Coming Soon from Baker Books: Jesus, the Only Way to God

John Piper dosen't need an introduction. But who better to write on this very timely topic? Piper is sure to bring academic rigor combined with pastoral wisdom and sound Biblical exegesis. Jesus, the Only Way to God: Must You Hear the Gospel to be Saved? is sure to spark controversy as it seeks to cut through the current fog of doubt and postmodern gibberish on the issue of salvation.

The catalog description follows:

"If the evangelical church at large was ever too confrontational in its evangelism, those days are gone. In our shrinking, pluralistic world, the belief that Jesus is the only way of salvation is increasingly called arrogant and even hateful. In the face of this criticism, many shrink back from affirming the global necessity of knowing and believing in Jesus. In Jesus, the Only Way to God, John Piper offers a timely plea for the evangelical church to consider what is at stake in surrendering the unique, universal place of Jesus in salvation."

Look for it in August. It will be a paperback with 208 pages and sell for $5.99. (No, that's not a mistake. It's only $5.99.)

I'm looking forward to working with this book myself. But it is actually coming out from the Baker Books imprint, not Baker Academic. Thanks for all you do to highlight great books and great authors at the store!

Erin,

Oops, sorry about that. Correction noted and changed. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks, Louis. Look forward to reading.
As I've said elsewhere (quoting Hick, ironically)

"If he [Jesus] was indeed God incarnate, Christianity is the only religion founded by God in person, and must as such be uniquely superior to all other religions."
John Hick, The Metaphor of God Incarnate

"And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us."
John the Apostle
