So one of my New Year's Resolutions is to read some texts used by other religions. Some are pretty obvious - the Qu'ran, for instance - but of course, not all religions are based on a text. So can anyone give me any ideas? I'm wanting books that are fairly readable, if possible; not just books about religions, like "Buddhism for Dummies", but books that are (preferably) considered somewhat central to a religion, or hugely influential within it. I'll probably go for 10 books all up (one a month, leaving out June and July because I'll probably be newly postpartum and unable to absorb anything more meaningful than a Peanuts comic). So, is there a "must-read" Wiccan text, for instance?
Also, if anyone can point me in the direction of good, respected translations for the non-English texts, that'd be awesome, as "learn Arabic" is sadly not a New Year's Resolution!
Muchly appreciated! :)
