Reviews

"This valuable reference work is the result of a monumental effort to bring together in a form accessible to English readers the basic terminology and doctrinal systems of the four great wisdom teachings of the East: Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, and Zen. . . . The Encyclopedia is clearly written, items are cross-referenced, and when a concept is given a different meaning by different traditions, each interpretation is provided for the reader. . . . A necessary reference book for everyone's bookshelf."--Karuna "Very satisfying . . . A certain reverence to the Eastern traditions on the part of the writers seeps through every page of this admirable volume. One comes to love it."--The Advent "A useful--indeed essential--source of just the kind of authoritative information any knowledgeable person needs in the post-secular era of today. The material is judiciously selected and helpfully organized for ready access."--Professor Harvey Cox, Harvard Divinity School "This is a work no student of religion can dispense with. It is a highly professional, specialized, yet broadly informative book one needs for frequent consultation on such topics as the Lotus School, Nagarjuna, Zen Buddhism, Vasubandhu, or I Ching . The Encyclopedia of Eastern Philosophy and Religion covers in depth a very large number of entries, from the most general to the very specialistic, being a necessary tool in the orientation of a broad audience within the fascinating yet unfamiliar land of Eastern religions. It is an excellent instrument of knowledge for an essentially pluralistic age."--Ioan P. Couliano, author of Out of This World
