Product Description

AMG's Handi-Reference World Religions & Cults clearly analyzes Christian religions, sects, and cults, and then highlights their dangers and compares them with the truth of Scripture. Religions and cults that claim to be Christian but function in a manner grossly contrary to Scripture are exposed.
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.
