Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Gold Medallion Award-winning book that presents a persuasive case for Christ as the only way to God.Is Jesus the only way to God? This clear, critically-acclaimed, scholarly response to that question affirms the deep need for the Gospel's exclusive message in today's increasingly pluralistic global community. The Gagging of God offers an in-depth look at the big picture, shows how the many ramifications of pluralism are all parts of a whole, and then provides a systematic Christian response.

Synopsis:

After an initial survey of pluralism, The Gagging of God divides into four parts: Part 1 looks at the history behind modern pluralism, especially the revolution in hermeneutics, literary theory, and epistemology; part 2 addresses religious pluralism, notably the work of John Hick and David Tracy, and considers inclusivists such as Clark Pinnock and John Sanders. It argues for the Bible's foundational "plot-line" that resists liberal interpretations, and it explores what is meant by the uniqueness of Christ; part 3 analyzes the Christian's stance in a pluralistic culture across such diverse fields as education, law, and morals; and part 4 looks at how pluralism has penetrated the evangelical camp. It considers particular issues, such as the modern church's aversion to the subject of hell, and addresses the broader questions raised by contextualization and globalization. It offers a thoughtful look at how to evangelize in a postmodern generation. The Gagging of God presents a persuasive case for Christ as not merely one among many ways, but the only way for people to come to a saving knowledge of God.

Synopsis:

A leading evangelical scholar presents clear, compelling thoughts on salvation through Christ alone. The book addresses the growing popularity of pluralistic theology.

Synopsis:

Does it really matter what you believe, as long as you're sincere? What about those who've never heard about Jesus? Is Jesus the only savior? D.A. Carson addresses the tough questions posed by today's religious inclusivism. Those concerned for souls will deepen their understanding of the world's need for salvation through Christ alone.
