Description

Probably the best single book available on the subject. A gem of its kind, concise, penetrating, easy to read and enormously informative.

So reviewers welcomed this thoroughly practical book by David Brown, who was Bishop of Guildford until his death in 1982. He taught for many years in Africa and the near East, and his studies of Islam have contributed much to mutual understanding between Christians and Muslims.

In this Study Guide he explores the relationship between the Creator and the creation as it is expressed in the religions of mankind. The chief purpose of the book is to describe religions at their face value, as part of the social and cultural context within which Christians live and work, not to criticize or evaluate them. In the last chapter, however, the author relates this discussion to the belief that in Christ, God intervened in our world in a unique and decisive way.

Material for the chapters on Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, Shintoism, Taoism, and the religions of the Ga in Ghana, the Maori, and Shamanism in Korea has been contributed by nationals of the areas concerned.
