Earlier today, I eluded to a little bit about our faith beliefs, so I thought it would be a good day to talk about a book I recently read. Understanding World Religions in 15 Minutes a Day, a new Bethany House book, gives readers a brief look into world religions and is a good way for readers to learn about faiths of those around them.
We live in a diverse world, and sometimes it seems like every person you meet is of a different religion. Garry P. Morgan gives insight into these religions in Understanding World Religions. In 15 minutes (or less), you can pick a chapter and learn about beliefs and practices of over 20 religions.
This book stuck out to me because it discussed Greg’s family’s faith, Baha’i, a faith I hadn’t really known much about before we began dating. Morgan also covers Christianity (and the differences between Catholics and Protestants), Islam, Mormonism, and more.
Personally, I liked the simple yet detailed way Morgan described religions. It gave me enough to understand where some people are coming from, but it also made me wonder about other points. I didn’t have to dig deeper into any religion unless I wanted to. Morgan’s goal was to be respectful and not opinionated, and I feel that he achieved that.
If you are interested in your own copy of this book, you can visit BethanyHouse.com (retails for $10.39) or an online book dealer. It’s a great refresher to world religion classes or a quick reference guide.
