A Copernican revolution from a Christianity-centred to a God-centred picture of the universe of faiths seems to be demanded by the facts of human religious experience. But before adopting the new picture a Christian must be satisfied that his devotion to Jesus as his personal Lord and Saviour is not thereby brought into question or its validity denied. In this and the following chapter I propose to deal directly with this question of the place of Christ, and the christian affirmations about him, within the proposed new understanding of God’s dealings with mankind. It will be well to begin by seeing why this must be the most difficult of all issues for a christian theology of religions.
