Are All Religions True?:
(Questions for Restless Minds)

Harold Netland

Lexham Press

How you should think about religious diversity.

We live in a diverse world. Religious pluralism holds that each religion is of equal worth and offers a legitimate lifestyle. But Christianity claims Jesus is the only way to be saved. Is Christianity bigoted?

In Are All Religions True?, Harold A. Netland offers a Christian response to religious pluralism. Netland considers the nature of religious claims, tolerance, and the great commission. Wisdom is needed. While Christians should support aspects of religious diversity, we also believe that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of all. Learn how you can be devoted to Christ while showing love for those of other faiths.


Harold Netland

Harold A. Netland (PhD Claremont Graduate University) is Professor of Philosophy of Religion and Intercultural Studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He is the author of Encountering Religious Pluralism: The Challenge to Christian Faith and Mission (IVP Academic, 2001), Christianity and Religious Diversity: Clarifying Christian Commitments in a Globalizing Age (Baker Academic, 2015), and Religious Experience and the Knowledge of God: The Evidential Force of Divine Encounters (Baker Academic, 2022).


Having reflected thoughtfully on these issues for many years, Harold Netland offers readers a helpful theological roadmap to navigate the complex terrain of Christian conversation on religious diversity. He shows how one can be faithful to Christ's universal lordship while treating adherents of non-Christian religions with dignity and honor.

This generation of Christians inhabit cultures that sometimes reject not only biblical revelation about reality but also the reality of reality itself. The Questions for Restless Minds series poses many of the toughest questions faced by young Christians to some of the world’s foremost Christian thinkers and leaders. Along the way, this series seeks to help the Christian next generation to learn how to think biblically when they face questions in years to come that perhaps no one yet sees coming.

If you’re hungry to go deeper in your faith, wrestle with hard questions, and are dissatisfied with the shallow content on your social media newsfeed, you’ll really appreciate this series of thoughtful deep dives on critically important topics like faith, the Bible, friendship, sexuality, philosophy, and more. As you engage with some world-class Christian scholars, you’ll be encouraged, equipped, challenged, and above all invited to love God more with your heart, soul, mind, and strength.

We have written short books pitched at undergraduates who want arguments that are accessible and stimulating, but invariably courteous. The material is comprehensive enough that it has become an important resource for pastors and other campus leaders who devote their energies to work with students. Each essay ends with a brief annotated bibliography, intended for readers who want to probe a little further.
