Book Review: "Religions of the Stars"

Author Richard Abanes delves into the different beliefs of the mega-stars of today in his work "Religions of the Stars." A Christian, Abanes compares the core values of religions such as Scientology, Buddhism, Mormonism and the occult to Christianity to illustrate the short-comings of non-Christian belief systems.

The chapters focus on one form of religion at a time and Abanes offers an in depth explanation of the core beliefs of each religion and the names of the stars who follow the specific set of beliefs. An eye-opening book, "Religions of the Stars" is a well-documented work written in an easy-to-read conversational style.

For a well-rounded education on the popular religions today and how they fall short when compared to the truths of Christianity, I highly suggest "Religions of the Stars" as an informative, entertaining read.
