Product Description

While Evangelical Christians have extensive experience with other religions through missionary endeavors, in today's postmodern, pluralistic context, the nature of religious encounter is changing.

Christianity is faced with a different apologetic task than in ages past. Rather than being at the head of the table, Christianity now finds itself at a roundtable, dialoging with competing faiths. Keenely aware of these shifts, Tennet's book encourages and facilitates just this sort of serious dialogue. Engaging doctrinal challenges to Christianity from Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism, the author's goal is to increase evangelical awareness of the need to think more critically about Christianity's encounter with competing world faiths.

Argues that Christian dialogue with other faiths is an integral part of our call to proclaim the message of Christ.

Author Bio

Timothy C. Tennent (Ph.D., University of Edinburgh) is associate professor of world missions at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

Endorsements

Drawing upon extensive intercultural and interreligious ministry experience as well as solid work in theology and comparative religions, Professor Tim Tennent has produced an important work that should take evangelical discussions about theology of religions to a new level. Tennent displays a refreshing blend of respect for and willingness to learn from other traditions along with a firm commitment to the gospel of Jesus Christ as truth for all people.
-Harold Netland,
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

A vigorous, clearly-written invitation to committed Christians to enter the thought-worlds of other people. With an approach interestingly modeled on Luther's Table Talk, Tennent brings great but frequently neglected experimental thinkers of the past, such as Brahmabandhav Upadhyay and A. G. Hogg, to a roundtable discussion on issues very much up-to-date.
-Andrew Walls,
University of Edinburgh

An invaluable resource, meticulously researched. This book gets to the heart and mind of these major religions and responds with brilliant insight for effective dialogue.
-Ravi Zacharias,
president, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries
