Today many question the idea that there is only one way to heaven (or that Christianity is the only true faith) -- even some people who identify themselves as Christians. In a world where we are likely to have neighbors of differing faiths, to profess Jesus as the only Savior may be viewed as arrogance and intolerance. Religious "pluralism" is gaining popularity. Ronald Nash believes that one's position on the issue is crucial to an understanding of the Christian faith and sees pluralism as a significant threat to Christianity. He explores the divergent views of pluralism ("No") and inclusivism ("Yes, but") and makes a case for exclusivism (Yes, period"). In doing so, Nash especially confronts the pluralism of John Hick and the inclusivism of Clark Pinnock and John Sanders. He presents his case compellingly, in accessible terms and a readable style.
Ronald H. Nash (PhD, Syracuse University) was professor of philosophy at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He is the author of numerous books, including The Concept of God and Faith and Reason.
Anthony Shuler1 Stars Out Of 5PoorJune 27, 2011Anthony ShulerQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This book is basically about exclusivism vs inclusivism vs pluralism. The author rightly advocates exclusivism. Only two problems. First, though I love technical theology books this one is about as exciting as watching paint dry. It's a great topic the author is just a poor writer. Second, he lacks the maturity and scholarly integrity to be writing like this. He did a horrendous job of research and embarrasses himself by using the childish blame-[insert doctrine you hate]-for-everything-by-lying-your-butt-off tactic. How humiliating for honest Christians to continuously have to be associated with such childishness displayed by their "leaders" like you find in this book.
