The author "explores various models of the place of Christianity among the world religions. He offers a way forward based on `grounded openness' -- a deep personal commitment to Christ that can open Christians to the grace of God in other great spiritual traditions. This book provides a helpful introduction to the inter-faith movement and to the large body of writing on inter-religious dialogue". -- inside front cover.
