  • Looking to makes sense of where Christianity fits amongst a world of faiths?
  • This insightful dialogue between the world's take take a unique approach to comparative religion
  • Perfect for finding a way to articulate the relationship between faiths
How do we make sense of the world's different religions?

In today's globalized society, religion is deeply intertwined with every issue we see on the news. But talking about multiple religions can be contentious. Are different faiths compatible somehow? And how can we know whether one religion is more true than another?

In this creative thought experiment, Peter Kreeft invites us to encounter dialogues on the world's great faiths. His characters Thomas Keptic and Bea Lever are students in Professor Fesser's course on world religions, and the three explore the content and distinctive claims of each. Together they probe the plausibility of major religions, from Hinduism and Buddhism to Christianity and Islam. Along the way they explore how religions might relate to each other and to what extent exclusivism or inclusivism might make sense.

Ultimately Kreeft gives us helpful tools for thinking fairly and critically about competing religious beliefs. If the religions are different kinds of music, do they together make harmony or cacophony? Decide for yourself.

Between One Faith and Another by Peter Kreeft was published by InterVarsity Press in October 2017. The ISBN for Between One Faith and Another is 9780830845101.
