Item Description...
How does the universe come to exist? What is the nature of its creator? Is there a purpose to human existence? What is it to live a good life? The Routledge Dictionary of Religious and Spiritual Quotations offers not just one answer to these questions, but many. The fundamental questions concerning God and Man are as old as humanity, finding new expressions and answers in every society and age. The revealed word of Jehovah, Allah and Krishna, of Christ, Mohammad and the Buddha and the inspiration of religious and mystic experience have produced the world's richest and most extensive literature. In this collection of over 3000 quotations the reader should discover the diversity of that literature and the fertility of religious thought, experience and practice throughout history. Geoffrey Parrinder has drawn on all the great books of the world's religions - the Bible, Qur'an, Zoroastrian Gathas, Hindu Vedas, Bhagavad Gita, Jewish Mishnah, Sikh Adi Granth and Chinese Tao Te Ching. Read the words of prophets, scholars and mystics on the nature of the divine, the ethics of human conduct and the puzzles of mortality, resurrection and life after death.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Scholarly Collection of Religious Quotations  May 14, 2004
This is one of three books of religious quotations I keep handy for preparing my sermons and other religious writings. The other two are The Quotable Spirit (Lorie & Mascetti) and Treasury of Religious Quotations (Tomlinson).

Parrinder is Emeritus Professor of the Comparative Study of Religions at the University of London. His book is the most scholarly and philosophical of the three. Many of the quotations seem to be chosen to illustrate theological positions rather than for any power to inspire. The book also has a greater emphasis on British sources than the other two.

The 3000 quotes are grouped under 177 topics. Unlike other sources which order topics alphabetically, Parrinder divides the 177 topics into 18 thematic chapters. A subject index is included for the more alphabetically inclined. However, variants of the same term (e.g. agnostic, agnosticism, and agnostics) are indexed separately. An author index is also included.

Parrinder's Christian orientation shows both in the selection of topics and in the selection of quotations. Nearly every topic starts with a quote from the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) and a quote from the New Testament (usually using the King James translation for both). Some of these selections seem forced, as if Parrinder feels he must include two Bible quotes for each topic. All other quotations are placed after the Bible quotes.

The sources most frequently cited (other than scriptures or founders of world religions) are: Aristotle, Augustine of Hippo, Francis Bacon, William Blake, Book of Common Prayer, Albert Camus, John Donne, Meister Eckhart, Mircea Eliade, R. W. Emerson, E. E. Evans-Pritchard, Samuel Johnson, C. G. Jung, John Milton, Blaise Pascal, Plato, John Ruskin, William Shakespeare, Alfred Tennyson, Charlotte Vaudeville (on Kabir), and William Wordsworth.

An earlier edition of the book was published as A Dictionary of Religious & Spiritual Quotations.
