Review 1 for Religions of the World, 6-DVD Set

Sunrise Baptist Church
I've been a professor of Comparative Religions. I found this series OK. Each section was a little long winded and would tend to loose the interest of the most congregations. The section on Protestant Christianity seemed a little better than the other sections. Hinduism left the viewer more confussed at the finish than when he began. It would fine in a church library.

Treatment of some of the religions is fair, but is not viewed from a Christian perspective at all. The treatment of Christianity itself is awful, while Islam looks inviting.
