311 pages, illustrated. This is a nice book for Christians who wish to grasp the message and principle beliefs of Buddhism. Carus presents the Buddha's life in a collection of stories from his birth, attainment of enlightenment, teaching, to his death. Well written, it emulates the biblical style of the King Jame's Bible, occasionally puncuated with Ye, Thou, Thy, and so on. The stories are enjoyable but short and somewhat numerous. This edition appears to be made from the original plates, with original intricate illustrations made for the work by Olga Kopetzky. Also included is a glossary of terms and a concordance with passages in the New Testament. This book convinced me that Christianity is historically the child of both Judaism and Buddhism.

I have read a lot of books of buddhism, but this book impress me a lot because it is written clearly with lucid english with a clear and authorative records on early buddhism based on historical facts, I feel happy and hope it can one day be appreciated by chinese readers and perhaps such classical book be translated to other languages and I hope great publicity be given to this book to create a greater awareness of the noble teachings of buddha and to remove common misconceptions about buddhism. Please declare it to the public for anyone who may wish to publish it or duplicate it for further circulation and distribution free of charge to the thirsty world is quest of noble truth. I hope to see more of such books with such fluent and beautiful language and pray for its greater success asoka lai singapore feb 98 i

Yep, this seller is selling these ebooks, which are taken without permission from the free site, GlobalGrey. All his books are from that website, and are available there for free.
