Founders of Faith explores the lives of the Founders of the world's major religions - including Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and the Baha'i 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.

Founders of Faith

Review by Shizu E. M. Futa on 9/21/2023

Mr. Rosen has assembled a comprehensive study of the prophets who founded 7 of the world's most noted religions. His material has been extensively researched and is a great platform for anyone wishing to write a comparative paper or book on any religion. Another facet of the book is the insight it casts upon the station of prophethood as separate from the human. It has been on my reference shelf for over a decade and is still one of my go-to's.

Of interest to anyone wanting to understand the origins of all the world's religions
