This important volume explores the lives of the five founders of major world religions--Moses, Buddha, Confucius, Jesus, and Muhammad--chronicling what is actually known of these charismatic men and introducing readers to the cultural and religious worlds that heard their messages. Readers in predominantly Christian lands, in addition to learning about the lives of Confucius, Buddha, and Muhammad--whom they might not be familiar with--will also be introduced to modern research now casting fresh light on the careers of Moses and Jesus.
