Professional reviews

"The Thomases, who have written collaborate biographies on famous philosophers and composers here tell us their view of 20 influential religious leaders. The well known, such as Moses, Jesus, Buddha, and Mohammed, are here, as well as the not-so-well known, such as Swedenborg, Brigham Young, and Mary Baker Eddy. The authors seem to imply the existence of a higher being and see in the religious impulse a common spring for all faiths. Nadia May gives an energetic performance. Her tone is upbeat, and her voice is expressive and clear. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
