About the Author:

John S. Strong is the Charles A. Dana Professor of Religion at Bates College. He received an M.A. from Hartford Seminary and a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. His research and teaching focuses on the History of Religions, Asian Religions, and Buddhist Studies.

Review:

Oliver Freiberger, University of Texas, Austin: "Frankly, I would be having a hard time trying to think of ways to improve the book. It is an excellent collection that I have used in several classes. The selection and length of the passages, as well as Strong's short but excellent commentaries are just fine as they are".

Todd Lewis, College of the Holy Cross: "I like this text and use it. It is skillful and insightful in trying not to fall into old nonsense and has brought important texts into discussion".
