Description

"Another outstanding book by preeminent evangelical philosopher of religion Harold Netland. With great effectiveness and faithfulness, Netland unpacks one of the knottiest theological issues of our day: the challenge of non-Christian religions and what that challenge means for those with Christian commitments. This is essential reading."
--Terry C. Muck, Louisville Institute

"As one of the most respected evangelicals working in the philosophy of religion over the past two-plus decades, Harold Netland is attentive like few others to the challenges confronting Christian faith in a global context. His characteristically careful treatment and analysis in this book help us understand why Christian mission has to proceed with humility rather than triumphalistically in the present ferment."
--Amos Yong, Fuller Theological Seminary

"There is no better writer today than Harold Netland on how to think about Jesus in a global, postcolonial world, especially when it comes to epistemology. Netland combines a passionate heart with a keen mind. He has listened carefully to the cacophonous worldwide discussion on these questions and has compelling things to say about how to believe that Jesus is the only way to the Father while at the same time recognizing that there is goodness and truth among other religionists."
--Gerald R. McDermott, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University

"The scope of Harold Netland's book is breathtaking. Seldom do you find such expansive coverage of issues and competing perspectives in a book that also reflects deep acquaintance with diverse disciplines. Netland's exposition of theories and traditions is even handed, and his assessment of complex arguments is incisive. Christianity & Religious Diversity is a model of exacting research, clear and cogent writing, and unusual generosity of spirit. It is an extraordinary achievement."
--R. Douglas Geivett, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
