This title argues that Christian understanding of salvation is not about a future in heaven but a way of life that shapes the present. This book draws on methods in practical theology. It begins with a deep concern for the threat to the world's future created by tensions between the 'Christian West' and 'Muslim East' and considers the impact these concerns have on attitudes towards Muslims in the West both within and outside of Christianity. "Salvation as Praxis" argues that a Christian understanding of salvation is not simply about a hope for the future in heaven, but about a way of life that shapes the present and works for a better future in this world. The book argues that such ways of thinking about salvation must be given greater prominence when thinking about inter-faith questions. In practice, that should lead the Christian community, in solidarity with their Muslim brothers and sisters, to engage in radical transformative action to make the world a safer and better place for all its inhabitants.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Morris synthesizes this work to contribute constructively to several fields, including soteriology and theology of religious pluralism. The book also fills a significant gap by offering a progressive theology of mission for the twenty-first century. I highly recommend this volume.

Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology
[Wayne Morris'] emphasis on concrete practice as the starting point for communion with others is commendable, as is his respect for diversity.
Theological Book Review
What marks out Morris's work is that his claim to be offering practical theology is exactly that - theology that is worked out as it is lived rather than given and applied. Would that more theology was like this ... This gem of a book has a simple idea that is well developed and offers much fruit to the reader. It deserves to be widely read, and then worked through in practice.
