Bailey has done a good job of putting together a relevant and coherent picture of Hinduism through the articles… The book, as a whole, is a good company for those who want to refer to Hinduism at different times of his need, since the different aspects are well categorized. It is not a boring theological tratise. Some sections are really brilliant literary pieces, which linger in memory….what stands out is the diligence and objectivity of this bunch of scholars, who have taken up so much effort to understand and explain such a deep and ancient socio-religious system of the world in lucid language. A reading of this book will be a tribute to their labour of love.
