Title : World scripture: a comparative anthology of sacred texts

Description :
World Scripture is the online version of a book collecting an extensive number of scriptural excerpts from major contemporary religious traditions. Assembled by Dr Andrew Wilson, the extracts are arranged thematically, dealing with beliefs about the divine, the purpose of human existence, religious life and ethics, and so forth. Each section has an introductory paragraph to set the material in context, but no detailed analysis of the texts is given. While students and teachers of comparative religion will find useful material within these pages, users should note that the site seems to focus on the similarities between world religions rather than their differences, and that consequently the extracts presented may not always give the complete picture.
