Product Description

Christians live their faith more than ever in a pluralistic religious context. How should a Christian respond to the complex spiritual alternatives available today? Are all religions the same? Does the New Age fulfill the second coming of Jesus? Is Sun Myung Moon sinless? Is Islam a religion of peace? Is Mormonism true? Is Scientology a religion? How does the Dalai Lama view Jesus? Do witches worship Satan? Is the pope infallible? These and other crucial issues are examined in Nelson’s Illustrated Guide to Religions.

Nelson's Illustrated Guide to Religions covers more than 200 religions, sects, and cults, most of them ones the reader might encounter on any given day.

Key features include:
• Historical information on each major religion with detailed timelines
• Profiles of each group’s primary leaders
• An inventory of key principles and beliefs of each religion
• An analysis and critique of religions from a Christian perspective
• Opinion and commentary on the controversial issues related to specific religious groups
• Recommended resources— bibliographic information and extensive Internet sources for further study
• New groups explored—including The Lord Is Our Righteousness Church and the Sold-Out Discipling Movement
• Ten Tests for Truth in Religions—a set of multifaceted tests that Christians should apply when approaching the faith traditions of others—and their own faith

In addition to basic information, the reader has access to critical analysis of the controversies that arise in the debates about various religious groups and leaders. The author addresses the new evangelical-Mormon dialogue, the Emergent Church controversy, Local Church debates, Catholic-Evangelical tensions, the integrity of Seventh-day Adventism, the crimes of David Koresh, controversies over Muhammad, the extent of satanic ritual abuse, and much more.
