Synopsis: Presents biographies of the historical figures credited with founding the five world religions, chronicling what is actually known about the charismatic figures, and introduces the cultural and religious worlds that heard their messages.

From Booklist: If God is indeed in the details, then this compilation delves into Him well. The contributors tell the stories of five great religious founders--Moses, Jesus, Shakyamuni Buddha, Muhammad, and Confucius--and their traditions. Each contributor chooses one founder and tradition and argues powerfully that understanding them is deepened by viewing faith traditions as tributaries of a great river rather than incompatible worldviews. Inherent to that argument is a challenge to sociologist Max Weber's theory of religious founders, and when the contributors start squabbling over details of Weber's analysis in the conclusion, even courageous readers may become discouraged. Also discouraging is the section on Moses, which fails to give nonacademic readers enough background on rabbinic Judaism. The other sections, however, don't leave armchair religion scholars behind. Although perhaps too complex an introduction to these figures and their traditions, the book will provide enthusiasts of Christianity and World Religions, masterminded by Hans Kung, and Karen Armstrong's History of God (1993) with some of the deeper, broader analyses that they may be seeking.
