Understanding World Religions in 15 minutes a Day by Garry R. Morgan


Author Garry R. Morgan has put together a good resource for covering the main points of different religions.  Understanding World Religions in 15 minutes a Day presents only the facts about each religion and does not have a biased viewpoint.  There are 40 chapters in the book.  Each chapter is about 4 pages long and really does only take 15 minutes or less to read.

The religions that are covered in this book are as follows:

Roman Catholic Christianity                
Eastern Orthodox Christianity
Protestant Christianity                         
Evangelical Christianity
Animism and Folk Religions                
Native American Religions
African Traditional Religions               
Judaism
Zoroastrianism                                      
Islam
The Nation of Islam                              
Baha'i
Hinduism                                              
Janism
Sikhism                                                
Theravada Buddhism
Mahayana Buddism                             
Tibetan Buddism
Confucianism                                       
Taoism
Shinto                                                   
Secular Humanism
Cults, "Isms" and Contemporary Religious Movements                            
The Unitarian-Universalist Association
The Unity School of Christianity         
The Unification Church
Christian Science                                  
Scientology
Mormonism                                          
Jehovah's Witnesses
Neopagan Religions                             
New Age Religions
Transcendental Meditation

I think this book would be a great resource to have on hand when dealing with others about different religions.  I know for me I often can get them confused or forget what the main facets of a particular religion are.  Morgan's book is concise and factual.  I would recommend this book for anyone who would like a quick resource on hand.

**I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
