Book review

Confucianism is both an ancient path and a revitalized tradition. Kongzi (known as Confucius) was a 5th century B.C.E. scholar and philosopher who initiated a way of life that still influences Chinese thought and culture; it stands poised to become even more important as New Confucianism recovers the tradition's strengths.

Jeffrey Richey, a specialist in ancient and early medieval Chinese and Japanese religious history, especially Confucian and Daoist studies, has published widely in scholarly journals, encyclopedias, and edited anthologies. This exploration of Confucianism's origins, development, beliefs, texts, and practices is both accessible and illuminating, giving the reader a solid introduction to this deeply influential tradition.

• Easy-to-read historical background.
• Study questions after each section to facilitate learning.
• Gorgeous, full-color pictures.
• Select bibliography for further study.
• Perspectives of New Confucianism.

“’The Patheos Guide to Confucianism’ is sound and accurate, succinctly and concisely sketching the main tenets, ideas, beliefs and practices of the Confucian tradition.” – On-cho Ng, Professor of History & Religious Studies, Pennsylvania State University
