Product Description

Western christianity's interaction with World Religions used to happen, for the most part, across the oceans. However, "religious others" often live next door today. In fact, one public prayer spoken during the 2009 United States presidential inauguration events in Washington D.C. was addressed to a "god of our many understandings.

Certainly, the evangelical Christian church should do more than simply dismiss non-Christian religions as pagan without argument or comment. What we need more now, than ever before, is a theology of religions that is exclusively Christ honoring, biblically faithful, intellectually satisfying, compassionate, and that will encourage Spirit-empowered mission.

Publisher's Description

Western Christianity’s interaction with world religions used to be, for the most part, overseas. Today, “religious others” often live next door. At a changing time when one public prayer spoken during the 2009 U.S. presidential inauguration festivities was addressed to “O god of our many understandings,” the evangelical Christian church should do more than simply dismiss non-Christian religions as pagan without argument or comment. The Church needs a theology of religions that is Christ-honoring, biblically faithful, intellectually satisfying, compassionate, and that will encourage Spirit-powered mission.

Oregon-based theology professor Todd Miles writes to that end in A God of Many Understandings?, attempting, as the scholar Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen puts it, “to think theologically about what it means for Christians to live with people of other faiths and about the relationship of Christianity to other religions.”

Author/Artist Review

Author: Todd Miles
Located in: Portland, OR
Submitted: June 10, 2010

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I have been a believer in Jesus Christ since childhood, having the blessing of being raised in a family that believed the gospel. I am married with three children. I am an Associate Professor of Theology at Western Seminary in Portland, OR, and serve as an elder at my church.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I am concerned that efforts to explain how people might be saved apart from hearing and believing the gospel diminish our commitment to missions. I have found such proposals to be biblically unfaithful and logically problematic.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I pray that any who read this book will be in awe that our great God has made salvation available in his Son and that they will be compelled to love and proclaim the gospel of life.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  When you begin to marshal evidence for the supremacy and exclusivity of Christ from Scripture, you are overwhelmed at the grace of God and the excellencies of Christ.
