Not All Roads Lead to Heaven: Sharing an Exclusive Jesus in an Inclusive World by Robert JeffressAlmost 60 percent of those in American evangelical churches believe that many religions can lead to eternal life. But if Jesus is to be trusted when he says that no one comes to the Father except through him, the church is failing in its mission. And its not hard to guess why. An exclusive Jesus just isnt popular in our inclusive world.
Dr. Robert Jeffress calls on Christians to recover the exclusive claims of the one they claim as Lord and Savior, not as a way to keep people out of heaven but as the only way to invite them in. He tackles questions like
- Can people be saved who have never heard of Christ?
- What about those who worship God by another name?
- Do children automatically go to Heaven when they die?
True compassion for non-Christians doesnt lie in letting them go their way while we go ours, but in sharing the only true way with them.

In his autobiography, he mentions how his father gave him a quick authoritarian answer when he questioned limited atonement — that Christ died only for the elect. He went so far as to question if Jesus ever taught the doctrine of limited atonement.

When I was a freshman in high school, I tried out for the varsity basketball team. On the first day of tryouts, the coach ran a scrimmage, periodically sending players into the game to see how they played. When my turn came, I intercepted a pass on the very first play. Then I took the ball the length of the court, skyed over every other player and made the prettiest layup you ever saw. The coach instantly blew the whistle, stopped the game and called me over to the bench. I was walking 10 feet off the ground.
