Getting It, Then Getting Along

Getting It, Then Getting Along: Understanding the world's five major religions by [L. Reynolds Andiric]

Getting It, Then Getting Along: Understanding the world’s five major religions, is a thought-provoking book that explains the five major religions that are prevalent today. The author did extensive research on each of the religions, explaining different elements in each and how they came to be. The author informs without trying to make one religion appear better than the other. The author is objective in her discussions and engages the reader throughout the text with a friendly writing style, ensuring that the reader understands one concept before going to the next.

The five major religions discussed in the book are Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. When reading about each of the mentioned religions, you realize that all believers are similar in one way or another. Every believer has faith in and trusts a supreme being. In her book, L. Reynolds Andiric insists on acknowledging each other’s beliefs and not being judgmental. L. Reynolds Andiric is an excellent author not just because of how she explained the subject in her book, but also for the periodic reminders about being gracious to all.

The topics are eye-opening and interesting for any reader who is curious about certain religions but has not had the chance to interact with people that believe in different faiths. The author clearly highlights the similarities between the religions while also taking note of the differences. There is beauty in diversity and the author makes this clear at the end of each chapter. You will learn a lot, not just about religion, but also how different societies live. L. Reynolds Andiric also includes her personal stories and experiences in the discussions. I enjoyed reading the personal stories as I found them to be interesting, and I felt that they made me understand better where the author came from.

Getting It, Then Getting Along will appeal to readers interest in religious philosophy. A the end of the book, the reader understands why followers of different religions function the way they do and why spirituality is important for many. This book is not just for believers. This book is for anyone who has questions about the five religions discussed in the book and faith in general. Is the God worshipped by Christians any different from that worshiped by Muslims of Indians? Can people from different religions co-exist peacefully? How should the world deal with religious extremism? These and more questions are answered in this engaging and illuminating book.
