NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nov. 21, 2019 - PRLog -- Author Mathew P. John releases The Unknown God: A Journey with Jesus from East to West March 1, 2020 from David C Cook. The book takes readers on a spiritual journey through six major world religions, unraveling the hidden revelations of Jesus Christ embedded within their sacred scriptures.

In The Unknown God, John gives readers an accessible explanation of all the world religions and shows us how each one offers a glimpse, shadow, or preview of Christ. Exploring the redemptive revelations found outside the boundaries of Christian tradition, readers encounter a variety of symbols that point to the Jesus of the Bible. From Hindu avatars and Buddhist bodhisattvas to Sikh gurus, Muslim prophets and the Jewish messiah, the book considers how different religions attempt to answer the deep longing for a savior ingrained in the collective conscience of humanity.

"We live in the age of religious pluralism where all religions are considered the same and different paths lead to the same spiritual destination," notes John. "It is important for Christians to learn how to affirm Jesus Christ as the only way to God—while also paying due respect to people of other faiths and worldviews."

"Remember Acts, chapter 17 where [Paul] used the unknown god of the Greek as a Christ figure to invite them to the historical Jesus revealed in the Bible?" asks John in the book's promotional video at this link ( "Jesus is the historical culmination of the mythical architype hidden in other religions and other cultures. In other words, a myth that became truth."

Ideal for personal reading and small group studies, this book serves both as an introductory course on world religions and an inspirational book for personal spiritual growth. The Unknown God is also complimentary to The Mosaic Course, which is available online at ( and in print, The Mosaic Course: Study Guide.

With a compelling forward to the book written by Philip Yancey, a multiple Gold-Medallion winning author and Editor at Large for Christianity Today, the book is also receiving notable acclaim from pastors, authors, theologians and more, including: Dr. Amos Yong, Dean, School of Theology & School of Intercultural Studies, Fuller Theological Seminary; Rev.
