9780830815524: Encountering Religious Pluralism: The Challenge to Christian Faith & Mission

A 2002 Christianity Today Book of the Year! The world is filled with religions. That is not a new observation. But the way we think about religious diversity, argues Harold Netland, is new. In this book Harold Netland traces the emergence of the pluralistic ethos that now challenges traditional Christian faith and mission. Identifying theologian and philosopher John Hick as the most influential apologist for religious pluralism, Netland interacts extensively with his thought. His incisive analysis leads to a sustained response to the philosophical questions raised about the nature of religious truth, the criteria for adjudicating rival truth claims and the implications for doing Christian apologetics. In his conclusion, Netland provides us with a framework for developing a comprehensive evangelical theology of religions. This book is essential reading for students, teachers and scholars wanting a thorough analysis of our contemporary religious context and guidance for responding to it faithfully for the sake of Christian truth and mission.

About the Author:

Netland is professor of philosophy of religion and intercultural studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. He has spent much of his professional life in Japan. His other books include Dissonant Voices: Religious Pluralism and the Question of Truth.

Review:

'Netland examines the critical issues that evangelicals must address if they are to grapple effectively with these emerging religious realities. He concludes with a proposal for 'an Evangelical Theology of Religions' that is constructive and hopeful.' Wilbert Shenk, Professor of Mission History and Contemporary Culture
