Philosophers and Religious Leaders provides a synopsis of the lives and legacies of 200 men and women from the areas of religion and philosophy who have "changed the world." These individuals have developed, extended, or exemplified ideas fundamental to the way human beings perceive the meaning and purpose of their own lives and of their societies. Some have challenged prevailing convictions and worked for immediate change during their lifetimes; others have proposed new modes of thinking that have flourished only after their passing.

About the Author:

CHRISTIAN D. VON DEHSEN is a professor of religion at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He has published a collaborated book, Policy and Politics: The Genesis and Theology of Social Statements in the Lutheran Church in America, and was the book review editor for the Lutheran Forum. He received his M.Phil. and Ph.D. from the Union Theological Seminary in New York.

From Library Journal:

Von Dehsen (religion, Carthage Coll.) gathers biographies of "200 men and women from the areas of religion and philosophy who have changed the world." Page-long biographies of world figures like Moses, Muhammad, Jesus, and the Buddha are accompanied--perhaps arbitrarily (or is it for reasons of political correctness?)--by much lesser personages such as Michel Foucault, Mary Daly, and Jacques Derrida. Nevertheless, this partially illustrated work is a helpful ready-reference source, containing succinct biographies with short bibliographies plus time lines marking the individual's life in the context of contemporaneous events. The book's most useful feature is probably its inclusion of some important religious figures--e.g, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, the leader of the Lubavitch Hasidim, and Nanak, the founder of Sikhism--whose biographies are not usually found in standard or easily accessible sources. Useful for both public and secondary school libraries.
