In today's pluralistic culture, Christianity is no longer the dominant belief system. Interest in religion is on the increase again after having declined in the seventies, but this does not mean that people are returning to the same positions they once held. Eastern religions, especially, have attracted wide interest.

This significant work by Hendrik Vroom presses the theological an dialogical dimensions of religious pluralism. Vroom here makes a broad study of the views of Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam, especially their views on truth, and explores their mutual relationships. In the process, he seeks to answer a crucial question for our time: For what reasons would a person who has read extensively on Buddhist, Hindu, or Islamic thought continue to be a Christian?

"Hendrik Vroom's book achieves an unusually fine balance between respect for the religious traditions he investigates and candor about the strengths and weaknesses he sees from his own perspective. A well-informed and forthright account such as this will further interreligious dialogue as few recent books have."
