Once Prot [...]

Each chapter first describes a common theme or belief of the ot [...]

    4. This is an interesting book.

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.
