The Faithfulness of Pluralism
Few questions are as pertinent and nettling for Christians as those posed by religious pluralism. Are Christians to see themselves as having an exclusive take on religious truth? Is acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior necessary to a person's salvation? What are Christians to make of the manifest insights and wisdom of other religious traditions?
This lucid and sensitively written book, The Faithfulness of Pluralism, tackles how Christians are to approach the topic. It demonstrates how Christians can respond to religious diversity in faithfulness to scripture and tradition without the negative teachings that have often marred the past. Then the book sketches the rise of religious pluralism in American history and Christianity's response. Lastly, the book outlines nine religious traditions and what each has to offer and teach committed Christians today.
The Faithfulness of Pluralism is a concise introduction to religious pluralism where readers can learn the basics to better understand its history and value.
