ISBN: 9780310496717


This Gold Medallion Award–winning book 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.

  • History of pluralism, especially the revolution in hermeneutics, literary theory, and epistemology
  • Addresses religious pluralism, notably the work of John Hick and David Tracy, and of inclusivists such as Clark Pinnock and John Sanders
  • Argues for the Bible’s foundational “plotline,” and addresses the uniqueness of Christ
  • Analyzes the Christian’s stance in a pluralistic culture across such diverse fields as education, law, and morals
  • Looks at how pluralism has penetrated the evangelical camp and offers a thoughtful look at how to evangelize in a postmodern generation
The Gagging of God makes a tremendous contribution . . . highly recommended.

Evangelical Journal

. . . on the issues of pluralism, postmodernism, and biblical interpretation, it is a splendid resource.
