Edited by Alfred Bloom.
Foreword by Ruben Habito.

Renowned scholar Alfred Bloom presents the life and teachings of Shinran Shonin, the founder of Shin (or Pure Land) Buddhism, the most popular form of Buddhism in Japan, drawing extensively on the writings of this influential Japanese religious reformer. 

A scholarly, yet very readable work that comprehensively covers what we know of Shinran's life and provides a guide to Shinran's key ideas within the context of his life and religious career.

Includes a glossary of terms and a select bibliography for further reading.
