I really enjoyed this, in several sittings. The majority of the book introduces us to major religions, compares their truths and highlights their strengths, all of which is great for appreciating the wealth hidden in our existing beliefs.
The final section highlights two paradoxes; 1) That science accepts that the universe as no longer objective, but tends to disregarded subjective realities such as the experience of God as unscientific, and 2) That as science can only measure what it can control, an omnipotent God is by definition beyond the realm of science. Obvious perhaps, but the implications are worth the read.
It is a great book for opening the mind, esp. in relating religious texts to the cultures in which they were written, and their resulting strengths and weaknesses.

HUSTON SMITH IS ARGUABLY THE GREATEST SCHOLAR ALIVE THAT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE DOUBTERS OF RELIGION OR WHO ARE ATHEISTS SHOULD READ. HIS MIND WILL PERSUADE SECULARISTS AS TO THE TRUTH AND VIRTUES OF RELIGION IN AN AGE OF "SCIENTISTIC" BELIEF.
