Overview

Over the last four decades, evangelical scholars have shown growing interest in Christian debates over other religions, seeking answers to essential questions: How are we to think about and relate to other religions, be open to the Spirit, and at the same time remain evangelical and orthodox? Gerald R. McDermott and Harold A. Netland offer critiques of a variety of theologians and religious studies scholars, including evangelicals, but also challenge evangelicals to move beyond parochial positions. This volume is both a manifesto and a research program, critically evaluating the last forty years of Christian treatments of religious others and proposing a comprehensive direction for the future. It addresses issues relating to the religions in both systematic theology and missiology, taking up long-debated questions such as contextualization, salvation, revelation, the relationship between culture and religion, conversion, social action, and ecumenism. It concludes with responses from four leading thinkers of African, Asian, and European backgrounds: Veli-Matti Karkkainen, Vinoth Ramachandra, Lamin Sanneh, and Christine Schirrmacher.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Gerald McDermott and Harold Netland, who separately have contributed so much to the evangelical theology of religions, now together offer us the definitive place to engage it. This rich volume, with its sprightly and searching response essays, is both a state-of-the-art review and a positive advance in one of the most important conversations Christian theologians are having today." —John G. Stackhouse, Jr., Sangwoo Youtong Chee Professor of Theology and Culture, Regent College

"This 'evangelical proposal' is lucid, timely, and astute. It draws on a rich contemporary evangelical theological engagement with world religions. The authors also engage with the wider Christian debate, thus the proposal transcends denominational boundaries. The critical discussion of the book by four scholars at the end, along with Netland and McDermott's response, adds to the book's value as a stimulating theological resource. This is an important contribution to the literature." —Gavin D'Costa, author of Vatican II: Doctrines on Jews and Muslims
