Christianity at the Religious Roundtable: Evangelicalism in Conversation with Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
For so long I have wondered why everyone who actually had genuine faith in Islam or Christianity or some other religion was asked to check their faith at the door before they entered into dialogue. Finally, Timothy Tennent has shown me that you don't have to do that. I highly recommend this book! It was a joy to read. Michael Kennedy Los Angeles, CA
