Reseña del editor
By providing a conceptual resume of a variety of widely practiced religions, this book enlightens the reader to both the diversity and the similarity of religious thought. The discussion of the Korn brings to light Muslim doctrine and its basic incompatability with those of many other religions. The progress from cult status to major religion is exemplified by the book's section on Mormons, Christian Scientists, Jehovah's Witnesses and Seventh Day Adventists. The question and title of the book, "Are Religions from God?" can be answered by each reader according to individual beliefs.
