292I The Challenge of the Christian Faith in a Pluralistic Society

They say that such an audacious assertion mocks the tenets of and thus invalidates other religions. This course will survey the scholarly objections to the Biblical claim of salvation in Jesus in a pluralistic society. We will examine the arguments that defend historical Christian soteriology.
