    Even this book is not beach reading. You should have an interest in religions beyond your own denomination, if any, or in understanding how thinkers of the past used to see the world.

    You will be hard pressed to find a clearer and more readable explanation of the common framework for the great religions of the world. Other traditionalists tend to write a dense prose, expecting the student to be desperate to learn the Truth and well versed in mystical theory and practice. Huston Smith draws on his experience as an educator to try to make the topic more accessible. It will probably still not make sense to a large number of people, simply because the topic is unfamiliar and they may want (or be told) to disbelieve it. Smith uses a friendly, rational tone to make the reader consider and understand the topic regardless of whether one will ultimately let it influence one's own religious faith and practice (or lack thereof).

    It seems strange that religions that are usually thought to be in conflict, actually have a lot of common ground in their underlying worldview. It is as if the same rough sketch of the invisible world has emerged again and again in different ages and on different continents. Perhaps it was once the commonly accepted view of the world, as Smith seems to believe. Or perhaps it was actually only ever perceived by a small minority, but this minority included the great lights that lit up those religions that have lasted (with some changes) into our age.

    "Itself occupying no more than a single ontological plane, science challenged by implication the notion that other planes exist. As its challenge was not effectively met, it swept the field and gave the modern world its soul. For this is the final definition of modernity: an outlook in which this world, this ontological plane, is the only one that is genuinely countenanced and affirmed."

    Smith challenges this "modern" outlook with brilliance, wisdom, and style. Read it.


  3. says:

    includes a "treatment of the contrast between the modern worldview and the worldview of virtually every other culture in history" (Marcus Borg)


  4. says:

    A great book, lots of good info here. Well thought out and presented.


  5. says:

    The foundation of Wilbur's "integral" ideas was written by Huston Smith in this humble masterpiece.


  6. says:

    I don't think I understood everything in this book. I wish that I had.


  7. says:

    Second fav book by him that shows we're all connected! Beautiful! Look at similarities not differences


  8. says:

    grandma recommended this book to me. Interesting thesis, but I don't know if you can really boil down the world's religions into Platonism


  9. says:

    Find this hard to read, much heavier and more complex than most of my bedtime reading.


  10. says:

    Excellent overview of the world's religions by a true, openminded scholar. Signed copy.
