Published by AuthorHouseBooks
This book compares the ideals, symbols and deliverers (saviors) of seven major non-Christian religions with the Christ of the New Testament. How do these religions relate to Christ and Christianity? The author shows that Christ is the only Savior who is a historical reality and not a myth. Verses from Scripture show who Christ is and how He overshadows the myths of deliverers in non-Christian religions. The ideals, symbols, and deliverers of each major religion, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism and Shinto, are discussed. The vision of this book is that people with contact with any of the seven major religions discussed may have Scripture to relate to the beliefs of these religions and be able to discuss meaningfully the significance of their beliefs with Christianity. The problem confronted in this book is Pluralism's claim that all religions lead to God. An alternative approach is presented, namely that Christ fulfills the ideals of any of the major religions presented. Throughout the discussion of each religion if the question of revelation. Would God give only revelation or many revelations for different cultures? The purpose of the book is not simply to compare religions. It is to show how the New Testament Christ fulfills any ideals or deliverer concepts in these non-Christian religions. The pattern of writing is to present material from each non-Christian religion and compare this with Christ as the more powerful, the incomparable, and only Savior of the world.

This is a good work. However, Jesus said freely we have have received, freely we should give. Also, for all to freely take the water of life. My question is did Jesus ever charge anyone for anything? No. Nor should we!
