From the Jacket:

This is an original work by an eminent teacher of Philosophy and Religion who can present the best results of Indian and Western scholarship and evaluate them in the light of unbiased insight.

The chapters on comparison of Bengal Vaisnavism with Christianity and Existentialism are highly stimulating.

The book is indispensable to those advanced students of oriental philosophy and religion who are devoted to research work, since no knowledge of oriental philosophy and religion will be complete without a clear understanding of Vedanta and the different types of Vaisnavism.
