Description

As indicated in the title, this is a study in the historical evolution of the major faiths of mankind and their religious beliefs. It is not a study to prove who is right and who is wrong. As such it certainly has a different approach to the subject. The layout of the subject may not depict the usual traditional approach observed in religious works, but it certainly preserves its true historical background.

Rather then finding differences and keeping alive hatred and dislike for other faiths and beliefs he would have done better if he had understood the common purpose that exists behind all faiths. Much has been said and written about the conduct of people who in the name of religion have de-stabilized the world peace. The dangers of such religious polemics are evident in many areas of our planate. In the pluralistic world of today no one faith has the monopoly of the Truth. People are Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists or Muslims out of their sincere convictions. Endowed with the gift of intellect, and historical inheritance, people have chosen different paths and ways in their search for the Truth. We all eat the food grown in the same soil, drink water from the same springs and breathe the air from the same atmosphere. Even while holdin
