If there ever were a time when Christians needed to build bridges with others, seeking peace in our world, loving our neighbors, and finding positive ways to share the gospel, it is now. In Christianity and World Religions, Revised Edition, Adam Hamilton deals with questions so many of us have about the four major world religions—Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism—and compares the beliefs of each with those of Christianity. In his trademark honest and open writing style, Hamilton helps answer questions such as: Why are there so many different religions? How should we view their beliefs? What is the fate of those who have these beliefs?
In session three titled Buddhism, Adam Hamilton gives an overview of the beginning of Buddhism, focusing on the life and teaching of Siddhartha Gautama, who became the Buddha. He describes the central ideas of Buddhism and what it has in common with Christianity, as well as how the two religions are different in important respects. The video includes an interview with a Buddhist leader who identifies the main teachings of Buddhism in a clear, accessible way.
