From the Back Cover
Religious pluralism is the greatest challenge facing Christianity in Western culture today. The belief that Christ is the only way to God is being challenged, and increasingly, Christianity is seen as just one among many valid paths to God.
In Four Views on Salvation in a Pluralistic World, four perspectives are presented by a major advocate of each:
Normative Pluralism: all ethical religions lead to God (John Hick)
Inclusivism: salvation is universally available, but is established by and leads to Christ (Clark Pinnock)
Salvation in Christ: agnosticism regarding those who havent heard the gospel (Alister McGrath)
Salvation in Christ alone: (R. Douglas Geivett and W. Gary Phillips)
This book allows each contributor to not only present the case for his view, but also to respond to the critiques of the other contributors and to critique their views in turn.
The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on issues important to Christians. Counterpoints books address two categories: Church Life and Exploring Theology. Complete your library with other books in the Counterpoints series.
