A Buddhist Bible is a book by Dwight Goddard, first published in 1932. A cherished book among the Beat writers, especially Jack Kerouac, the book played a significant role in the spread of Buddhism in the English-speaking world throughout the 20th century. In this initial edition, focused primarily on source documents of Zen Buddhism, Goddard skillfully compiled the finest available translations of essential texts and conducted extensive edits to eliminate repetitive passages and extraneous material. Consequently, this edition is designed for readers rather than scholars, yet it faithfully preserves the profound message of the sutras, if not amplifies it.

This book has 67,900 words, 130 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1932.
