Religious pluralism, the idea that all religions are equal, is an urgent issue facing Christians today. How do we uphold the gospel’s universal truth—and the exclusive nature of Christ’s work of redemption—in a world where all religions are treated as equal sources of truth? How can we share with our Muslim, Hindu, or Buddhist neighbors what Christianity has to offer them?
How Christianity fulfills others’ needs
Dr. Michael Goheen answers these questions and more in his course Missional Approach to World Religions—part of the Logos Mobile Education: Missions and Church Planting Bundle.
In this course, Dr. Goheen—author, professor of missiology, and pastor—begins by explaining how we must understand world religions from the perspective of the gospel. He provides a framework from Scripture as he develops a theology of religions. Dr. Goheen examines the practices, origins, and beliefs of three major world religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam. He identifies their points of contact with Christianity so you can understand the needs of people who follow these religions, what they are seeking, and how Christianity can fulfill their needs.
Dr. Goheen also emphasizes the importance of providing an authentic witness based in a comprehensive application of the gospel to our lives. He concludes in his course: “Our witness to adherents from other religions certainly will come in our words, certainly will come in our deeds, but behind them all must be a life that is being . . . transformed by the power of the gospel and the work of the Spirit. It’s then that our words will carry power, as we seek point of contact as we dialogue in a listening and loving and humble way. Our witness comes not only in words but also in deeds, and both of them are rooted in a life more and more being shaped by the gospel.”
Missional Approach to World Religions will help you understand the core beliefs and practices of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam, and it will give you confidence to be a better witness to your neighbors.
