Summary

Novak has created a world Bible for our time from Buddhist, Hindu, Confucian, Taoist, Jewish, Christian, Islamic and primal religion sources. The most powerful and elegant expressions of the religious spirit are coupled with authentic, poetic translations, insightful introductions, and "grace notes" that show how each tradition is best expressed as it is lived out.
