Publisher's Summary

All religions and worldviews seek to answer the fundamental questions of human existence: Why am I here? What does it mean to be human? Why is there evil in the world, and how do we deal with it? But not every worldview places equal emphasis on each issue. The main worldviews each tend to stress a different central question.
Secular humanism focuses on: What is the inherent value of human beings? Pantheism emphasizes: How do we escape suffering? Islam's main concern is: How is God great? Abdu Murray digs deeply into these three representatives of major worldviews of our day: atheism, pantheism, and theism. This lawyer and former Muslim brings compassion, understanding, and clarity to his analysis, comparing the answers of each view to the central message of Christianity.

Insightful book...

Great book! Abdu gives fair treatment to unpacking different worldviews, as well as unveiling the natural outworkings of those root belief systems. Defining each belief system's "Grand Central Question" about life and reality, Abdu not only peels back the layers of "why we think what we think", but drives us towards questions that will help us determine whether our paradigm of thought is logical, meaningful, and coherent. I would recommend this book to everyone and feel it would be a great conversation starter, even if you don't agree with Murray's premises and conclusions.
