In the providence of God, why are there other religions? Was the God of the Bible wise in allowing for them? Can they serve any purpose? Gerald R. McDermott explores reflection on teaching from the Old and New Testaments and from a number of key teachers from the early church to suggest an answer to this perplexing but intriguing question. In the end McDermott provides considerable insight into the troubling clash of world religions and offers a helpful Christian response.
Gerald R. McDermott (Ph.D., University of Iowa) is professor of religion at Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia. He is the author of Can Evangelicals Learn from World Religions? One Holy and Happy Society: The Public Theology of Jonathan Edwards and Jonathan Edwards Confronts the Gods: Christian Theology, Enlightenment Religion and Non-Christian Faiths.
" God's Rivals presents in engaging, lucid style considerable biblical and historical information unfamiliar to most evangelicals. McDermott helps believers see how they can interact significantly with people in other religious systems."-- J. Scott Horrell, Bibliotheca Sacra, October-December 2008

"This is a fascinating summary and examination og the origin of world religions and how the Bible and the early church fathers perceived them. God?s Rivals provides helpful perspective on sharing Christ?s primacy with clarity and sensitivity."-- KPQX-AM, June 2007
