New Bible study to begin at Lower UMC

“Christianity and World Religions: Wrestling With Questions People Ask” is a video-based small-group study and outreach program that explores four major world religions—Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Judaism—and compares the beliefs of each with those of Christianity.

This six-week study deals openly and honestly with questions people ask about other religions, including why we should believe the claims of Christianity over those of other faiths.

As part of the study, author and presenter Adam Hamilton interviews a religious leader from each tradition. He treats the world religions with great respect, recognizing the unique contributions of each.

In examining these major world religions and the beliefs of their followers, Rev. Hamilton urges us as Christians to build bridges with others so that we might grow in our faith, seek peace in our world, love our neighbor, and find positive ways to share the gospel.

The study will meet at Lower United Methodist Church, Hartfield. Those attending have a choice between two sessions: Mondays, 2:30-4 p.m., or Tuesdays, 7-8:30 p.m., beginning on March 22. The participant’s book will be available at the first session for $12. For more information and/or to sign up, contact Carolyn Schott at 776-6004 or .
