Is this a "love it or hate it" book? Let's look at some of the negative reviewers assertions.
True, the writers ARE biased. They are Christians comparing other beliefs to Christianity. There are "non-judgmental" books on world religions out there, if you like. This book isn't one of them, nor need it be. A bias does not mean what they are saying is wrong, by the way. A "bias" is not necessarily or automatically a bad thing.
Some say the book contains errors and so is untrustworthy. In Autumn 2002, most news outlets reported that in 200 years, there would no more blondes; it was reported without question. But for this to occur ALL blondes would either have to choose to or be forced to mate only with dark hair partners. The likelihood of this happening? Zero.
Soon, the extinct blonde claim was found to be a hoax, which, strangely, did not get the coverage of the hoax itself. One assumes the reviewers who were so outraged by errors in FFOFT were canceling subscriptions left and right: daily paper, Time, Newsweek, US News, Foxnews, CNN. Why stop there? There are errors everywhere. Bye-bye to college text books. Adios to the encyclopedias. And forget user manuals.
Does the book espouse "hate," as one reviewer said? No, but some people are threatened by anything they don't agree with. That doesn't make it hateful. Here's an example of what I consider hateful speech. On 19 November 2002, this news item was on Worldnetdaily.com, "Sheik Abu Hamza, with London's Finsbury Park mosque, tells an audience that non-believers should be killed or sold into slavery `If a kafir person (non-believer) goes in a Muslim country, he is like a cow, anybody can take him. That is the Islamic law. If a kafir is walking by and you catch him, he's booty, you can sell him in the market.

This is one of my favorite books. I keep referring back to it over and over, such as when I encounter people of various religious back grounds. It is a great example of how many religions conflict with the bible. It gives a brief synopsis of the history of each major religion and gets right to the point.

If you want a quick overview of cults and false religions this book is a must read. Information that you may have never heard of that you need to know. Written for easy and quick reading. Sent one to my father-in-law to help him answer his questions.

You do not need to be a Christian to appreaciate this book. I have read this book so many times over the past 15 years that it has literally fallen apart. I am so glad I have it on my kindle. It is an excellent book on Christian Apologetics and a real eye-opener. You will be amazed and shocked at what you DO NOT KNOW about these religions! After much research,I believe this book to be accurate and unbiased.

A very good and to the point overview of all the different religions and cults that are out there. This book keeps people informed of the different doctrines from various religions and how do they compare to Christianity. Definitely, a book everyone should have to know what you believe and why.

Very good book -- It covers all of the major religions. It gives succinct analyses -- revealing the essence of the particular school of thought. It was objective and a good review.

Format: Paperback
I obtained this book a few years ago as a gift. If you're looking for a beginning apologetics book, this is not the one. There are many others out there that are well researched, straightforward, and actually contain "facts".
I'm sure it sounds all good and dandy to those out there who aren't well versed in such matters, but it truly is poor scholarship.
The error that angered me; the one that made me most upset, was their charactarization of the roman catholic church. For example, they clam that "In the cathedral of Quito, the largest Catholic Church in Equador, you will see in the center of the alter a crucifix with Marry hanging on the cross, shedding her blood for your sins. Mary, not Jesus!"
It's not mary who is being crucified there, lol, in place of christ. the statue is of a woman saint, who was crucified later for her faith in christ. ...
This kind of error. This basic kind of error, really shows you how poor their scholarship really is.

This will give you a good general overview on other religions in comparison to Christianity. I was surprised on some of these facts and gained a better understanding.
