By Todd L. Miles
Partially inspired by the changing landscape where religious diversity and plurality are part of social reality, in this book Todd Miles argues that world religions are no longer exotic, foreign entities, but rather, comprise neighbors and friends. Written from an exclusivist Christian position, Miles tackles the difficult question of the relationship between pluralism and missiology and argues that the challenge to religious pluralism is Christian evangelism. He further asserts that for a Christian, the validity of this theological position must be questioned and reexamined. In his engagement with other religions, Miles maintains the superiority of Christianity. While interreligious dialogue is fruitful; for Miles, the goal of such encounter is to convert others to the truth of Christ.
