Guides to Sacred Texts RSS


The Guides to Sacred Texts series offers accessible introductions on writings that are revered as sacred texts in religions, both ancient and modern, around the world. Different religions take widely varying views of what makes a text sacred; this series includes sacred writings beyond those traditionally revered as "religions of the book."

Meant for non-specialists and suitable for classroom use, each volume covers topics such as date, authorship and historical context; extent and contents; canonical status; and interpretations. They also address any issues unique or heavily stressed in that tradition's writings.
