While Evangelical Christians have extensive experience with other religions through missionary endeavors, in today's postmodern, pluralistic context, the nature of religious encounter is changing.
Christianity is faced with a different apologetic task than in ages past. Rather than being at the head of the table, Christianity now finds itself at a roundtable, dialoging with competing faiths. Keenely aware of these shifts, Tennet's book encourages and facilitates just this sort of serious dialogue. Engaging doctrinal challenges to Christianity from Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism, the author's goal is to increase evangelical awareness of the need to think more critically about Christianity's encounter with competing world faiths.
