NOW you can now literally own the wisdom of the ages--all major world scriptures from the Bible to the Rig-Veda. Experience six thousand years of faith, from the oldest texts such as the Babylonian Enuma Elish and the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Includes the Bible in English, Hebrew, Greek and Latin, linked to extensive reference material, along with the Apocrypha. Sit with the wisest rabbis of antiquity and give your mind a world-class workout while they argue the fine points of the Talmud. The Quran is included, in both Arabic and English, along with other key Islamic texts such as the Hadith and the mystical Sufis. Read the most important documents of Christianity, from the earliest days, through the Reformation and modern times.

Own a massive and comprehensive set of scriptures from Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Sikhism, and other eastern religions. You get the entire 50 volume Sacred Books of the East series: including the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, Taoist Texts, the Dhammapada, the Lotus Sutra, Hindu Law books, Vedic Hymns, I Ching, the Chinese Classics, and more. Read English translations of all four Vedas, rescued from obscurity, as well as the Sanskrit of the Rig-veda. Read the beloved Hindu epics, the Mahabharata and Ramayana, in their entirety. You can also read the historical sources of Wicca, New Age beliefs, and even Atheism. Whatever your religious beliefs, this is a must-have if you want to understand world religions. No other religious studies collection is as comprehensive or well-organized.

You get hundreds of books about oral traditions and folklore that go back to the dawn of humanity. Take a trip to the Kalahari, Siberia, or the Australian outback and hear the oldest stories in the world from tribal elders and shamans. Sail with the ancient Polynesians from New Zealand to Hawaii and Easter Island. Follow the adventures of tricksters, culture heroes and animals from Native America. Journey back to ancient Rome and Greece and feast on rich classical mythology. Enjoy the legends and sagas of the European dark ages, and wonderful Celtic folklore of gods, heroes and fairies. Read all of the primary sources of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, including the Kalevala and the Eddas. Open up dusty--and very authentic--books of magic, peer into the future with Nostradamus, get a Tarot reading, visit legendary lost continents and learn occult secrets--if you dare. All of these and more are included on the drive.

I highly recommend this to both the professional clergy, and the amateur researcher. It saves the wait for internet connections and web page loads, and provides a broad range of documents.--customer review.

Here's what customers are saying about the Sacred-Texts 9.0 media content:

  • ... it will be a great bargain as anyone that collects books on these topics will recognize.
  • I loved the search index and will use it greatly
  • I think it is very good value, even with the exchange rate differences. Books are very expensive in Australia anyway, so for me any electronic reference library is good value.
  • I was able to navigate easily through things.... I think [the price] is very fair.... that's a lot of data, having it in one place is very handy
  • It seems very well done, all around very high quality.
  • I think $99.95 is a very reasonable price for the DVD Rom, I will buy it and may even buy a gift or two for friends.

    This is an excellent product. Hours and hours of material to search through. Books I've never even heard of and some I've been searching for.
