World Religions in Seven Sentences A Small Introduction to a Vast Topic

by Doug Groothuis


Understanding the beliefs and practices of other faiths is essential not just to the task of interreligious dialogue, but also to grasping one’s own faith.

In this brief volume in IVP Academic’s Introductions in Seven Sentences, philosopher Douglas Groothuis creatively uses a single sentence representing each of several world religions as a way to open readers to their depth and complexity, including:

  • Atheism: “God Is Dead.”
  • Judaism: “I Am Who I Am.”
  • Hinduism: “You Are That.”
  • Buddhism: “Life Is Suffering.”
  • Daoism: “The Dao That Can Be Spoken Is Not the Eternal Dao.”
  • Christianity: “Before Abraham Was, I Am.”
  • Islam: “There Is One God, and Mohammad Is His Prophet.”

With a sympathetic but not uncritical approach, Groothuis welcomes readers to a vital and global conversation.

The accessible primers in the Introductions in Seven Sentences collection act as brief introductions to an academic field, with simple organization: seven key sentences that give readers a birds-eye view of an entire discipline.

Mama Bear Apologetics Guide to Sexuality Empowering Your Kids to Understand and Live Out God’s Design

by Hillary Morgan Ferrer 

Raise Them to Value God’s Design

Starting at a young age, kids are being fed damaging misinformation about sexuality, gender identity, and human biology. As a parent, it’s up to you to help your children understand God’s truth about these integral concepts in the face of the candy-coated lies that saturate today’s world.

In the footsteps of the bestselling Mama Bear Apologetics comes this invaluable guide to training your kids to know and respect God’s design in a world that has rejected it. This book will equip you to…

  • understand God’s design for gender, sex, marriage, and family as a beautiful portrait that reveals the nature of God Himself
  • identify the tactics being used to trick children into adopting an unbiblical view of sexuality under the guise of Christian-sounding words like love, identity, tolerance, and justice
  • teach your kids to treat those who hold different beliefs with gentle, Christlike compassion without compromising biblical values

As society continues to blur the lines of what is good, true, and acceptable, God’s standards remain clear and unchanging. This book will give you the wisdom to confidently raise your children to understand sex and gender through a biblical lens.


Responding to the Mormon Missionary Message

by Corey Miller and Ross Anderson 

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) has 90,000 missionaries in the field, seeking to convert members of Christian churches. Because the lessons these missionaries teach represent the core claims of Mormonism, this book interacts with those lessons from a biblical perspective.

Written and edited by former Mormons who are now Christians, it includes insider knowledge, personal stories, cultural insights, evangelistic wisdom, and best practices from former LDS missionaries themselves, to help Christians fortify their own faith while learning how to share their faith wisely and effectively with Latter-day Saints
