Is Jesus the Only Savior?
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 2005 - 250 páginas
In this timely book for believers, inquirers, and skeptics alike, James R. Edwards faces head-on the question of whether or not Jesus is indeed the sole savior of the world. After tracing the currents of modernity from the Enlightenment to the Jesus Seminar, Edwards contends that the assumptions of the most skeptical historical-Jesus scholars are no more intellectually defensible than the claims of faith. He then assembles extensive support to show that Jesus considered himself the unique and saving mission of God to the world.
Edwards devotes the second half of the book to discussing Jesus as savior in light of contemporary cultural currents, specifically addressing the thorny issues of religious pluralism, moral relativism, postmodernism, and the quest for world peace. Illustrated with real-life stories, Is Jesus the Only Savior? gives a fair hearing to twenty-first-century concerns while upholding historic Christian faith.

This book gives excellent historical and biblical evidence for a logical argument of Jesus as the ONLY savior. His vocabulary is a little tough to follow at times, but he concludes every point with easy to understand examples. This is a great book for Sunday school or small group discussion.
