A critical task in Christian apologetics is understanding-properly-the relationship between other world religions and Christianity, where they overlap, and where they fundamentally divide.

Part two examines the religions in light of Christian teaching and responds to them by drawing on the Bible and historical Christianity. The appendix includes some helpful primary and secondary books relating to this theme for those who would like to read more.

  • An additional feature is the comparison of Christianity with world religions under 6 headings
  • Helps you understand and interact with people of other faiths

Publisher's Description

Derek Cooper examines the rival worldviews found in Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism, Judaism, Islam, and irreligion. He engages these worldviews from a Christian perspective, first by showing how the biblical authors engaged other religions and then by surveying the way Christian theologians have done so. Each chapter contains six parts: (i) a creation story, (ii) the religion’s historical origin, (iii) its beliefs, (iv) religious writings, (v) worship practices, (vi) as well as Christian reflections on the religion. For those who would like to read more, the appendix includes lists of helpful primary and secondary books.

Author Bio

Derek Cooper (MA, MDiv, Biblical Seminary; PhD, Lutheran Seminary, Philadelphia) is Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies and Historical Theology, Associate Director of the DMin program, and Director of the LEAD MDiv Program at Biblical Seminary in Hatfield, Pennsylvania. He is the author of several books, including Thomas Manton: A Guided Tour of the Life and Thought of a Puritan Pastor.

Endorsements

Derek Cooper has written a conversational and eminently accessible introduction for Christian students to other religious traditions...the beautiful thing about this introduction is its deep rootedness in Christian confession, conviction and practice--and its generosity of spirit toward other traditions...supplemented with helpful charts, tables and sidebars throughout, Cooper has authored a truly helpful book.
-Michael Lodahl,
Professor of Theology and World Religions,Point Loma Nazarene University

Christianity and World Religions is a special book. It is certainly information written for our times, and communicated in such a way that it will appeal both to those who have some understanding of the great religions of the world, as well as those who have very little understanding.
-Paul D. Kooistra,
Coordinator, PCA Mission to the World

Editorial Reviews

Christianity and World Religions is a clear and concise exposition of many of the world's prominent religions. Derek Cooper's discerning and winsome exploration also provides practical recommendations on how to engage adherents of these traditions. This volume will be welcomed by all Christians seeking to be more faithful, knowledgeable and effective witnesses in our increasingly multi-faith society.
Only the best-informed writers can summarize diverse religious traditions in a brief but insightful manner. That is precisely what Derek Cooper has done in this book. More than a factual survey, each chapter explores the founding stories of various world religions and the resulting beliefs and practices. While helping us communicate the truth of the gospel within our religiously diverse neighborhoods, the author treats each religion with care and its adherents with respect. Especially for its size, this book fills an important gap.”
