No Other Name?: A Critical Survey of Christian Attitudes Toward the World Religions

Front Cover
Orbis Books, Jan 1, 1985 - Religion - 288 pages
2 Reviews
An honest discussion regarding how devout Christians should react to the academic evidence and genuine personal experience that other religious ways result in engaged, loving and moral lives. Does being saved, by the Christian definition, require a faith in Jesus Christ - meaning the historical person - or rather is it only important that human beings life their lives in accordance to His teachings. This books argues that one can be committed to a savior of some other name, and simultaneously be aligned with Christian theologically and commitment.

Long overdue to read this. An interesting typology for thinking about a variety of ways in which Christians might consider Jesus Christ "unique" with respect to the existence of many religions. Laying a helpful basis for discussion in my undergrad class. Read full review
