Christianity and World Religions: An Introduction to the World's Major Faiths
2 in stock
In this book, Derek Cooper examines the rival worldviews found in Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism, Judaism, Islam and irreligion. He engages these worldviews from a Christian perspective, first by showing how the biblical authors engaged other religions and then by surveying the way Christian theologians have done so.
There is a chapter on each religion, with each chapter in six parts:
(i) A creation story
(ii) The religion's historical origin
(iii) Its beliefs
(iv) Religious writings
(v) Worship practices
(vi) Christian reflections on the religion
"In a world where most of us increasingly live together with people of other faiths, Christians are largely ignorant of the history and content of some of the most important religions... Derek Cooper here supplies abundant information on the worldview of five major religions, and adds wise suggestions for interacting with their adherents. Ideal for classroom or small group study, the book is both very learned and yet also accessible to the non-expert."
