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. It 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.
-Publisher

A leading evangelical scholar presents clear, compelling thoughts on salvation through Christ alone. The book addresses the growing popularity of pluralistic theology.
-Publisher

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. The Gagging of God presents a persuasive case for Christ as not,merely one among many ways, but the only way for people to come to a saving knowledge of God.

D A Carson

Dr Don (D. A.) Carson is currently Research Professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. His areas of expertise include biblical theology, the historical Jesus, postmodernism, pluralism, Greek grammar, Johannine theology, Pauline theology, and questions of suffering and evil. Carson has written prolifically and profoundly on all these subjects.

Carson has written or edited 57 books - as well as numerous journal articles - ranging from New Testament commentaries to topical studies on the state of the contemporary church and its wider cultural context. His work is characterised by brilliant theological insight, thorough scholarship, and an uncompromising commitment to the essentials of Reformed doctrine.

Carson's landmark book, The Gagging of God: Christianity Confronts Pluralism won the 1997 Evangelical Christian Publishers Association Gold Medallion Award. Other works that examine the interaction of church and culture include The Inclusive Language Debate (1998), Becoming Conversant With the Emerging Church (2005), Christ and Culture Revisited (2008) and The Intolerance of Tolerance (2012).

Carson's exegetical works include volumes on individual New Testament books in the Revised Expositor's Bible Commentary, Pillar New Testament Commentary, Baker Exegetical Commentary, and New International Greek Testament Commentary. In Exegetical Fallacies (1984, 1996, 2nd ed.), Carson is at his incisive best, analysing the root causes of errors in biblical interpretation. He has also notably edited the New Testament Commentary Survey up to its 7th edition (2013), as well as the Zondervan Study Bible (2015).

Donald Arthur Carson was born in Montreal, Canada, in 1946. His undergraduate degree majored in mathematics and chemistry. He went on to undertake a Master of Divinity with a Baptist seminary and earned his PhD in New Testament from Cambridge University in 1975, the same year he married his wife Joy. In 1978, Carson joined the faculty of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, where he has worked ever since. In 2005 with Tim Keller, Carson founded The Gospel Coalition (TGC) - a network of Reformed churches dedicated to engaging and transforming the wider culture through speaking events, online advocacy, and publication. He continues to be an active guest lecturer in church and academic settings around the world.

Carson lives with his family in Liberty, Illinois. In his spare time he enjoys reading, hiking, and woodworking.
