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, DC, was addressed to a "god of our many understandings."

What it needs more than ever before is a theology of religions that is exclusively Christ honoring, biblically faithful, intellectually satisfying, compassionate, and that will encourage Spirit-powered mission.
