About the Book

Searching for Spirituality is an introductory course on forty of the world’s most practiced or most misunderstood religions. Originally born out of author Robyn Lebron’s efforts to create a Christian education course for her husband’s congregation, this easy-to-follow reference guide to international religious beliefs is designed to reduce the fear and skepticism that often comes when we encounter belief systems different than our own, with the ultimate goal of promoting peace and spiritual unity throughout the world. Covering a broad array of different faiths, from mainstream Christian denominations to Buddhism to Islam, Searching for Spiritual Unity breaks down each religion into eleven categories to allow for easy comparative discussions: history, doctrine, God or gods, the role of Jesus Christ, worship practices, infant baptism or blessing, confirmation or initiation, marriage, death and afterlife, judgment, and any special doctrines. Also included are pages for taking notes and comparison charts that can be used as a quick “at a glance” reference. Did you know that … • pagan beliefs almost line up perfectly with Christian concepts? • voodoo dolls are not commonly used by those who practice Voodoo? • Muslims believe in Jesus Christ’s mission? • the fastest growing religion today is also one of the youngest? Take the challenge to educate yourself, and replace skepticism and fear with peace and understanding.
