Publisher's Description

Keys to understanding our shrinking world



A generation ago almost everyone a Christian encountered went to church--or at least knew he or she should. Today, with the world at America's doorstep, evangelical Christians more than ever need to understand their neighbors and their changing beliefs.



The Compact Guide to World Religions is a complete, easy-to-use handbook of the origins, basic beliefs, and evangelistic challenges and opportunities of the world's major religions in clear, easy-to-use chapters and charts.

    This is a very good book about many other religions. It gives you much information about each religion and then tells you the best way to reach a person in that particular religion for Christ. I only wish it would have included Jehova Witnesses.

    A great resource as it addresses many various world-views/religions and does so in a very practical fashion. Each chapter is only about 10 pages or so long. Within each chapter you get the background, major tenants, and perhaps other minor facts about each religion. Then there is another section dedicated to either objections to the Christian by the respective view and then tips in how to discuss with a person from the respective view.

    Definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in World Religions or even wants some tips on how to approach someone who is an adherent of another world-view.
