Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
Answer:

While not every religion has a holy book or a single central text, there are quite a few that do. Religions vary significantly in their beliefs, practices, and sacred scriptures, but many of them have their beliefs codified in some form. Some religions have well-defined holy books that serve as foundational texts, while others may rely on oral traditions, multiple texts, or a combination of written and oral sources.

The Jews have the Tanakh, a collection of the Torah, Nevi'im (Prophets), and Ketuvim (Hagiographa). The Christians use the Tanakh as the Old Testament, and combine it with the New Testament to make the Bible. Muslims have the Quran while Hindus have the Vedas, Upanishads, Ramayana, and Mahabharata. Buddhists have the Tripitaka as their collection of teachings whereas the Sikhs have it all written down in the Guru Granth Sahib. The Agamas are sacred texts for the Jains whereas Laozi's Daodejing is the fundamental text for Taoism. The Lunyu is attributed to Confucius and is the basis for Confucianism while the Baha'i doctrines of faith are written down in several texts including the Kitáb-i-Íqán, the Hidden Words, and the Kitáb-i-Aqdas - the Most Holy Book. One of the world's oldest religions, Zoroastrianism, has its collection of sacred texts compiled into the Avesta and the Church of the Latter-Day Saints uses the Book of Mormon as their text.

Of the incorrect answers, while some of them contain profound knowledge, they are not religious books. They include Sūnzǐ Bīngfǎ, Sun Tzu's "Art of War", "I Ching", known as the "Book of Changes", a Chinese book that explores philosophical and metaphysical concepts through a system of hexagrams, Dante Alighieri's "Divine Comedy" which explores a journey from Hell into Heaven, and "Go Rin No Sho" ("The Book of Five Rings"), a book about martial arts. Also included in the list are Herman Hesse's "Siddhartha" a work of fiction about Buddha, Ekhart Tolle's "The Power of Now" which talks about mindfulness, the "Rubāʿiyāt-i Khayyām" ("The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam") which finds meaning in birth and death.
