Book Review - Understanding World Religions: A Bible-Based Review of 50 Faiths
About the Book
Confused by the varying religious viewpoints in your workplace, neighborhood, even your family? Understanding World Religions—contrasting 50 world faiths with Christianity—can help. Christians believe Jesus’ claim to be “the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6), though dozens of other religions propose varying pathways to God, heaven, or personal fulfillment. Describing these alternate viewpoints fairly and non-judgmentally, Understanding World Religions features major world faiths (Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism), Christian-based religions (Mormonism, Unification Church, Christian Science), traditional religions (African, Chinese, Native American), and various hard-to-categorize beliefs (Gnosticism, Hare Krishna, New Age Spirituality, Wicca). This fully-illustrated guide is a fascinating and useful tool to help you understand others’ beliefs.
My Take on the Book
This was a very complete book! Each of the fifty faiths are examined fully and you get to leave reading this with a much better understanding of not only the history of each of them but also the basic tenets of each too. I found this book to be very interesting and left with a much greater understanding of these faiths. I was impressed with how vast this was too as their were faiths that I had never heard of held within the book!
