Editorial Reviews


"This book offers a remarkably lucid, systematic synthesis of the vexing question of the 'theology of religions,' drawing on the biblical witness, the Christian tradition, and a wide range of contemporary scholarship. The authors should be commended for achieving their ambitious goal of presenting an 'evangelical Christian framework for thinking about religions and religious others'...Given its exceptional clarity and organization, I would recommend Trinitarian Theology of Religions for upper-level undergraduate or seminary classes on the theology of religions or evangelical systematic theology. As evidenced by the four responses at the end, I also trust that this book will serve as an important contribution to the burgeoning literature concerning the theology of religions."--International Bulletin of Missionary Research

"A Trinitarian Theology of Religions is great resource not only for missiologists and theologians but also pastors and Christian leaders who are wrestling with the challenges of following Christ in a pluralistic world." --JETS

"Gerald McDermott and Harold Netland, who separately have contributed so much to the evangelical theology of religions, now together offer us the definitive place to engage it. This rich volume, with its sprightly and searching response essays, is both a state-of-the-art review and a positive advance in one of the most important conversations Christian theologians are having today." --John G. Stackhouse, Jr., Sangwoo Youtong Chee Professor of Theology and Culture, Regent College

"This 'evangelical proposal' is lucid, timely, and astute. It draws on a rich contemporary evangelical theological engagement with world religions. The authors also engage with the wider Christian debate, thus the proposal transcends denominational boundaries. The critical discussion of the book by four scholars at the end, along with Netland and McDermott's response, adds to the book's value as a stimulating theological resource. This is an important contribution to the literature." --Gavin D'Costa, author of Vatican II: Doctrines on Jews and Muslims
