HASH(0x93f96114) out of 5 stars A true gem of a book on the common bond shared by the Mormon and Baha'i Faiths 14 Mar. 2010
By Sean Rayshel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Commonalities: A Positive Look at Latter-day Saints from a Baha'i Perspective" sets the standard for books on comparative religion between the newest world religion, the Baha'i Faith, and other religious traditions. Van Neck coming from a Baha'i background treats the Mormon Church with the utmost respect and compassion. Like the book title suggests this book truly comes from a positive outlook in what these two Faith groups can find in common with eachother such as their core values, outlook on life , time of establishment in the mid 1800's, and the prophecies concerning the Return of Christ and God's Kingdom on Earth. Van Neck does point out the differences shared by both Faith groups, but it is done in a way that is factual and non-offensive. Baha'is from a Mormon background would appreciate this groundbreaking research as well as any Baha'i student of religious studies. Mormon friends please understand this research is coming from a Baha'i perspective, so a basic understanding of the Baha'i Faith would be suggested, otherwise this book illustrates how many Baha'is such as Van Neck (and myself) honor your great Faith, your founding Prophet Joseph Smith, and the genuine Spirit that animates The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

HASH(0x93f9636c) out of 5 stars The definitive text. 26 Dec. 2012
By Davie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Come at this book with two bookmarks. The first will mark your place in the reading and the second will keep pace in the "references." This is scholarship at its best. It is well presented, well organized, and well edited. The focus is on the positive effect both belief systems bring to the believers. The depth is stunning. The Family Responsibilities chapter (chapter 7) is an interesting comparison. Both belief systems acknowledge the rightful place of fathers, mothers, and children, and the responsibilities they share. The whole discussion reinforces the certain knowledge that there is only One God. Both reflect the light. Both honor the family. Sure. There are differences. Baha'i belief in the equality of men and women is strong while Mormons believe that the father is "the priesthood holder and has the duties of priesthood leadership." The similarities are stronger than the differences. It is often a matter of wording and tone. Commonalities is an even-handed look at both belief systems. Humanity gains with the proper understanding and respect other beliefs.

HASH(0x906cfef4) out of 5 stars A great resource 12 Mar. 2013
By Travellin' Suz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book shares what the Mormon LDS and the Baha'i Faith have in common in order to facilitate discussions on spiritual topics. An overview of the Mormon religious history and traditions are provided; and then it breaks down major discussion topics to illustrate the Mormon and Baha'i perspectives. The focus is on what these faiths have in common, hence the book's title.

This is probably the most thoroughly researched book I've ever read. However, if one isn't interested in detail, you can always read the chapters you are interested in. This is a well written resource that's easy to read and understand. I especially appreciated the unbiased treatment given to both religions. Overall this is a helpful book to learn about the Mormons.

HASH(0x93f96834) out of 5 stars Excellent! 12 Mar. 2012
By Mrs. Rodgers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Wow!" is the response I got when showing Commonalities to an LDS friend. Until that moment, I don't believe my friend fully appreciated how much we have in "common" in matters spiritual. Whether your goal is to learn more about LDS or the Bahai Faith, Commonalities is an excellent resource!

HASH(0x93f967d4) out of 5 stars Brilliant and captivating! 27 Mar. 2012
By Nitengale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Commonalities is by far one of my favorite pieces of literature. The Author, Serge Van Neck, beautifully captures and connects two of today's most recent Faiths. Combined with his talent and his wealth of knowledge in the field of Religion, Serge establishes within the reader a heart penetrating understanding of both Faiths in a unifying and unbiased light. I look forward to future publications from this Author.
