    One thought on “The Illustrated Guide to World Religions”

    1. Niche Book that is Somewhat Deceptive as to What it isThere's nothing wrong with having a book written from a Christian Perspective that outlines other world religions and how to approach adherents of those religions to convert them to Evangelical Christianity. What is wrong however is presenting it as a comparative religions book without making that particular quality clear on the book cover.This book does a reasonable job at stating in the first section what it is. The problem is, most people [...]

    2. I read this hoping for a review of my religious studies college courses. While it was different than expected (with a Christian explanation of everything) the Christian background was helpful for me as I am a Christian and it explained things in ways a Christian would understand. I found the charts helpful listing important comparisons between the various aspects of each religion. Yes, it is not an in depth and extremely thorough analysis of each religion, but it was sufficient for my purposes.

    3. If you are looking to gain a more than basic outline of world religions, than this book is not enough for you. Also, the advice on how Christians ought to evangelize people of religions could be a bit distracting if your primary intention in reading this book is to gain a significant understanding of world religions. That said, it is an informative book, especially if you are a Christian who wants to be able to engage members of these religions on faith related questions.

    4. (4.5) If you really wanted to learn about other world views other than Christianity, you could look up all of this stuff on their websites or . However, in each chapter they gave hints about witnessing to people with different world views and how their culture will try to cast doubt on Christianity. Those facts help to make this book worth getting.

    5. How very uninformative. I was hoping this would be a look inside the religions of the world. It is more like a guide for Christians trying to convert people of the world religions. At the end of each chapter about each religion there was a graph that compared the religion to Christianity. If I had known it was a biased book I would have found something else.

    6. I should have read a little more about this book before picking it up at the bookstore. It is, in fact, a guide to world religions, but it is mainly a guide for Christian missionaries. Each chapter has a religion reviewed with basic tennants of that religion, and then a section that teaches Christians how to convert these people to Christianity. This was not my cup of tea.
