Editorial Reviews

Review

Kenneth A. Briggs The Philadelphia Inquirer The Compendium of stories is rich and intriguing....a solid contribution to the study of comparative religion.

Annie Dillard All roads to the sacred run through the tricky terrain of miracles. For those making the journey, Ken Woodward's The Book of Miracles is a wise and delightful guide.

Colman McCarthy The Washington Post Book World Journalists are rarely scholars, scholars are rarely journalists. Kenneth L. Woodward...ably displays a mastery of both roles.

William F. Buckley, Jr. There is nowhere else to go to survey the whole scene, meaning Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam. Absolutely necessary for those who are curious.
