The Gold Medallion Award-winning book that 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.

What an enormous amount Carson has read in his research! This is a good, quality book. ( )

This is a great book. Broad in scope, detailed in depth. It is a deep read and took awhile to digest. As usual Carson has digested a tremendous amount of information to develop this treatise on the Christians response to a culture that is rejecting truth. ( )

After an initial survey of pluralism, The Gagging of God divides into four parts: Part 1 looks at the history behind modern pluralism, especially the revolution in hermeneutics, literary theory, and epistemology; part 2 addresses religious pluralism, notably the work of John Hick and David Tracy, and considers inclusivists such as Clark Pinnock and John Sanders. It argues for the Bible's foundational "plot-line" that resists liberal interpretations, and it explores what is meant by the uniqueness of Christ; part 3 analyzes the Christian's stance in a pluralistic culture across such diverse fields as education, law, and morals; and part 4 looks at how pluralism has penetrated the evangelical camp. It considers particular issues, such as the modern church's aversion to the subject of hell, and addresses the broader questions raised by contextualization and globalization. It offers a thoughtful look at how to evangelize in a postmodern generation.… (more)
