Abstract:

Is there a God who calls us to a discipleship of our minds? What is the uniqueness of Christianity? Do the major non-Christian worldviews and world religions have any insights or inspiration to offer those who have chosen the Christian journey? Is God at work within the various religions drawing people to himself? Addressing provocative questions like these, Professor Perry Cotham challenges readers to re-examine long-held attitudes on life's most crucially important issues.
