Why are there so many religions? Do they basically teach the same thing? Are religious differences really important? Bruce and Stan address these questions and more as they take a close look at some of the world's major religions and belief systems. From Islam to Jehovah's Witnesses and from New Age Spirituality to Atheism, Darwinism, and Naturalism, this book features: key teachings of each religion; quick-glance belief charts; brief biographies of leaders; study questions for group or individual use; suggested reading for further study. Readers will also discover why spiritual searching is universal, how each religion compares to Christianity, the ten characteristics of cults, and what makes Christianity unique.
