Publisher's Description

The Facts On series has sold more than 1.9 million copies and continues to provide information, facts, and foundational truths to help Christians understand their faith and their world.

With their extensive knowledge of comparative religion, the Facts On creators explore and compare the basic teachings and practices of the world's four major belief systems--

  • Islam
  • Hinduism
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity

The authors also discuss some less-widespread religions. Readers will discover that Christianity stands alone in the integrity of its divine revelation--the Bible--and in its consistency with history, the natural world, and human experience.

Rerelease with new cover and minor updates.

Why read The Facts on World Religions by John Ankerberg, John Weldon, and Dillon Burroughs? Well, what do you do when your daughter brings home her new boyfriend who’s a Buddhist? Or how about when your new neighbor turns out to be a practicing Hindu? Or your Sunday school class votes to study how to evangelize to Muslims? Or you want to preach a sermon on comparative religions and you need a refresher course? That’s why you might need The Facts on World Religions. This pocket-sized book examines the four major religions that boast the majority of followers in the world today: Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism.

The book is divided into five easy-to-read sections. Each of the first four sections takes a look at one religion by asking four questions. The questions cover: the basic beliefs; the religion’s origin; the credibility of the founder; and the reliability of the religion’s scriptures. The final section deals with several issues in comparative religion. The structure of the book makes it very easy to compare the various facets of one religion to another, to study only one aspect of all four religions at a time, or to focus in on just one of the four religions. The credentials of the authors include more than 80 other titles, reputations for being experts in the area of comparative religions, and a multitude of seminary and divinity degrees.

The information in this book is not meant to be exhaustive, but rather a snapshot of the four most widespread religions of our day. Its small size will appeal to anyone looking for a book on comparative religions. Its valuable information will appeal to pastors, Sunday school teachers, lay leaders, those preparing for a missions trip, and the general church population--anyone looking for solid facts on Islam, Hinduism, or Buddhism. As 2 Timothy 4:2 tells us, we must be read in order to, “Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction.“ We fall far short when we take our religion to our friends, neighbors and co-workers of other faiths, without having an understanding of theirs. This will be a book you will turn to time and again. – Nikki Studebaker Barcus, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
