A Study of the Guru Granth Sahib by J. S. Grewal

This book analyses the compositions of the Gurus in terms of their awareness of contemporary social order, polity and religious traditions. It discusses the conception of liberation-in-life in relation to their concept of God. The author shows that the Gurus reflect on the emergence of the Sikh Panth as a new social organisation, and its role in universal redemption.
