The Facts About Buddhism by Alison Cooper


The Facts About Buddhism by Alison Cooper

'Facts About Buddhism' explores the basic facts of the Buddhist faith through a series of direct questions such as How did Buddhism begin? What do Buddhists believe? and Is storytelling important to Buddhists?. It was previously published by Hodder Wayland as 'What Do We Know About Buddhism?'. This simplified and updated edition provides a factual insight into the Buddhist faith and it's history, practices and beliefs.


A beautifully illustrated, well designed set of books that lays out the basic facts about the beliefs and practices ... in a manner that is hard to fault. Clarity of text and illustration is perhaps their most valuable asset. Alison Cooper writes in a positive and relatively undemanding way ... these are fine books and an asset to any library shelves. -- TES Teacher
