Christianity has traditionally claimed to have the unique truth about God. But Christians have been challenged for two thousand years by the genuine devotion, goodness, and insight of other faiths. Who is right about God? investigates the origins, strengths, and weaknesses of popular views and concludes that no faith has a full understanding of God. Christianity, like other faiths, is a provisional attempt to understand God, and should have the humility to recognise the limitations of its vision.
Duncan Raynor is Anglican Chaplain at King Edward’s School in Birmingham and has worked a parish clergyman and RE teacher since 1982.

This eminently readable, relatively brief, and yet challenging study looks at a variety of types of faith. This is an excellent book for adult group study and discussion. ~ Alice L Erkhardt, Journal of Ecumenical Studies
Duncan Raynor works in one of Britain's most confidently and vibrantly multi-cultural cities, Birmingham, and both in the classroom and outside he has the good fortune to interact with people from many different cultures and religious backgrounds, who are very able and articulate advocates for a wide variety of faith-communities and of views about truth and falsehood in religion. This book is both important and readable, because it has been forged in the daily "real time" interplay between the issues and views that it discusses, and because it is given rigour and intellectual coherence by the gifted author, who has an Oxford training in philosophy, as well as theology. ~ The Very Revd Robert Grimley, Dean of Bristol Cathedral, England; 2005 Woods Fellow, Virginia Theological Seminary, Alexandria, Va
