Overview

Confused by the varying religious views in your workplace, neighborhood, even your family? Check out the Handbook of World Religions-contrasting 50 faiths with Christianity. 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 ultimate personal fulfillment. Describing these alternate viewpoints fairly and non-judgmentally, the Handbook of World Religions features major world faiths (Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism), Christian-based religions (Mormonism, the Unification Church, Christian Science), traditional religions (African, Chinese, Native American), and various hard-to-categorize beliefs (Gnosticism, Hare Krishna, New Age Spirituality, Rastafarianism, Wicca). This fully-illustrated guide is a fascinating and useful tool to help Christians understand others' beliefs.
