Unique & Universal Christ The Pb
Full Product Description
These days there are tremendous pressures on Christians to conform to a libertarian vision of a multifaith society where no one makes truth-claims about their faith.
In such a situation, Christians need to think afresh about the uniqueness and universality of Jesus Christ and what this might mean in today's plural world.
In this book, Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali shows how Jesus' understanding of himself and his work bears on contemporary cultures and their values:
- what does the gospel affirm, what does it fulfil and what does it challenge?
- How does our understanding of the crucified and risen Lord affect our view of the human condition?
- How can we evaluate the different religious traditions of the world in the light of Christ?
- How can we be welcoming and hospitable but also committed to that conversion and transformation of individuals and of human societies which has been revealed as God's purpose in Christ?

The Unique and Universal ChristMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This is an interesting book that is made so by the fact that it works from a British perspective and is a refutation of the multi-culturalism and political correctness that has worked to rob the Christian Faith of its voice and right to uphold a non pluralistic position and to take its stance without fear of upsetting others. This being said though it is not a standard fundamental position, it is a measured and thought out response to the attitude of pluralism that is prevalent. Nazir-Ali looks at all positions and strives to point out and uphold the positive balance that is the Christian tradition and gospel at work in the contemporary world. He upholds the rights and balances that is the Christian faith, not at the cost of other religions nor at the subjugation of them. It is an intelligent and well argued position and the book is one that should be read by anyone.
