Zoroastrianism may not be a religion many people have heard of, but it is a religion. It pre-dates Judaism, and may (in fact) be the foundation for Judaism, Christianity and Islam, as it has as its focus a "One-God," and the expectation that humans act in accordance with some sort of divine "inspiration."

What many don't know is that Zoroastrianism is still practiced today, although its numbers are dwindling quickly. This is because its adherents are not required to proselytize, may marry outside the religion, may change religions in the name of familial peace, and need not raise their children to be Zoroastrians.

It is almost as if its only expectation is that humanity (individually and collectively) should leave the world better off for our having been here. Very simple, but also very profound.

Read this book, and see where the monotheistic religions got their primary impetus.

Zoroastrianism is often referred to as the earliest Christianity. It is hard to state that Christianity didn't come from this ancient religion who has its roots in N. Iran there are numinous roots written primary for the scholar and the serious researcher, this is of no exception.

It is light and sketchy, giving only facts the author deem relevant. the parallels between this earlier belief system and earlier Christianity cannot be ignored. As a primer, it is recommend.

It really contains nothing of value. It is little more than western failure to understand a great religion. It is a total waste.
