Local Christians Face America's New Religious Diversity
This chapter sorts out the great variety of Christian perspectives in a multireligious America: Does a typology emerge from the case studies of this book that can offer a fresh way of looking at the important topic of Christian relations with other religions? However, this chapter goes beyond mere classification to ask a crucial question of all Christians, regardless of perspective: How would they wish adherents of other religions to think of them and the Christian faith? The chapter examines the well-known categories of exclusivism, inclusivism, and pluralism, which emphasize religious truth claims, and ends by advocating the attitude of Christian meekness and humility described in the New Testament.
