Long Walk to Enlightenment is the author’s attempt to understand the five Middle Eastern religions known as the “Religions of Revelation.” He focuses on Christianity and Islam. Two significant features of Middle Eastern religions are their credence to monotheism and their claims to having been revealed by God. The author makes an earnest attempt to understand how the “wisdom religions,” Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, engage in their search for the Infinite, Absolute Truth. He therefore identifies the major differences between these two groups of religions to make a significant contribution to the science of religion.
