In this study, you'll take a look at what other world religions teach and compare each with Christianity. You'll also look at two prominent groups that claim to be Christan (Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons) to see how their doctrines compare with biblical Christian teaching. Then you'll have the chance to wrestle with the implications of a message that says all the outside groups are missing the crucial ingredient. In six discussions designed to get small groups thinking and interacting, each guide in the Tough Questions series deals frankly with objections commonly raised about Christianity. You'll engage in the kind of spirited dialog that shows the Christian faith can stand up to scrutiny.
