I like this book. It is a small book at 79 pages, and a great give away book for non-believers at that. The language is simple and clear of Christian jargon.
I think this is an excellent book for Christians to read too as it helps us get to grips with a popular concept that has swamped popular culture over the last 20 years; pluralism - the concept that all religions are simply roads to God.
Dickson's aim in writing the book is not to prove the Christian faith at all, but rather by outlining the main lines of verification open to the interested enquirer he aims to illustrate the broadly verifiable nature of Christianity.
The book starts with a discussion on how we are, by nature, incurably religious;
Dickson then asks how on earth are we to find clarity amid the noise of competing religious claims? Too often the response, when presented with such a wide range of options is to concede defeat, abdicate responsibility and make no choice at all.
The book then examines pluralism, a popular concept today , and one which appears to be firmly entrenched in the western liberal society of today. It does this by reference to various world religions, and also by looking at Acts 17 where Paul addresses a multitude of religions in the Aeropagus in Athens. Dickson helps us see the pluralism is essentially intolerance in disguise, as it stems from an aversion to having to think too hard about anything spiritual.
Dickson then encourage us to put our thinking caps on and investigate.Read more ›
