In one of the few books actually written by the Dalai Lama, he addresses one of the most important issues of our time: the polarization of the world along religious lines. His exploration of a possible kinship of faiths is hopeful, recognizing commonalities but at the same time fully mindful of the significant differences that will continue to exist between the world's traditional religions.

If for no other reason than to get a respectful idea of what the world's faiths hold, or at least a respectful man's honest and earnest belief of what they hold, read or listen to this book. I learned things that I hadn't known before about other religions and the author is incredibly respectful without trivializing or simplifying beyond the point of truth other faiths. And yet he makes no bones about where there are fundamental disagreements. It was respectful and enlightening. His core argument: that at the heart of each religion is compassion and we ought use that common ground to help our fellow man whatever their creed is a good thought. As is his example of respect for other religions even with fundamental disagreements. To be sure, the philosophical arguments are not powerful and complex. If you are looking for that look elsewhere. If you are honestly seeking to understand this is worth the read. This is a good man's good work.
