This work attempts to consider the chief apparent differences between a variety of world-views and value-systems to determine how real these differences are and where they can be shown to have much in common on which to build a culture worthy of humankind. Thus the humanistic philosophies of life prevalent in the West today, the mythological religions largely found in isolated parts of Australia, New Zealand, Africa, Siberia and the Americas, the emanation religions of the East (Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism), and the creation religions of the West (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) are all dealt with at some length in these pages. Since it is the task of Christian apologetics to disclose Jesus Christ as the Truth in which all truth, from whatever source it comes, can be honestly acknowledged and reconciled, this work is designed to help all those who seek a world- view and value-system by which they can live their lives to find everything they are looking for in Christ and in the Church which He founded.
