Founders of Faith: The Parallel Lives of God's Messengers
Founders of Faith explores the lives of the Founders of the world's major religions - including Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and the Bahá'í Faith - and reveals that they are linked by sets of striking patterns. These patterns suggest that our world's religions share universal teachings and have a common divine source. Author Harold Rosen explains how the Founders of the major religions function as the teachers of humanity; how their station differs from that of seers, visionaries, and minor prophets; and how their teachings transformed not only the civilizations that embraced them, but also humanity as a whole. Founders of Faith provides an examination of the rise and fall of religious civilizations, an illustrative overview of six such civilizations, as well as the background and apparent shape of the emerging global civilization.
