Christ at the Round Table


Download the preface and forward.

E. Stanley Jones tells how he gathered people from various religions and viewpoints into a series of round table conferences. These persons were brought together not to discuss creeds or to argue positions but to share what they have learned of God through personal experience. This is an important book for our time because our world has become a small community. We must learn to listen to one another in mutual respect but at the same time be prepared to be open about what God means to us personally. In these Roundtable settings, Jones found that the person of Jesus easily stood out as the only One in whom we find Reality. In our time when persons are longing for ultimate truth, Jones makes it clear: “We never become more universal by being less Christian. Truth, by its very nature is narrow and God has only once revealed Himself in a person. Jesus in the ultimate truth available to every age.”
