Its modernism and mysticism are explored in essays on the holy Guru Granth Sahib, the first translations and scholarship in English, the poetry of modern Punjabi literature; and 20th century Sikh fiction writers. A great book for introducing yourself and others to the heart of Sikhism.

Reader Reviews Wonderful book but… I had an opportunity to go through this wonderful book. It contains very informative material. I find the chapter pretty weak.
