Alien Gods on American Turf (Christianity Today Series) by Terry C Muck
used christian books
Until recently Terry Muck was executive editor of Christianity Today, the leading magazine for evangelical Christians in the western world. He is now a professor of comparative religion at the Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Texas. In 1976 he spent a year in Sri Lanka studying how closely Buddhist monks follow their ancient monastic rule. It was a brisk, rich cultural awakening and he “make a lot of good friends” as he told HINDUISM TODAY in an interview about his new book Alien Gods on American Turf. He returned to the US to find that Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam were establishing deep, widespread roots in what he assumed was essentially a Christian landscape.
