Book summary: This detailed dictionary brings together the biographies of leading men and women who have had a significant impact on religion, among them founders, prophets, teachers, mystics, reformers, missionaries, holymen, saints, miracle workers, theologians and political leaders. The wide range of entries includes major figures from Plato, Moses, Lao Tzu and Olaf the Holy, patron saint of Norway, to Gandhi, Sun Myung Moon, Mother Teresa and Desmond Tutu. Each religion is given a broad perspective. Buddhism, for example, is considered in Tibet, China and Japan as well as South Africa; Islam is not merely restricted to the Middle East but appears also in its African and Asian contexts, while the entries on Christianity are concerned not only with the western world but also with the eastern orthodox churches, and Christians in Africa, Latin America, Asia and the Pacific Islands.
