What Every Christian Should Know About Eastern Religions, But Probably Doesn’t
by Paul Alan Laughlin
Getting Oriented leads readers on an adventurous trek to discover and unlock the treasures of Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism. Paul Alan Laughlin sketches out an alternative, enlightened version of the Christian faith that draws upon the mystical dynamic of those great Eastern religions. With special attention to new ways of viewing God, humanity, Jesus, and the Bible, he offers a unique, compelling, and refreshing vision of Christianity for the Third Millennium.
