A compelling book by Mike Shreve.
IN SEARCH OF THE TRUE LIGHT is an in-depth comparison of over 20 religions. It also chronicles Mike Shreve’s spiritual journey out of yoga and far eastern mysticism into an encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. Most importantly, it offers a loving, biblical response to many far eastern and new age doctrines like: reincarnation, the divinity of man and endless cycles of the universe, gently guiding the reader into the revelation of the True Light.
This book is an excellent resource for BOTH Christians and those who do not yet embrace the Christian worldview. Give it to your friends who are not yet believers in Jesus. They will receive it as a loving and respectful presentation of the biblical point of view.
The exact chapter outline is as follows:
Part 1: The Quest of Every Heart (a celebration of the similarities and commonalities found in various religions of the world)
Part 2: Worldviews Contrasted (the beliefs of over 20 religions are compared in seven main doctrinal areas, like: The Origin and Nature of the Universe, the Nature of God, the Origin and Nature of Man, etc.)
Part 3: Monumental Moments (Mike Shreve’s personal story, how he was a teacher of Kundalini Yoga at four universities until an encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ radically changed his worldview)
Part 4: Striking the Touchstone (30 questions and answers presenting the biblical response to certain concepts Mike Shreve once embraced as a yoga teacher, like: reincarnation, karma, the divinity of man, universal cycles, and Ultimate Reality being an impersonal cosmic energy)
Part 5: Identifying the True Light (revealing the answer to man’s quest for enlightenment and spiritual fulfillment)
This book is very helpful to Christians who want to understand how to communicate their faith to those who are followers of other religious paths. It also makes a perfect gift for those who are searching through the New Age Movement or Far Eastern religions to find the truth. It presents the Gospel in a very loving and gentle way.
