No Other Gospel is a theological response to religious pluralism. Braaten is intimately acquainted with pluralist, liberal, neo-orthodox, and orthodox views of Christ. Through a series of papers that were later put together for this book, Braaten deals with various issues relevant to the place of Christianity among the world’s religions. Braaten makes it clear that he believes that salvation is obtained in Christ alone through faith alone. The pluralist camp, led by John Hick and Paul Knitter, feels that religion should be God-centered as opposed to Christ-centered

Here Carl Braaten argues and demonstrates that a theology may be evangelical without being Protestant, catholic without being Roman, and orthodox without being Eastern. Written from a Lutheran perspective, it is nonetheless a work postdenominational in scope and substance. Braaten focuses on the core of Christianity - faith in Jesus Christ according to the scriptures. He applies the criterion of Christ to many questions of Christian theology today, pointing the way to a more complete and foundational theology for every modern Christian.

With increasing awareness of the permanence of religious pluralism and increasing acceptance of other religions as valid ways to God, some theologians have argued that Christianity needs to abandon its traditional, biblical claim that Jesus is the unique, normative, decisive and final self-revelation of God and the salvation of the world. Braaten's response is an unequivocal reassertion of the exclusive claim of the gospel. To do so, he surveys the range of current options and dives into questions of the uniqueness of Christ, the absoluteness of Christianity, and the universality of salvation. Working with concepts of justification, eschatology, and Trinity, Braaten affirms that the gospel relativizes other religions. The gospel, however, also relativizes Christianity. Thus Christianity's strong claims for Christ need to be tempered by acknowledging that Christians do not know beforehand the final outcome of God's unfolding plan for the world. Although not all will agree, this book is an important call to Christian conscience from a theologian who sees Christian theology teetering on the brink of confusion.
