Christianity and the Religions (EMS 2)
The Majesty and Greatness of God
Unprecedented opportunities and challenges await the Christian church as it approaches the 21st century. Just fifty years ago, we could not have dreamed how advanced technologies and the remarkable rise of non-Western missionaries would open doors for world evangelization. At the same time, the church finds itself increasingly troubled by internal and external pressures, resulting in a deep sense of insecurity about its mission in the world.
The current theological and missiological ferment is seen in debates about religious pluralism What is the relationship between the Christian faith and other religious traditions? Missiologist Gerald Anderson says, “No issue in missiology is more important, more difficult, more controversial, or more divisive for the days ahead than the theology of religions … This is the theological issue for mission in the 1990s and into the 21st century.”
The essays in this book take a fresh look at the biblical data to address pressing questions raised by religious pluralism. With a greater understanding of these issues, God’s people will not only have increased confidence in the one true God; they will be further emboldened to carry on the work of world missions.
