This chapter explains the objective of this book, which is to present a comparative analysis of religious views on destiny and human nature. This book explores the differing views of Advaita Vedanta, the Vaishanava Hinduism, the Buddhist, the Abrahamic belief, and the materialistic belief that people are complex material organisms. It aims to formulate a Christian view of human nature, extend Christian horizons, and understand some of the limitations or distortions that others have perceived in Christian tradition.
