Being raised in Christian Science I decided to take a look at what Mr. Ridenour wrote about the religion I knew best. Unfortunately there were an incredible amount of inaccuracies regarding his impression of the doctrines of Christian Science. This obviously leads me to wonder what misinterpretations of other peoples' faiths he included in other sections. This is obviously a book written with an incredible amount of bias for an audience that shares his same bias and disinterest in understanding the beliefs of others. An unfortunate product that will likely create more misunderstanding and mistrust amongst people of different beliefs.
Very easy and understandable read. At the end of each faith/worldview/religion chapter there is a great "So What's the Difference" synopsis explaining how the various beliefs compare with the biblical Christian faith.
We used this text in a small group study and found it to be a great resource. It is up to date and led to good discussion and further study. It does not discuss Scientology which is in the news today. Would highly recommend it.
