4.0 out of 5 stars A useful summary for Christians, 4 Feb. 2003
Revd Michael Green has been a prolific and respected Christian writer for 30 years or more. His latest book usefully summarises the reasons why the very common view that "all religions lead to God" cannot be true. The author found that this view was widespread whilst talking to people in a hospital ward in England last year. He also found that people who held this view were ignorant of the religions' claims. So he felt compelled to explain, as briefly as possible, what the world's religions claim and how they cannot lead us to God. He points out irreconcilable contradictions between them and argues convincingly that no adherent of any of them would hold the "all religions lead to God" view at the expense of his own. His conclusion that no religions lead to God, not even Christianity, may surprise some readers. The only path to God, he argues, is through personal encounter with Jesus Christ himself. While relisions are man-made constructs which attempt (without possibility of success) to lead man to God, Jesus was unique in coming down to us and rescuing us in our helplessness. But I have already given my copy to an adherent of yoga who is taught that all religions lead to God. This summary is therefore from memory and does not do the book justice. Read it for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, sensible discussion, 6 Sept. 2003
Michael Green has written another helpful book that will be very useful to people asking questions about Christianity. It is so good, it is worth buying a few copies so that you can have one available to give away when you are talking about the gospel with friends.
He clears up many popular misconceptions such as
1. It doesn't matter what you believe, as long as you are sincere
2. All religions are pretty much the same
3. All religions lead to God
4. Jesus is only one of many great religious leaders
In the last few chapters, he shows that Jesus is unique because He is the only one who
* claimed to be able to show us what God is like
* claimed to be able to deal radically with human wickedness
* came back to life, showing that his promises were true
* promised to live within us and help us to live satisfying lives which are pleasing to God
I am not happy with Green's enthusiastic endorsement of the Alpha course, but with this caveat, I heartily recommend this book as a terrific source for people thinking about religion and people who are seeking to introduce their friends to Christ.
