    One thought on “What Christians Can Learn from Other Religions”

    1. There are some books I hate to review. Some are books I disagree with, the other are books that are very badly written, whether theologically or just plain bad. I hate to review these books because these review will hurt the authors and the publishers, but reviews exists for a reason - to help potential buyers discern whether or not to buy a certain book. So it is with this intention in mind that I pen this review.First, let me say what is good about this book. I like how the book decided to cov [...]

    2. Philip Wogaman, former senior minister at Washington D.C.'s Foundry United Methodist Church, a congregation whose members included Bill and Hillary Clinton along with Bob and Elizabeth Dole, as well as former President of the Interfaith Alliance and professor of Christian ethics at Wesley Theological Seminary, writes a book that I think should have great value to Christians who wonder whether there is something to learn from their neighbors who hail from religions other than their own. Once Prot [...]

    3. The bottom line: Heretical doctrine that not only departs from the basic tenets of Christianity, but also blatantly promotes syncretism.In this book, the author aims “to make and illustrate a central point: Christians can and should learn from other religions.”After an introduction to lay the foundation, the book proceeds to dedicate one chapter to a particular religion (e.g Primal religions, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism). Each chapter first describes a common theme or belief of the ot [...]

    4. This is an interesting book. The author tells his Christian viewpoint of what other religions are about and then how he thinks Chrisians can benefit from some of what he thinks their concepts are. He looks at most of the world's religions, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Jainism, Sikhism, Baha'i, atheism, and even Confucianism and Primal Religions. The author's views are very open and accepting although I am not sure that members of the various religions that he portrays would all ag [...]

    5. Absolutely clear and interesting, especially with regard to the less popular religions. The only thing that left me a bit puzzled has been the way in which sometimes the author, absolutely in my opinion, took as understood that "Christianity is better anyway," but maybe this is just my impression as a non-native English speaker.Chiaro ed assolutamente interessante, specialmente per quanto riguarda le religioni meno famose. L'unica cosa che mi ha lasciato un pochino perplessa é stata la maniera [...]

    6. I liked this book. I thought it was clear, concise, easy to understand, and a great addition to the volumes Christians could be reading about interfaith relations and religious studies. Perfect for Sunday School classrooms. I was really worried it would be dense, but it's a very lay-friendly book.

    7. I liked his approach that all religions have something to learn from each other. Well researched and as interestingly written as possible considering the depth and breadth of the subject matter.
