In an age where the supremacy of Christ is being questioned Ajith Fernando presents the clear biblical and theological truth that Jesus is the life, the truth and the only way to the Father. Written in a winsome, solid and readable manner. Highly recommended!

Clear and readable defense of the Incarnation 5 Nov. 2002
By Douglas Groothuis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ajith Fernando is both a busy Christian worker in Sri Lanka (with an international teaching ministry) and a prolific author. He combines solid scholarship, clear writing, and practical guidance on every subject he addresses.
This book is organized around Jesus' affirmation of John 14:6--Jesus as the way, the truth, and the life. The author brings to bear a host of biblical, theological, and apologetic resources to support his thesis that Jesus unique in the world of religions--moreover, that Jesus alone is the Incarnation of God. Along the way, Fernando addresses all the pertient objections raised to this tremendous claim, and does so admirably and without pedantry.
This is an outstanding resource for the Christian who wants to better understand her faith as well as for the unbeliever who wants reasonable answers to her questions about the identity of Jesus Christ.
--Doug Groothuis, Denver Seminary

standard Christian apologetics but nothing too original 12 Mar. 2001
By Michael P. Clawson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I chose to read this book for a theology of missions class and I have to admit that I wasn't very impressed. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad book; it's easy to read and the author has been a Campus Crusade director in Sri Lanka so there is an excellent cross cultural perspective. I guess my disappointment sprung from two things: 1) there's nothing to distinguish this book from the dozens of other books on Christian apologetics dealing with the issue of pluralism, in fact Fernando often doesn't bother to defend his points but instead just refers us to other books that deal with the issues more in depth. This book didn't teach me anything new that I hadn't already heard many other places. 2) Most of the book seemed to be preaching to the choir. The arguments perhaps would be helpful to a young Christian who was concerned by some of the modern objections to the authority of scripture or the divinity of Christ; but it would be of little use to someone who was really struggling with deeper questions of pluralism, and wouldn't provide any useful answers for those who are trying to evangelize to honest, hardcore pluralists. It never addresses the deeper issue of how we can say that Christ is the "only" way to life and happiness when there seems to be such a diversity in human need and experience; and especially when the majority of the world's cultures have evolved without any awareness of the Christian gospel whatsoever. How do we maintain that ultimate truth on these issues is only contained in one very particular set of historical circumstances that happened two millenia ago. I don't have clear answers to these questions yet, and unfortunately Fernando didn't lead me any closer either.
