Comparative Religion (Illustrated) By J. Estlin Carpenter
eBook (ePub): $1.99
“Over the chancel-arch of the church at South Leigh, a few miles west of Oxford, is a fresco of the Last Judgment and the Resurrection, of the type well known in mediæval art. On the... More > adjoining south wall stands the stately figure of the archangel Michael. In his right hand he holds a pair of scales. In one scale is the figure of a soul in the attitude of prayer; beside it is Our Lady carrying a rosary. The other contains an ox-headed demon blowing a horn. This scale rises steadily, though another demon has climbed to the beam above to weigh it down, and a third from hell's mouth below endeavours to drag it towards the abyss. The same theme recurs in several other English churches; and it is carved over the portals of many French cathedrals, as at Notre Dame in Paris.”< Less

eBook (ePub): $2.99
The conception of religion presupposes, a, God as object; b, man as subject; c, the mutual relation existing between them. According to the various stages of development which men have reached,... More > religious belief manifests itself either in the form of a passive feeling of dependence, where the subject, not yet conscious of his independence, feels himself wholly overmastered by the deity, or the object of worship, as by a power outside of and opposed to himself; or, when the feeling of independence has awakened, in a one-sided elevation of the human, whereby man in worshiping a deity deifies himself. In the highest stage of religious development, the most entire feeling of dependence is united in religion with the strongest consciousness of personal independence. The first of these forms is exhibited in the fetich and nature-worship of the ancient nations; the second in Buddhism, and in the deification of the human, which reaches its full height among the Greeks.< Less

In Islam, Judaism, and Christianity the attributes of God are the same: omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent. Each religion stems from Abraham, which is why they are called the Abrahamic faiths.... More > They each stress a special relationship with God, recognize the importance of prophets, services are held in a Holy building (temple, mosque, cathedral (Roman Catholicism)) and prayer takes place in each building. Upon first glance, people might think that these religions are similar and that because they appear “similar enough,” they should not be opposed but should instead drop their differences and focus on their similarities to bring about “unity from diversity.” In this book, I have presented some very basic introduction to the Christian, Islam, and Jews (Abrahamic Religions) and discussed some similarities and differences between them.< Less
