Highlighted by 200 illustrations-unforgettable photographs, informative maps, and stunning examples of sacred art from all over the globe-every page of this elegant, eloquent book brings new understanding both of the unique roots of the world's great religions and of the universal principles they share, all the more timely in this era when our world is divided by conflict, often stemming from differences in faith. Here are the great figures-a creator god common to all, even the earliest tribal beliefs, and the teachers and prophets: Buddha, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad. Witness their teachings, along with the holy places where they flourished and the age-old observances that mark their traditions, from the Hindu ritual bathing in the Ganges before prayer to the Muslim hajj to Mecca, from the Jewish Passover seder to the Christian celebration of Christ's Resurrection.
