Product Description

Do we as Latter-day Saint Christians really need to know anything about other faiths? Do we not know all we need to know.

Sometimes in our ignorance of the true beliefs of our neighbors, we create our own skewed version of other faiths. If we are to be a world church, we need to understand and appreciate all the good that God has given to persons beyond the Latter-day Saint pale and to represent it accurately.

President George Albert Smith said to persons of other faiths:

We have come here as your brethren...and to say to you: "Keep all the good that you have, and let us bring to you more good, in order that you may be happier and in order that you may be prepared to enter into the presence of our Heavenly Father."

This book attempts to show the good that God has placed among his children and upon which the Restoration may build to bring more good. It is written in the spirit of seeking to appreciate all the good that each religion brings. At the same time, this book seeks to show what makes each religious tradition unique.

I love this book! It gives me a chance to pause and see my brothers and sisters of different faiths through new eyes. We have a loving Father in Heaven and this gave me a chance to think of how he shows his love to all of his children. I also was able to think of my own faith with new insight. I will make sure my children read this before they leave on missions so they can arrive with a loving understanding of those they go to serve.
