Book Description-266: IS JESUS THE ONLY SAVIOR? (Prof. Ronald H. Nash, Ph.D.)

Nowadays, many people teach and believe in pluralism and inclusivism who deny that Jesus Christ who is the only Savior of the world should be believed in order to be saved. As Christians, how do we respond and challenge those beliefs?

Get the answers from:

oleh: (late) Prof. Ronald H. Nash, Ph.D.

Publisher:: Zondervan, Grand Rapids, Michigan, 1994

In the preface in this book, Dr. Ronald H. Nash explains what pluralist (like John Hick) and inclusivist (Clark H. Pinnock, John Sanders, etc) believe in contrast to excluvist believes. Those two beliefs (pluralism and inclusivism) and what they teach are explained in two parts: part one which consists of 6 chapters explains about Hick’s fallacies of pluralism based on Biblical and philosophical analysis; and part two which consists 5 chapters explains about Pinnock, Sanders, and other inclusivist’s fallacies of inclusivism based on Biblical and philosophical analysis. In the final chapter on part 2, Dr. Nash explains the reason why he is not an inclusivist. Let this book teaches us what the Bible teaches us about the uniqueness and finality of Lord Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world.
