Too many sources are taken from non-neutral sources. So much so that the author has resorted to quoting from comments on blogposts.

This book could do more to get information from sources that aren't biased one way or another as well as personally research the doctrines of the religions it is discussing. For example, while some religions may say that only their church will be saved, usually there is a caveat that those who followed the laws in their hearts would still be saved. In fact this is exactly the case with one of the religions being discussed here: the Iglesia ni Cristo. These kinds of oversights reflect poorly on the book.
