Editorial Reviews

“All in all, D’Costa should be commended for writingan excellent book. This work is a wonderful contribution to theconversation regarding Christianity and non-Christian religions. Ihighly recommend it for all persons interested in the theology ofreligions, as well as any Christian looking for new ways tounderstand the possibility of salvation fornon-Christians.”  (The International Journal ofPublic Theology, 1 December 2012)

"I warmly encourage readers in each to take it up and read."(One in Christ, July 2010) "[D'Costa] finds convincingsubstantiation for his position in biblical, patristic, andmedieval Christian doctrine." (CHOICE, September 2009)"For ageneration which is reasserting its Catholic identity, this thesismay serve a valuable purpose, calming the anxieties of those who,admirable, have managed to maintain an interest in the salvation ofnon-Christians yet are as hard put to win converts as their morepluralist co-religionists." (The Way, January 2010)

"His gazetteer of these regions at the edge of theeschatological map is fascinating. The closing pages are asperceptive a meditation on what the dereliction of the cross canand cannot mean as we might expect to find in a first-rate bookdevoted entirely to that subject." (Chruch Times, December2009)
