I received a complimentary copy of Garry R. Morgan’s Understanding World Religions in 15 Minutes a Day from Bethany House in exchange for my honest opinions and review. (Honestly, I am usually such a harsh critic of all Bethany House books that I am surprised that they keep sending me free copies of their books. That must speak volumes about the integrity of their PR department.) But I digress.
This latest title is a real winner in my opinion. It is shockingly neutral, fair-minded, and well researched. I learned a lot from reading it, especially the section on Zoroastrianism, which I had never heard about before. I’m surprised that Spell-Check even recognized it!
I think that even secular homeschooling families would appreciate this book, for eighth graders and above. Professor Morgan does really a nice job of covering the essential facts, without sounding biased. You could turn your teenager loose on this book, and not worry about him or her being converted.
Of course, if I was going to impose my own bias on this review, I would add that Professor Morgan might have chosen to mention John Wesley. 😉
