In Significant Others, Monte Cox gives an overview over the most important religions: Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, Jainism, Shintoism, Bahai and Native American and Chinese spirituality. He starts each chapter with examples of how an individual might live out a particular religion with different levels of devotion. He then explains the history and the core beliefs of that religion. In a last step, he points out the most significant points of contact and points of contrast between that religion and Christianity. I really enjoyed reading Significant Others. The author had a very clear and understandable style. It was easy to follow his thoughts. He makes learning about other religions interesting and fun. I learned a lot of new things that I hadn't learnt at school or in my every day life. I also liked the sections about the similarities and differences between these religions and Christianity which provide an excellent base for talking to members of those religions. They also help to better understand their beliefs and traditions. I would recommend this book to anyone that is interested in learning about other religions. It might also be useful for people that are working in the mission field or in other intercultural contexts. Disclaimer: I received a free copy via netgalley in exchange for an honest opinion.
