The God of the Bible and Other Gods: Is the Christian God Unique Among World Religions?


Kregel 1998

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.

Until we clearly understand the Bible and its teachings concerning the Person of God, we cannot answer the sometimes curious and many times defiant question of our secular, pluralistic culture: What makes the God of the Bible unique?

To that end, Dr. Lightner presents a three-part survey of:

  • Doctrine concerning the Bible itself—What does the Bible say about itself and what did Jesus believe about it?
  • The Bible's teaching concerning God—What does the Bible say about the Person of God and how can we know him?
  • The contrasts between the biblical view of God and the views held by major world religions and cults such as Mormonism, Islam, Jehovah's Witnesses, Hinduism, Buddhism, the new Age, the Way International, Baha'i Faith, and Christian Science.

Wait! This book and many others from Robert P. Lightner are available at a discount as part of the Robert P. Lightner and Aubrey Malphurs Collection!

Key Features

  • Contains a detailed three-part survey of the Bible and Biblical doctrine designed to help you understand the Person of God
  • Explains the contrasts between Biblical Christianity and other major world religions and cults
  • Completely interactive with your Logos library
  • All Scripture references appear on mouse-over

Praise for the Print Edition

In a day of encroaching spiritual darkness in which many competing truth claims are continually vying for supremacy, Dr. Lightner's superb book serves as a spotlight that focuses clearly on the one true God of the Bible. I recommend it highly.

—Ron Rhodes, President, Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries
