A lively, compelling, and truly informative book on Hinduism, it traces the belief system from its ancient riverbank origins to its present day status as a major world religion. It paints a comprehensive picture of Hinduism and takes the reader on a journey as it asks, and answers, life's most timeless and enduring questions.

The best introduction to the tenants of Hinduism I have yet read.From Library Journal:
This primer, serving some of the vast sweep of Hindu belief and practice, takes the form of dialog between a Hindu father and his American-born son. The son wants to understand his family's religious traditions and discover what is relevant for him today. The book is useful not only to American Hindus but to those who want a nontechnical introduction to Hinduism as lived today. The book also explains how Hinduism engages in dialog with Western science and culture. Recommended for large public libraries and undergraduate collections.
