The issue of religious pluralism has become a focal point of discussion in our post-9/11 world, and in this book Old Testament scholar W. Eugene March helps us understand this pluralism in the context of current biblical scholarship. March, who was awarded a fellowship from the Henry Luce Foundation for his work in this area, hopes this book will bring research and experience together to enable "the understanding and practice of genuine tolerance founded upon a positive appreciation for God's providential gift of religious pluralism."
