Christianity and World Religions:Wrestling With Questions People Ask, by Adam Hamilton


Synopsis: Christianity and World Religions: Wrestling With Questions People Ask explores four major world religions- Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism – and compares the beliefs of each with those of Christianity. This book deals openly and honestly with questions people ask about other religions, including why we should believe the claims of Christianity over those of other faiths. As part of the study, author and presenter Adam Hamilton interviews a religious leader from each tradition. He treats the world religions with great respect, recognizing the unique contributions of each.
In examining these major world religions and the beliefs of their followers, the Reverend Hamilton urges us as Christians to build bridges with others so that we might grow in our faith, seek peace in our world, love our neighbor, and find positive ways to share the gospel.

Thoughts: Even though I've explored all four of these religions on my own, I found this book quite interesting, and learned a few new things.  I'm even thinking of suggesting that our weekly Bible study group consider this as a future study.
