All religions and worldviews seek to answer the fundamental questions of human existence: Why am I here? What does it mean to be human? Why is there evil in the world and how do we deal with it? But not every worldview places equal emphasis on each issue. The main worldviews each tend to stress a different central question.Secular humanism focuses on: What is the inherent value of human beings?Pantheism emphasizes: How do we escape suffering?Islam's main concern is: How is God great? Abdu Murray digs deeply into these three representatives of major worldviews of our day: atheism, pantheism and theism. This lawyer and former Muslim brings compassion, understanding and clarity to his analysis, comparing the answers of each view to the central message of Christianity.
A former Muslim, Abdu H. Murray has spoken internationally and on TV shows on the Inspiration Network. He is co-founder of Altheia International, an outreach organization, and is active with a number of organizations and ministries, including the Evangelical Philosophical Society, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, and Campus Crusade for Christ. Murray practices law in the Detroit area. He is the author Apocalypse Later: Why the Gospel of Peace Must Trump the Politics of Prophecy in the Middle East .
