visión de conjunto:Críticas This is a thoughtful introduction to the many meanings of God to the world's religions and the author even gives a moment's thought to the many ways to pray.--Christine WatsonSanta Cruz Sentinel (11/23/1990) A delightfully ecumenical book that answers questions straightforwardly and stresses the similarities of the world's religions in simple language. The color pictures are whimsical and sure to delight readers of all ages.--Washington Post How I wish I'd found this book ten years ago.... When I stumbled on this book two months ago I was thrilled. Critics might see it as a soft-core everything-and-the-kitchen-sick approach to discussing religion but that's exactly what I needed.-- (10/01/2008) Etan Boritzer provides young people with interesting thoughtful perspectives to these types of questions about God... Many spiritual questions are pondered and are presented in a way that shows that...ultimately we all believe in the same things.... A great addition to any home or school library. Highly Recommended.-- (04/13/2012) Reseña del editor WHAT IS GOD? is an eloquent introduction to the ideas behind God and religion and brings forward complex ideas in a way children will understand. It is written with a simple clarity and beautifully illustrated with just the right blend of seriousness and humor. WHAT IS GOD? compares different religions -- Christianity Islam Judaism Hinduism Buddhism -- and their holy books looks at misunderstandings and arguments among people of different religions and talks about praying as well as feeling connected to everything in the world. If you want to talk about spirituality with a child or introduce them to philosophy or religion or just help them to begin to centre themselves and their feelings about the world this book is a great beginning.
