Overview

This introduction to Zoroastrianism assumes no prior knowledge of the faith. The book presents Zoroastrianism as a deep and multi-faceted religious tradition that has been subject to a process of evolution and which, therefore, despite its apparent conservatism, is a dynamic and relevant to the twentieth century as it was when it was established some 1400 uears befpre Christianity. Zoroastrianism is shown here to be a living faith with a coherent theology and a persuasive ethic of good thought, good words and good deeds.
