Throughout history millions have lived and died without hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Despite vigorous missionary efforts, large populations of the world today have never been evangelized. And now religious pluralism has set up shop on Main Street. The question "Who can be saved?" forces itself on the minds of Christians like never before.Is there a wideness in God's mercy?Does God reveal himself in a way that invites all people to respond positively in saving faith?Does one have to be an Arminian to believe so?Or is there a way for Calvinists to see how God might reveal and save apart from the explicit "gospel" and yet exclusively through Jesus Christ?And if so, what does this say about the role of religions within the sovereign providence of God?These are big questions requiring thoughtful care. In this intriguing study, Terrance L. Tiessen reassesses the questions of salvation and the role of religions and offers a proposal that is biblically rooted, theologically articulated and missiologically sensitive. This is a book that will set new terms for the discussion of these important issues.… (more)

Tiessen examines the controversial topic of salvation, particularly the salvation of the unevangelized. He broaches the topic through an accessibilist view point (as opposed to an Ecclesioncentric or Relativist view) which posits that "Jesus Christ is exclusively God's means of salvation," and " that God makes salvation accessible to people who do not receive the gospel." Therefore, there are many among the unevangelized (though not all) who were, are and will be saved. Tiessen also broaches the topics of the role of non-Christian religions and how God uses them in His plan of salvation. ( )
