    I have just finished reading an amazing book by Dr. Surindar Singh Kohli titled 'Sikhism and Guru Granth Sahib'. I just wanted to pass it on to everyone else who is interested in good reads. I thought that it gave a very fair and just discussion on different elements of Sikhism. It addresses (I take from the contents) a definition of Sikhism, its origins and features, unity of sikh thought, the Sikh religion towards humanity (very good), the Sikh scriptures (my favourite), martyrs and position of women in Sikhism. The second half focuses on Guru Granth Sahib in regards to the uniqueness (amazing), the compilation, editing, composers of the divine poetry and philosophy.

    If anyone reads this book or has, could you also share your thoughts about it with me?

    Why don't you post this review and the book information - author, publisher, date and title in the Scholarly Books List thread. I am sure people will see your comments and find them interesting in that thread where many other books have already been compiled.

    Aad0002 ji,

    I must admit that I am having a little laugh to myself right now. You are truly a helpful member of both sites that I am looking at - so thank-you again! I promise that I do get better with time on these things :), it just takes a while!!

    I am a little curious. SPN is the only site where I am an active member. I am an administrator on a social network called Universal Mind and a member of sikhnetsevadhars--but they are private and not too active. What is the second site? All the other sites that I joined were only to see what was going on. They were kind of boring.

    Are you not on Sikhnet? I may be completely loosing the plot here but I am sure that you gave advice on that one too. But no worries! Either way, you have been helpful. Take Care
