Product Description

How Christianity's Unmatched Truth Answers the Deepest Longings of Every Human Heart

To the popular objection Aren't all religions basically the same? pastor and author Jared Wilson answers with an enthusiastic No! Christianity is not merely one among many similar options. It is categorically different--and it's these differences that make it so compelling.

In Unparalleled, Wilson holds up the teachings of the Bible to the clear light of day, revealing how Christianity rises above every other religion and philosophy of the world, and how its unmatched truth answers the deepest longings of every human heart. He provides an overview of Christianity's key claims showing how, from top to bottom, it is distinct from all other competing ideologies, religious and secular. Christians will come away with a fresh sense of the truth of their faith and nonbelievers will be compelled to consider the relevant claims of Christianity in a drastically new light.

    When I volunteered to review Unparallelled with the Baker Books reviewers program, I expected an interesting and informative read. Jared C Wilson has definitely delivered that.

    This book is a close examination of exactly what is so different about Christianity - specifically in comparison with Judaism and the Muslim faith, since those are the only other major, mono-theistic religions we encounter frequently in today's world.

    Challenging the assertions that we all worship the same God, bringing specific biblical context into the argument, and packaging it all in a set of interesting anecdotes, Wilson answers many of the questions that today's Christians face especially as we socialize with those who don't share our religion or faith.

    There are a few points Wilson seems to make that I don't entirely agree with, like implying that it is at all our place to decide whether someone else is truly worshiping in the right way or believing the right thing. However, I can see his perspective as a pastor and I can see past these minor disagreements between my belief and his in order to hear the point.

    This is an informative read, easy to get through, and Wilson does a great job of breaking up the potential monotony with personal stories to keep things interesting. It does read a little bit like a lecture in Christian belief, but that's not at all a bad thing. Overall, I'd recommend this book as a piece to use for consideration and conversation between believers who want to cement what it is they actually believe, and potentially even for parents who are struggling to teach their children precisely what makes protestant Christianity so different.

    Unique qualities are such that they are unlike any other entity and to me Christianity is just that in all respects. I have always believed this just not had the perfect examples of its uniqueness in order to explain this so fruitfully. However, Unparalleled: How Christianity's Uniqueness Makes It Compelling by Jared C. Wilson explains in a poetic way of the uniqueness to Christianity that I already believed to be. I loved his writing style so much for its clear yet unapologetic way of stating the beauty of this religion unlike the many others of our world. I could read and reread the message of Wilson that it wholeheartedly evident throughout the pages of this powerful book. I will say that I wish there were more, many more pages to this beauty because I could have spend a lot more time immersed in the brain of Wilson. This is a must read, highly recommended book. I received a copy for this review from Baker Books and all opinions are my own.
