The Facts On series has sold more than 1.9 million copies and continues to provide information, facts, and foundational truths to help Christians understand their faith and their world.

With their extensive knowledge of comparative religion, the Facts On creators explore and compare the basic teachings and practices of the world’s four major belief systems—

  • Islam
  • Hinduism
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity

The authors also discuss some less–widespread religions. Readers will discover that Christianity stands alone in the integrity of its divine revelation—the Bible—and in its consistency with history, the natural world, and human experience.

Rerelease with new cover and minor updates.
