Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0912517441, Paperback)

Each of the 100 men and women profiled in this book have discovered for themselves and inspired others to find ways to reach God and find inner peace. Readers will be fascinated about the many different religions and beliefs from around the world and throughout history.

Chronologically presented, this book begins with Abraham (c. 19th century BC)and ends with Tenzin Gyatso, the Dalai Lama (b. 1935). Both men, although centuries apart, discovered a faith that could not be struck down. Abraham, according to the Old Testament, had his faith challenged when God ordered him to kill his son Isaac. Today, the Dalai Lama lives in exile from his Tibetan homeland, pushed out by the Chinese Communists in an attempt to eradicate religion.

As with the other titles in Bluewood`s popular 100 Series, each entry in 100 Spiritual Leaders Who Shaped World History includes an illustration, photograph, or map, accompanied by concise and clearly written text - teeming with facts and nuggets of information. The book also featues a timeline, trivia quiz and a complete index.
