I found this book to be one of the best and most simply written reference books for the spectrum of today's religions. I think that it can be very helpful in conquering the wide-spread ignorance that surrounds different religious beliefs. However, before buying this book, one must realize that it is writtin from a bible-believing christian standpoint and therefore the ideas could most certianly be considered bias. However, in reading the book i think that you will find most of the information to be very factual. There is very little opinion and what opinion can be found is well presented by McDowell and Stewart. This is a must-buy for Christians.

I have been searching for a book like this one for years and now I've found it. This book is quite enlightening. It quotes scripture but isn't too deep. The average lay person can understand. I have recommended this book to several friends. In a world with so many views, it's nice to find a source that is based in christianity, which compares and gives insight. Fantastic source of information.

I could not help but fight back a laugh at the thought that Reformed Christian Hellenists have taken it upon themselves to accuse other religions of occultism. Consideing Christianity's adoption of such pagan beliefs as Trinity, Divine Incarnation, Vicarious Atonement, Original Sin, and on and on and on, McDowell & Co. are virtually putting themselves on trial. This book serves as an excellent case study for psychology into the mind of pathological liar.
