Product Description

The diversity of the world's religions has come to the West, but believers are often ill-equipped for any kind of serious engagement with non-Christians. In Encountering World Religions, professor and author Irving Hexham introduces all the world's major religious traditions in a brief and understandable way.

Hexham outlines key beliefs and practices in each religion, while also providing guidance on how to think critically about them from the standpoint of Christian theology. African, yogic, and Abrahamic traditions are all covered. Accessible and clear, Encountering World Religions will provide formal and lay students alike with a useful Christian introduction to the major faiths of our world.

Editorial Reviews

As a good teacher, Hexham is not afraid to offer the kind of opinion or insight that is bound to provoke discussion and debate. This book is the fruit of many years of trying to encourage university students to engage meaningfully with the study of religion. -- Gerald J. Pillay, vice-chancellor and rector, Liverpool Hope University

Hexham is well known to his many readers through his publications on religious studies, both as a general field of research, as well as represented in various movements, both local and worldwide. -- Gary R. Habermas, distinguished research professor and chair of the department of philosophy and theology, Liberty University

Hexham offers an introduction to the study of religions based on his years of teaching the subject, an impressive multicultural knowledge of various religious traditions. -- Larry Hurtado, emeritus professor of New Testament language, literature and theology, University of Edinburgh

Hexham's book is a resource that brings clarity to the vast world of religious beliefs. This needs to be on the bookshelf of every Christian leader. -- Rev. Dr. Carson Pue, Trinity Western University
