We are more alike than different

Faith: Five Religions and What They Share
by Dr. Richard Steckel and Michele Steckel

Religious misunderstandings tend to fuel conflicts. But different religions are often more alike than we think. This book takes a look at five major religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism. Each religion has different spiritual leaders, sacred texts, special clothing, sacred symbols, and places of worship. Yet they share many common elements in the use of incense, candles and water, and the practices of charity, prayer, and the golden rule.

The straightforward text and interesting photos make for a clear and accessible text.

Good for promoting tolerance and understanding.
