    1. I m impressed Tennent s book is the most fair minded and respectful Christian exploration into other world religions that I ve encountered The only negative I could possibly come up with is that his pre debate background on each religion Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam is sometimes too detailed for my limited attention span.The roundtable lets each religion have its say Some of Tennent s ground rules First, all differences of opinion or perspectives should be shared honestly without being pejorati [...]


    2. This book provides a unique approach on the study of world religions In the chapters, the author provides a summary of specific core beliefs for a religion, and then allows for dialogue about the specific belief and how it differs from Christianity I enjoyed this approach, because it allowed for voices of the Hindu, Buddhist, and Islamic faiths to voice their arguments for faith Very insightful.


    3. I love Tennent s work on world religions, and this entry is a fine one to his corpus Especially from a conservative, Evangelical perspective, you won t find any thoughtful work that interacts with Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam I enjoyed the format of this book each chapter being interspersed with fictional dialogue between conversation partners but the case studies at the end really added to the value Overall, I think another book by Tennent, Theology in the Context of World Christianity is a b [...]


    4. An excellent work by Tennent, the most profoundly theological of any missiologist that I know of He demonstrates the value of dialogue while still desiring conversion His case studies are not strawmen, but demonstrate legitimate interaction over ideas at the theological and worldview level This is a must read.


    5. Tennent deals with some very heady issues in this book, but the practical implications of his approach make this book worth reading.
