Exploring the Uncertainties of Religious Choices Jul 4, 2008
John Ankerberg and Dillon Burroughs collaborate again in this new addition to the Contender Bible Series. "How is Christianity Different from Other Religions?" provides curriculum for six sessions of small group study or for individual exploration.
Each session contains topics that address questions frequently asked by Christian believers to many complex questions they may be facing, as well as skeptics or those seeking spiritual truth or contemplating what it means to become a follower of Jesus Christ.
Each session includes a segment of introductory material, non threatening opinion questions for discussion, a time transitioning to a time for communicating personal feelings, which leads to a time of personal application, consideration, and quotations from diverse perspectives and well known sources.
I especially enjoyed the contemporary parallels and illustrations used in the "Getting Started" segment of each lesson. The "Talk About It" and "Here's What I'm Thinking" discussion questions have a natural progression that offers the reader an opportunity for an open viewpoint and an opportunity to learn.
An additional resource list and endnotes provide material for further study and reference. The appendix provides help on "How to Begin a Personal Relationship with God" and an excellent article entitled "Praying for Those Who Do Not Believe."
Helpful charts provide a quick visual comparison of World Religions by size, and a brief description of their main tenets, and a comparison of Jesus in Islam and Christianity.
This is a book designed for group study, practical for individual exploration, an invaluable resource for those seeking answers to: "How is Christianity Different from Other Religions?"
