Product Description:

Volume 3 includes an overview of secular and atheistic religions, Atheism, Agnosticism, Secular Humanism, Nazism, Scientology, Communism, Postmodernism, Epicureanism and Evolutionary Religions, Dualism and the Types of Religions, Christian Syncretism with Evolution and Other Belief Systems (Compromise), Religion of Naturalism, Materialism, Empiricism, and Afterlife (What must I do to be saved?).

Publisher Description:

This final book in the series focuses on the atheistic or humanistic type of religions. It would be one of the most valuable for the church in the Western World where anti-god and pro-evolution religions are beginning to explode, for it was written to refute those religions and show how they fail. Unlike most books on world religions, this title dives into the secular humanistic religions. The book starts with God's Word as the absolute authority. In doing so, God becomes our guide to refute false religions.

  • Humanistic religions are all around us and we need to be able to spot their tenets and oppose them instead of allowing them to subtly infiltrate our Christianity and undermine us from within
  • We need to know how to refute these humanistic religions
  • We need to know how to effectively present the gospel to people who have been deceived by humanistic religions
Category Description for World Religions and Cults:

There are so many religions and cults in the world. How do you know where to begin trying to understand them? An introduction written by Bodie Hodge and Ken Ham in Volume 1, explains the criteria used to determine whether a belief system is false - there are only two categories, God's and Not God's. Those that are not of God, are of man. The first three chapters of Volume 1 are about defending the Christian faith and an explanation of Biblical Christianity.

Each volume of this series is divided into chapters written by a broad range and variety of authors. Each chapter strives to give a brief history of that religion/cult and their basic beliefs. At the end of each chapter, a chart lists a summary of what is believed about God, Authority/Revelation, Man, Sin, Salvation, and Creation by that particular group. Belief systems are divided into categories, then placed in the appropriate book. The authors acknowledge that some of these could be in several categories, but they went with their best judgement. Volume 1 is Counterfeits of Christianity, Volume 2 is Moralistic, Mythical, and Mysticism Religions, and Volume 3 is Atheistic and Humanistic Religions.  

As a general overview of belief systems, these could be used as a reference for comparative religion - a reference for your home library. Written from conservative protestant perspectives, you may not agree with all the comments found in this series, and may be offended by some of the authors' views.

Invaluable information
As previously reviewed, World Religions and Cults is a 3 volume set. Volume 3 focuses on Atheistic and Humanistic Religions. Atheism, Agnosticism, Secular Humanism, Nazism, Scientology (Thetanism/Church of Scientology/Hubbardism), Communism, Postmodernism, Epicureanism and Evolutionary Religions, Dualism, Christian Syncretism with Evolution and other belief systems (compromise), Religion of Naturalism, Materialism, and Empiricisim each have their own chapters.

Several appendices at the end of Volume 3 offer invaluable additional information. Learn about the Bible versus other religious books, what a martyr is, if morality is possible for a Secularist, what the intelligent design movement is, how evolutionary humanism destroys, how to respond to Atheist propaganda and skeptics, and what Evolution (with a capital E) means. Most importantly, for those who need this question answered, "What must I do to be saved?" has its own chapter. What it all comes down to is knowing the Truth because your life (literally) depends on it.

Relevant for Modern Times
This is the third and final book of the series as of right now. It is so very relevant to modern society. It covers secular and Atheistic religions. This book really allows you to compare the various religions and viewpoints featured. It shows the contrasts between the religions and a Biblical Christian worldview. It is a fantastic resource for both adults and homeschool. From a homeschool standpoint, I will probably introduce this at a high school level. Throughout the text, 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, and the text is very, very thorough. If you are using for homeschool, I highly recommend the teacher's guide as a companion.
