The authors are all top academics in the field. Their insights are a great help to those seeking to get a feeling of the Lotus Sutra in the world of Medieval Asia and Japan.
I found this a great help in getting a better understanding. So little has been written in English, I applaud the editors and the publisher.

This book is quite a gem. Intended for a popular / undergraduate audience, it unpacks the Lotus Sutra in a number of compelling and obviously well-considered ways. Next time I teach a class on Chinese religion, I will certainly think about assigning it (or at least selections from it).

Only read several relevant chapters for teaching, will revisit this book later. This is definitely the best scholarship on the Lotus Sutra.

Currently readings. Really excellent, a needed gap-filler.
