Christians often feel uneasy about discussing Jesus with people from other backgrounds, fearing they will come across as arrogant or offensive. David Claydon describes how Christians can take the gospel across religious and cultural boundaries in loving, sensitive and respectful ways to develop meaningful friendships with neighbours and colleagues of different faiths. With its sensitive summaries of the historical background, central beliefs and practices of many of the non-Christian religions present in Australia, this book is invaluable for those wanting to understand other belief systems. It also includes cultural do’s and don’ts to help prevent misunderstandings. Contains a study guide.
