Searching for something to believe in is a part of every spiritual journey. That path can have forks in the road, leading to different answers. In this book, “Which God Should I Choose?” author Ben Kniskern offers an overview of the major theological and philosophical movements in the world, presenting to readers the identifying aspects of each one and how they compare to Bible-based religion.
“I’m hoping that people who are searching for the real God will find their way to Him through the information contained on these pages, and that those who have already found the real God will be armed and encouraged by it,” states the author. “This book illuminates the truth—using established facts—behind the major religions of today as well as numerous cults and their narcissistic leaders.”
The opening chapter acknowledges that the author is sharing information to consider, not trying to make a decision for the person.
The author presents the facts of cults and Eastern religions without being dramatic. The author shows that the only way to prevent becoming involved in a cult is by being purposeful about one’s own personal search for God. The author gives readers reasons to do this and a way to start. It discusses three common denominators in false religions.
Over the past eighteen years, Ben Kniskern has spent time as a Christian school teacher, teen and adult Sunday school teacher, Awana T&T leader, Word of Life teen club leader, church guest speaker and author. Since 2001, the author has been a summer volunteer at the Word of Life Family Campground in Pottersville, New York. His next title “Should I Get My Baby Baptized?” will be published later this year.
Reviewers on Amazon give the book four stars.
DaRev says “This book is well researched and very informative. The links shown by the author between several different religions and cults serve as a warning sign to how we should be careful in making our own spiritual choices. I would recommend "Which God Should I Choose" to people who are searching for their faith, questioning their faith, or simply curious about religious belief systems, their origins, and the issues they present.”
PAAG writes “This book gives an honest overview of the religions to direct people who are searching for the true God where to find Him. The author injects humor through several of his personal experiences he describes in the book. This is a good book for anyone searching for God and also those who already know the true God and would like to grow closer to Him.”
