Introduction to Hinduism from

The Universe Next Door: A Basic Worldview Catalog, 5th EditionI have always been an advocate of educating oneself about other world religions. When I was doing my undergrad I had the priviledge of taking a few philosophy courses that included surveying and investigating culture through world religions. A helpful book on the subject The Universe Next Door: A Basic Worldview Catalog, 5th Edition by James W. Sire also helps evaluate other world religions through an unashamed Christian lens.

If you ever interact with other world religions, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, or Judaism, you know that it is beneficial to at least understand their faith and know the talking points. It is hard to win the respect of other in conversation if you have not at least considered or possess knowledge of their faith. has published a course on the topic of Hinduism at their website.

From Dr. Timothy Tennet the website describes his course as an,
"In-depth survey of philosophical and popular Hinduism’s historical and theological themes. Exposure to current strategies being used to bring the gospel to Hindus and how Christian theology is being formulated in the Indian context."
