This series contains a series of lectures on "The Christian Faith and the Non-Christian Religions" delivered at the University of Geneva by Hendrik Kraemer in January and February of 1954. Examining the relationship between Christianity and the world's non-Christian religions, these lectures place emphasis on the ecumenical movement, particularly the rising "interdependence" of different parts of the world, and various scientific, philosophical, and theological attempts to explain Christian theology to non-Christian religions. The lecture series is divided into four distinct sections: lectures 1-4 provide introductory material and relate previous scientific and philosophical attempts at explaining Christianity, lectures 5-8 deal with theological attempts (Survey and Critical Consideration of Various Theological Attempts to Deal with the Problem of Religion and Religions), lectures 11-12 dissect biblical passages and examples in examining Christian relationships with non-Christian religions (Biblical Data on the Problem of Religion and Religions), and lectures 13-14 contain Kraemer's concluding remarks on the subject.
