Book Description :

Do Jews, Muslims, and Christians worship the same God? Should Christians participate in Yoga or the martial arts? Christians today are constantly interacting with individuals, concepts, and practices from the world's religions. To be an effective witness and avoid embracing false ideas, it is essential for Christians to understand and evaluate the various religions from a biblical perspective. This book is designed to equip Christians for that task. Section one gives an overview of the major religions followed by a biblical critique. Section two presents an overview and biblical critique of popular religious ideas and practices such as alternative medicine, martial arts, and yoga. Section three addresses the challenges of religious pluralism and presents the author's defense for the unique and exclusive truth of Christianity. This is a needed resource for all who want to be an effective witness for Christ in a pluralistic world. "This is a handy, helpful handbook for witnessing to unbelievers from various and sundry religious perspectives." Dr. Norman Geisler, Christian scholar, apologist, author and founder of Southern Evangelical Seminary. "World Religions Through a Christian Worldview offers another excellent resource for learning about the beliefs of various religious groups and how they compare with the Bible. It will be helpful for Christians who want to understand and witness to members of these groups. Non-Christian readers will learn why Christianity is different from other religious claims." John Ankerberg, Author and Host of "The John Ankerberg Show" Patrick Zukeran earned a Master of Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary, a Doctorate of Ministry from Southern Evangelical Seminary and serves on staff with Probe Ministries. He is a researcher, author, radio talk show host, and a national and international speaker on apologetics. For more information visit: www.probe.org and www.evidenceandanswers.org.

Book Description :

"Religion is one of the most complex phenomena of world civilization, and several avenues are open for understanding the major faith traditions. We could attempt to have firsthand encounters with those religions by talking with their believers, visiting their sacred sites, or attending classes for converts. Alternatively, we could attempt a more arm's length approach by reading surveys of the various religions, some written by believers defending their faith, others by critics, and even more by academic historians or anthropologists. Yet another avenue is to examine the collected sacred texts revered by these religions themselves. This book takes this last approach. There are special benefits to exploring the world's religions through selections from their scriptures. In most cases the sacred texts are the oldest written documents in the tradition, and we gain a sense of immediate connection with these religions by studying the same documents that followers have been reading for millennia"--

Book Description :

"One of the most important decisions of any nation or armed group is when, if ever, to wage war or apply armed force. Such life-and-death judgements are informed by and sometimes determined by ethical principles and religious beliefs. World religions all provide guidelines on when armed force is justified. Are the permissions and prohibitions similar among religions? The present work seeks to map out the range of religious approaches to armed force, as expressed in the scriptures of the world's largest religions. Though the interpretations of religious scriptures vary considerably, the texts themselves provide a sense of each religion's approach to the important issue. Covering values from absolute pacifism, where armed force is not permissible under any circumstances, to strong militancy, where armed force is readily adopted, this research compiles, compares and contrasts important scriptural passages. Along with the associated DRDC reports, it presents a tour d'horizon, surveying scriptures from seven world religions. The ... reports analysed the three Abrahamic religions (Part I: Christianity, Islam and Judaism) and religions of Indic origin (Part II: Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism and Sikhism). The important scriptures from each religion were briefly introduced and the relevant verses were extracted, categorized and summarized. This makes possible, in each religion, the juxtaposition of passages justifying the use of force with passages suggesting the opposite. More broadly, a comparison is presented ..., in Part III, in both a descriptive and a schematic fashion to illustrate the differences between the scriptures within each religion and the differences between the religions. The religious approaches are compared by examining how they answer basic questions about war: Why? Who? When? Where? What? How? This variance is illustrated in this report by locating religious scriptures along a spectrum of force. long the spectrum of force."--DTIC abstract.
