Have you ever thought about the many different religions of this world (Scientology, Buddhism, Islam, Astrology, etc.) and wondered how they are different from Christianity and what draws people to them?The discussion of world religions is practically nonexistent in many Christian circles today. However, teens are confronted with non-Christian or even anti-Christian beliefs every day, in ways they may not even be aware of. "Why So Many Gods?", which was reviewed by experts in Christian theology, educates teens on more than 100 world religions, secular world views, cults, and occult practices and helps them understand how each belief is similar to, or different from, Christianity. The basic beliefs, short history, and important aspects of each religion are presented in a light, easy-to-understand, teen-friendly format.
