"Only One Way? guides us unerringly through the contemporary world of religious pluralism and points us to Jesus Christ alone as the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Grasping the central truth that the Christian gospel is unintelligible apart from the uniqueness of Christ, these pages expound it in a variety of insightful ways. Here are six scholars and pastors boldly upholding the only kind of Christianity worthy of the name."
—Sinclair B. Ferguson, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina
"Although religious pluralism is often treated as a 'postmodern' phenomenon, it has always been the world's most fundamental challenge to the gospel. The authors of this thoughtful work press us, as the apostles did, to stand against the world for the world's sake. Only one way? At a time when many evangelicals don't seem so sure, these writers help us to confidently answer yes!"
—Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California
"There is a battle raging in the world today-it is a battle for truth. And in a day when the god of relativism governs hearts and minds throughout the world, Christians cannot be silent. This timely book calls God's people to action. I am thankful the Lord has raised up faithful men to stand firm and proclaim boldly the truth about God's truth."
—Burk Parsons, Copastor, Saint Andrew’s Chapel, Sanford, Florida; Editor, Tabletalk magazine

Ch 1, David F Wells: One Among Many
'On the grounds that they have God 'within' them, 60% of Americans say that they do not need the church. In life's crises, 56% say that they look for help from the 'power within', rather than to the God without.' p 26
Ch 2, Peter R Jones: One God
'Many Christians will be surprised to learn that the chief doctrinal attack in our time is directed not to the inspiration of Scripture or the deity of Christ, but to the doctrine of God....for many in our day, biblical theism is no longer the starting point of their thinking.' p 45 Jones' analysis of the newest foreign invasion, polytheism, notes it is in effect a revival of paganism, and thus he wisely dubs it 'neo-paganism'.
Ch 3, Richard D Phillips: One Savior
'Everywhere today we hear: 'There are many ways to God'. Let us observe, at least, that Jesus taught the exact opposite: there are many ways to hell, He said, but ONLY ONE WAY to God.' p 77
Ch 4, Philip G Ryken: One Truth
'The same God who is the truth and does the truth comes to help us know the truth. Like everything else in the Christian life, knowledge of the truth only comes by grace. We know the absolute truth, not because of who we are, but because of who God is.'
*In closing, Dr Ryken's exposition of 'A LIFE OF TRUE LOVE' is worth the price of this book alone and must rank as of the most unique prose in Christian memory. But I do not want to spoil your joy...zip!
Ch 5, J. Ligon Duncan III: One People
'If you want to complain about a doctrine being unfair, then complain of the reward of heaven by grace. If ever there was an unfair doctrine, it is that. Hell, on the other hand, is the fairest doctrine in the world. This truth humbles us to the dust.' pp. 116-117
Ch 6, D.A. Carson: One Way
'Although we are not yet in consummated glory already, right now, among Christ's people, it has been declared, 'You cannot sin here. Sinning is not done here.' And when, poor, frail creatures that we are, we do sin, we return to the one place where there is hope: the Cross of Christ.' p 141
One gets a feeling of inadequacy when faced with the overwhelming flood of cultural diversity and eclectical religion invading our lives today. In desperation we realize the sinister nature of this interwoven worldview, but are unable to confront its tenets, or inept in standing firm in the faith, received by God's grace through Christ Jesus. It is therefore, with the purest motive of love, the highest good of charity in informing the body of Christ, that these authors bring us theological brilliance as this - a faithful declaration of a triune God being the only wise, the only great, the only sovereign, the only true Author of life - even in unpopular times.
This book contends that there is:
- One God.
- One Savior.
- One Truth.
- One way of salvation.
This very readable volume demonstrates Christ's uniqueness through the truth of His work of propitiation, His resurrection, His deity, and the prophetic evidence of His claims.
Richard Phillips is the editor with chapters by:
- David Wells.
- Peter Jones.
- Philip Ryken.
- D.A. Carson.
- Ligon Duncan.
An important subject defended by capable scholars.
