Many other belief systems try to place themselves on the same level as Christianity, and many people believe that just believing in anything is good enough. With in-depth information about world religions, cults and non-religious worldviews, British publisher John Hunt covers well-known and little-known ideologies, letting each speak for itself (quoting sacred texts for many examples) before contrasting it to Christianity. Scientology, Judaism, atheism and Zoroastrianism are just a few of the many belief systems examined in light of the Gospel in this volume of AMG's Handi-Reference Series.
