    1 thought on “Zarathustra and Zoroastrianism: A Short Introduction

    1. Arguably the best introduction to Zoroastrianism and its founding figure I have ever encountered Concise, well organized and thoughtful in its presentation, no study of world religions would be complete without recourse to this book.

    2. I really liked it for the first book on it and him that i ve read Talks about everything in compact paragraphs that were easy to get lost in unless you knew it was coming Gives a few ideas on influences on other religions too.
