Uaha
I am a bit torn when writing this review. Along with volumes 1 and 2 of this series, in terms of content, volume 3 clearly deserves five stars as well. Beginning comprehensively enough with an interpretation of the religions of Eurasia (Turko-Mongol, Finno-Ugrian, Balto-Slav), the following seven chapters deftly handle the development of early Christian, Islamic, and post-second temple Jewish thought, including an excursus on Hermeticism, up to the Protestant Reformation. But then the final chapter of the book ends with "Tibetan Religions." And then, finis.
Clearly, before Eliade's death a year after its' publication, he had intended to compose a fourth volume. In the preface to this work he spoke of his intention to transfer to the "final volume" the "chapters on the expansion of Hinduism, medieval China, and Japanese religions." In addition, he also planned to include "a presentation of the archaic and traditional religions of America, Africa and Oceania." Finally, in the last chapter of his planned work, he tantalizingly offered "to analyze the religious creativity of modern societies."
Surely, anyone who has taken the time to read this three-volume tour de force from cover to cover can't help but be profoundly disappointed that Msr. Eliade was not granted just a few more years on this globe to complete this extraordinary work.
Would that I could write the final volume myself! Alas, I lack the breadth of learning and scholarly acumen that only the very few possess. Takers anyone? Anyone?? 'Tis a dream to be wished.

Why this particular volume is out of print when the other two can still be purchased is a mystery. Amazon.com has a mistake in their review - it is not the third or final volume of the series; it is the second volume and is subtitled: "From Gautama Buddha to the Triumph of Christianity." The final volume is subtitled: "From Muhammed to the Age of Reforms".
This volume is the best of the three, dealing with such divergent religious ideas as Buddhism, Hinduism, other Eastern religions, Judaism and Christianity. One should never forget that these three books are about religious ideas - not religion per se, and as such, the discussion is of a more theoretical nature. Philosophical concerns bubble to the surface as we began to ask ourselves why we worshipped as we did.
A very clear explication and history of Eastern thought is thoroughly discussed. New concepts are introduced as religious thought ranges from the morality of Chinese wise men to the pantheon of Hindu gods to the godless (but soon to be god) teachings of Buddha. As he notes, Buddha never attempted to present his teachings with any kind of structure. The various groupings and sayings were assembled after his death by his disciples. The same can be said of Jesus.
In discussing Judaism he stresses its utter uniqueness in the belief in only one god, Yahweh. This could be accomplished once the Israeli's forswore their primitive animism and saw God not as just a protector but as a Creator as well. The beginnings of Christianity are an exciting read with the maelstrom of religious ideas encircling and thriving off one another - Mithraism, Gnosticism, Manichaenism, the Ebionites, Greek gods...and out of this mix, Christianity triumphed having borrowed something from each of these groups.
