Religious pluralism is the greatest challenge facing Christianity in today's Western culture. The belief that Christ is the only way to God is being challenged, and increasingly Christianity is seen as just one among many valid paths to God.

In Four Views on Salvation in a Pluralistic World, four perspectives are presented by their major proponents:

  • Normative Pluralism All ethical religions lead to God (John Hick)
  • Inclusivism Salvation is universally available, but is established by and leads to Christ (Clark Pinnock)
  • Salvation in Christ Agnosticism regarding those who haven't heard the gospel (Alister McGrath)
  • Salvation in Christ Alone Salvation depends on explicit personal faith in Jesus Christ alone (R. Douglas Geivett and W. Gary Phillips)

This book allows each contributor to not only present the case for his view, but also to critique and respond to the critiques of the other contributors.

The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views--both Christian and non-Christian--on important theological issues.
