Questions about the relationship between Christianity and the world's other faith traditions continue to confront the church. Evangelicals in particular struggle to understand how the uniqueness of Christ and the Christian message fits within a context of religious diversity.
This book brings together leading theologians from a variety of evangelical backgrounds to discuss contemporary Christian encounters with world religions.
Taking as their starting point the great variety of world religions, editor John G. Stackhouse, Jr., and his colleagues examine questions such as: What are religions? Are non-Christian faiths legitimate means of accessing the divine? Is there divine revelation in non-Christian religions? Is the "Jesus Story" found in other faith traditions? How should evangelism and missions proceed within a multi-faith context?
No Other God before Me? is a careful theological, sociological, historical, and anthropological treatment of Christian interaction with people of other faiths. It breaks new ground by asking tough questions and avoiding simplistic answers.
