Publisher's Description

A Christian’s Guide to the World’s Most Prominent Religions

Meeting people from other religions is an incredible blessing and a unique challenge. As Christians, what do we need to know about their beliefs to effectively interact with them? And how can we share about Jesus with sensitivity for someone’s relationship to their current faith?

A compilation from some of today’s top religion scholars, The Popular Handbook of World Religions is a clear and insightful guide to understanding and conversing with followers of the world’s major belief systems. You will…
  • gain a balanced, nuanced comprehension of what followers of other religions believe, and see how those beliefs compare with those of Christianity
  • develop deeper respect for different cultures and appreciate their unique traditions and ideas
  • learn how to share about Christ with true compassion and a recognition of other people’s individuality and heritage
Featuring the writings of Dr. Douglas Groothuis, Dr. Paul Copan, Dr. Winfried Corduan, and more, The Popular Handbook of World Religions is designed to help you gain the wisdom you need to interact with people of other faiths, from atheism to Judaism, Buddhism to Islam, Jainism to Sikhism, and more.

"The Popular Handbook of World Religions is an excellent resource with a wealth of insight on an array of critical topics for anyone ministering cross-culturally.
