Every Christian must not be ashamed to affirm that Jesus is the only Savior of the world. Here are the difficulties: How we can say that, when we do not even know how many other existing religions there are? And besides, isn't God all-loving? Isn't love all that matters in salvation? What hinders God from saving as many people through as many ways as possible?

We will find the answers in Romans 1:16-17, when we are exploring what Paul has said about the Gospel and its three unique qualities: it is powerful, it displays God's righteousness, and it is received by faith alone. Once we grasp these, and once we put love and righteousness hand in hand, we will understand why our salvation can be so firm and why the Gospel is so irreplaceable no matter what.

""With joy we note the emergence of a bright, young theological voice from Asia. Because Asia cannot generally afford the luxury of specialist theologians, most of her sharpest theological minds are involved in grassroots ministry. A few pay the price of writing from within that context. The product is vibrant grassroots theology; and this book by Hendry Ongkowidjojo amply testifies to the effectiveness of this approach to theology.""
