Please note: This DVD seems particularly timely because of the controversy about how to treat American Muslims in the current election.

This video is the best thing I've seen on world religions in America! Not only does it include the top scholars I'm aware of in the field but it reveals the healing and unifying side of each of the faiths already present in our land and our history. Even though Christ must always be unique and central to us as Christians, there may just be a path to unity in the world religious realm that I hardly thought possible.

This dvd is the final of three and with the earlier two I imagine we'd have a fantastic Adult Ed. resource for many of our churches.There are already study guides developed. One of the key authors is an almost retired professor from Gordon Conwell, so I imagine even the evangelicals among us might be satisfied! And what could be more timely in our "trumped up" times?

Truth be told, I haven't watched the entire series because our LTS library only has the third of three. (So I haven't watched the one on Christianity and Islam.)
