Review
Brown (Noah's Other Son ), a United Church of Canada minister, was surprised that the sacred scriptures of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are not usually included in a single volume. He includes all three here, emphasizing the common ground among these monotheistic religions and their texts. As editor, he utilizes reputable scholars from the three religious traditions to give introductory information on the sacred texts as well as providing commentary. In particular, he emphasizes the ways in which Zoroastrianism influenced all these sacred writings. It is curious that Brown includes the entirety of the New Testament and the Quran but only the first five books (Torah) of the Hebrew Bible. Nonetheless, what is here is useful for comparative analysis as persons from each tradition may not have read the other texts or studied them as is possible here. VERDICT General readers and undergraduates with an interest in these monotheistic religions and their sacred writings will find this book to be very helpful.— John Jaeger, Dallas Baptist Univ. Lib. --John Jaeger (Reviewed September 1, 2012) (Library Journal, vol 137, issue 14, p106)
