A Trinitarian Theology of Religions: An Evangelical Proposal
June 19, 2014
Religious pluralism has captured the interest of theologians for the last few decades as Christian interaction and engagement with other religions continues to expand. Evangelical scholars have also shown an increased interest the theology of religions and the Christian debates over the exclusivity of Christ and salvation. In this book, Gerald R. McDermott and Harold A. Netland offer critiques of a variety of theologians and religious studies scholars and challenge the leading theories in the field. Both authors try to evaluate the history of the Christian treatment of the “religious other” and propose ideas for theological engagement in the future. The book addresses the difficult questions of the role of missionizing, revelation, salvation, and ecumenism and offers diverse Christian responses to these issues.
