A Theology of Religions

Daniel Strange speaks about his book Their Rock Is Not Like Our Rock: A Theology of Religions (Zondervan). We talk about how theology, redemptive-history, and apologetics all converge to inform our science of missions and our theology of “the religious other.” Dr. Strange is Academic Vice Principal and Lecturer in Culture, Religion, and Public Theology at Oak Hill College, London.

I was going to respond to your call for essays with a paper on the relationship between apologetics and elenctics but I couldn’t finish it in time. Here is a two partt article from The Calvin Thological Journal by Cornelis J Haak that roughly hits the same points. Essentially, as apologetics is the defense of the faith, elenctics is offense. The word elenctics is used in John 16:8 of the Holy Spirits work to bring conviction upon unbelievers and is also an important concept related to the Socratic method of argumentation. Unfortunately elenctics is hidden away in missiological studies and not out there like apologetics.
