Faiths and Faithfulness
Pluralism, Dialogue, and Mission in the Work of Kenneth Cragg and Lesslie Newbigin
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
'Wood's book is important for its critical survey of key twentieth-century theologians dealing with the theology of religions. Wood constructively develops a Baptist theology of mission by balancing together the contributions of Kenneth Cragg and Lesslie Newbigin, fusing a theology of continuity with a Christological missiological approach. Bringing back mission to the center of theology of religions is Wood's special achievement.'

'Dr. Wood deals with one of the major problems of Christian thought today, the place of Christian mission in a pluralistic world. This is a major contribution to thinking about Christian mission in the modern world, and argues for a committed Christiological approach which is also sensitive to and appreciative of non-Christian faiths. It is an impressive and important book.'
