Description
People don't want to learn about religions just because there are religions out there. People want to learn about religions because they know that religions have great answers to the big questions. Award-winning authors Rabbi Marc Gellman and Monsignor Thomas Hartman have produced a unique way of looking at the world's religions. Instead of isolating each religion in its own separate chapter, this book unites the religions by showing how each of them answers these universal questions: How should we live? What happens to us after we die? Why does bad stuff happen to good folks? How can we talk to God? With a refreshing combination of humor and sensitivity, a rabbi and priest show us how Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and the other great religions teach us to live. This wise and often thoughtprovoking book shows us that each religion has its own wisdom and its own wonderful stories. It also explains who works for God, why the world's religions are so different, and why some days of the year have become holy. How Do You Spell God? helps us appreciate religions from all over the world. It will also help us better understand our planet, our families, and ourselves.
