In this timely book for believers, inquirers, and skeptics alike, James R. Edwards faces head-on the question of whether or not Jesus is indeed the sole savior of the world. After tracing the currents of modernity from the Enlightenment to the Jesus Seminar, Edwards contends that the assumptions of the most skeptical historical-Jesus scholars are no more intellectually defensible than the claims of faith. He then assembles extensive support to show that Jesus considered himself the unique and saving mission of God to the world.

Edwards devotes the second half of the book to discussing Jesus as savior in light of contemporary cultural currents, specifically addressing the thorny issues of religious pluralism, moral relativism, postmodernism, and the quest for world peace. Illustrated with real-life stories, Is Jesus the Only Savior? gives a fair hearing to twenty-first-century concerns while upholding historic Christian faith.

Library Journal
"A readable, well-reasoned theological defense of Jesus as God's only savior. Through the use of personal stories, Edwards effectively addresses readers whose faith may have been adversely affected by modern philosophical presuppositions of subjectivism, religious eclecticism, and/or religious syncretism. . . [The book] contributes positively to the larger philosophical argument of the existence of objective universal truths."
Princeton Seminary Bulletin
"In this well-written volume, James Edwards turns his theological ship into the relativistic winds of present western intellectual culture and sails against the tide of postmodern skepticism regarding the truth value of all religious claims."
"A well-written and wide-ranging book. . . Its value is in bringing together in one volume such a wide range of topics, all of which are handled competently."
Stephen T. Davis
"Lively and cleverly written yet carefully argued. . . I enthusiastically recommend this book to all who are interested in the truth about Jesus."
D. A. Carson
"Grounded in scholarship and common sense, this book lays out in brief compass why Jesus remains the only savior."
I. Howard Marshall
"An unusual book on the question of religious pluralism. . . This valuable contribution from the pen of a New Testament scholar will assist readers looking for a defense of the historical Christian understanding of the person and place of Jesus."
