An Introduction to Jodo Shinshu is written by one of the foremost scholars of Jodo Shinshu. Volume 1: The Salvation of Jodo Shinshu and its Structure begins with a discussion on the "meaning of death" and offers how religion in general and Jodo Shinshu in particular is meant to help us to overcome and otherwise transcend this very real problem in our spiritual and physical lives. The resolution to the problem of death, the meaning of salvation, and the path towards Buddhahood are also discussed as it relates to the teaching of Shinran Shonin, the founder of Jodo Shinshu. A full list of translated technical terms is also included.
