What salvation are you talking about?

“Biblical salvation lies not in an escape from this world but in the transformation of this world. . . . You will not find hope for the world in any of the religious systems or philosophies of humankind. . . . The Biblical vision is unique. That is why when some say there is salvation in other faiths too, I ask them — ‘What salvation are you talking about?’ No faith holds out a promise of eternal salvation for the world — the ordinary world — that the cross and resurrection of Jesus do.”
- Vinoth Ramachandra, quoted by Timothy Keller, in The Reason For God (New York, NY: Dutton, 2008), 224.
