Written for the Western reader, this comprehensive guide is easy to access. Sidebars and information boxes provide a quick take of the practices of various religions and their many high-profile Western practitioners, while the text provides a thorough account of Eastern beliefs.
“This book aims to explain simply the origins, practices and philosophy of Eastern religions. The author teaches religion and philosophy at a community college, and she has a good sense of the text mechanisms that less sophisticated readers might need to help them read such a book. The wide margins of the text add chapter guides, highlights and reviews . . . Morgan writes in a breezy, casual style that is quite accessible . . . Major topics include Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism, with each major focus broken up into five or six chapters. A last part more quickly explores ‘roads less traveled, ‘ such as Jainism, Shinto and Tantra (the author handles sex here with a beguiling modesty and forthrightness). An index and glossary are useful.”–“Kliatt “
