Uneven Response to MYTH OF CHRISTIAN UNIQUENESS Dec 4, 2007
This is a collection of essays intending a (more or less) orthodox response to an earlier anthology that cast doubt on the uniqueness of Christianity and argued for a pluralistic approach to religion. As in any collection, some essays are better than others. The two texts are a nice one-two punch. My own take is that the defenders of Christian uniqueness don't fare as well as the attackers. Some Christians have taken the (to my mind) self-defeating route of post-modernism to defend the particularity of Christian faith. There is no such thing as objective truth, so you might as well believe in Christianity. This is perhaps an unfair summary, but I believe that it's their position. But don't take my word for it. Read THE MYTH OF CHRISTIAN UNIQUENESS and this response and decide for yourself.
