Know Real from Counterfeit
World Religions and Cults is a 3-volume series of books, each divided into a subcategory. Volume 1 is a 425 page book that deals with counterfeits of Christianity. The religions discussed within its covers are: Roman Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Islam, Jehovah's Witnesses, Judaism, Mormonism, The Baha'i Faith, Deism, Satanism, Freemasonry, Zoroastrianism, Worldwide Church of the Creator (The Creativity Movement), and Moonies/The Unification Church.

This is more than a book series that discusses the differences between religions and the whys behind varying practices. Its basis is from a presuppositional apologetics stance; God's Word is the absolute authority. Hodge and Patterson detail the origins of religions and take on secular religions (in another volume). In the most basic of terms, World Religions and Cults is separating God's Word and Man's Word. The reader will discover what defines various world religions, lesser-known religions, cults, and philosophical systems. Understanding worldviews and the fact that everyone holds presuppositions is key to seeing viewpoints of others and testing everything based on God's Word.

Very Informative
This is the first book of a series of three. It allows you to compare so many of the various religions to a Biblical Christian worldview. It is a fantastic resource for both adults and for homeschool use. From a homeschool standpoint, it is probably best at a high school level. There are multiple authors and I feel like this gives a much more well-rounded viewpoint on the various religions. I think this is a must-read for Christians today. There is so much background and information on each religion and its origin, and the text is very, very thorough. It shows how some are related to Christianity and how they are different and where those changes happened and what they are. If you are using for homeschool, I highly recommend the teacher's guide as a companion.
