God may have many names, but there is still only one way to heaven  Sep 16, 2005
If you're looking for a book that likes to bash orthodox Christianity, rejects the historical person of Jesus Christ (the God-man), and advocates the view that God can be some impersonal entity then this book is for you. It is obvious that Hick has an agenda in this book: orthodox Christianity is not helping the cause for the creation of a Marxist-Leninist utopian world, thus, needs to be deconstructed to something that doesn't resemble Christianity at all. His main argument is that people of various religions experience the same "God" but do so differently because of their social, cultural, and geographical environment. Thus, YHWH is basically the same person (or entity, according to Hick) as let's say the Norse god Odin experienced differently. If this is not blasphemy, I don't know what is. He, thus, thinks that a Christian can work together in harmony with an Odinist, Hercules worshipper, Shintoist, Baalist, animist, etc. for the creation of a Marxist-Leninist paradise on earth. Hick is one guy who is angry at orthodox Christianity and wants to do something about it. It is obvious he is not working within the Christian paradigm but against it. In fact, he rarely quotes from Scripture to back up his points - which is no surprise, since Scripture does not support his outrageous claims. Jesus told his disciples in John 14:6 that he is "the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (NIV). Since Jesus said this, I can only believe that his words are true. If you are looking for good books on religious pluralism from an orthodox Christian perspective I suggest you get James R. Edwards' "Is Jesus the Only Savior?" and Ronald H. Nash's book with the exact same title. These books will surely demonstrate to you that soteriological pluralism is full of untruth.
 
Enlightening  Oct 3, 2003
Depending on where your faith is placed, this book will be one of your favorites or heretical!! Because pluralism speaks to me, it is one of the most enlightening books I have ever read. I believe God is real and found in many "forms". As Hicks quotes from the Bhagavad-Gita......."Howsoever men may approach me, even so do I accept them; for, on all sides, whatever path they may choose is mine".
 
The Challenge of Pluralism  Aug 22, 2001
This is one of the first books I read after moving from Christianity to agnosticism to a more theistic worldview. John Hick is one of the leading philosophers promoting the idea that all axial (major) religions are valid paths to god as well as many lesser known belief systems. Being that his audience is mainly composed of Christians or influenced by Christian culture, Hick focuses on Christian exclusivists (those who believe in only one way to God and that being Christianity) must overcome their confining worldview in light of the fact Christianity has failed to bring about the Kingdom of God; we're no better than other cultures and sometimes worse. Anyone wishing to defend an exclusivistic path should read this or any of the other books among Hick's publications. Anyone thinking Christianity might be wrong in it's traditional approach should also read this book to discover a new, valid approach. As Paul said, "...when I became an adult, I put away childish things."
