From the Back Cover:

The wisdom expressed by the world’s sacred writings is one of humanity ‘s greatest treasures. Generations of men and women have sought answers to the mysteries of life in these ancient texts. 'The Illustrated Book of Sacred Scriptures' is an inspiring collection of readings from sacred literature exploring the perspectives of the world’s religions on universal themes. It both celebrates our spiritual diversity and demonstrates the common understanding that links all people engaged in the spiritual quest.

Never before have so many of the world’s sacred writings been available to English- speaking readers. Today’s spiritual seekers have an unparalleled opportunity to draw inspiration from the teaching of familiar faiths as well as from traditions previously little known. 'The Illustrated Book of Sacred Scriptures' gathers holy texts from around the world and across the ages. It invites readers to discover for themselves the perennial wisdom that lies at the heart of humanity’s rich spiritual heritage.
