Bethany House Publishers recently sent me Richard Abanes new book Religions of the Stars and I’d like to share with each of you my thoughts regarding this book.
Richard Abanes is a Christian Apologist and that fact comes shining through time and time again in this 183 page book designed to teach you the difference between what your favorite “star” believes and what the Bible actually teaches. At the end of each chapter are tips on how you can witness to those caught in the New Age Movement, Mormonism, Buddhism, Scientology, Kabbalah and Magick.
There are plenty of interesting facts on how the spiritual beliefs of those in the entertainment business come through in what we see on the large or small screen. As a fan of the 70’s TV show Battlestar Galactica I had no idea this whole series was based on Mormonism (p61).
If you are interested in tabloid gossip or the latest dirt on your favorite star this book isn’t for you. If you are interested in an easily readable and highly educational Apologetics book then I strongly suggest you go out and get Religions of the Stars by Richard Abanes.
