Book Description

Inter-Faith is one of the most influential religious movements in the present world scene. A combination of academic theologians, leaders of main-line denominations and inter-faith activists themselves, agree that the great world religions all express an identical transcendence. All lead to the knowledge of God, and therefore all are possessed of a common unity. Here then is a view with far-reaching consequences.

Herbert J. Pollitt believes that the Inter-Faith movement only gains credence by ignoring two great facts: first, that the ‘divine’ allegedly found in each religion is as different as the religions themselves; and second, that the message of historic Christianity cannot be adjusted to any idea of a universal faith. This carefully argued book, with detailed information, is one of the most definitive titles yet to appear on this pressing issue.
