Quick Tutorial On World Religions

Understanding World Religions in 15 Minutes a Day, Garry R.  Morgan, 978-0-7642-1003-7

This is truly a quick and easy book to read and understand.  Garry Morgan has compiled a group of the major world religions, many of their offshoots, along with lessor known religions.  Each is religion’s beliefs are stated matter-of-factly.  Although this is published by a Christian publisher, the purpose of this book is not to compare each religion with Christianity.  The book just gives you the basic facts of each religion without any judgment call.  It lets you learn so you can better understand where friends and neighbors stand in their differing religions.  I was going to skip the first few chapters dealing with Christianity, but I am glad that I didn’t.  I gained some useful information from them.

This is a great source to give you an introduction into world religions and a jumping off place to study further.  For further study I would investigate resources that compare the teachings of Islam, Mormonism, etc., with the Word of God.

I received this book free of charge from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
