|Hindu traditions are diverse and complex. Simple summaries of Hindu beliefs and practices lack appreciation for the allure which captivates Hindus themselves. This collection of papers from seasoned practitioners observes Hindu traditions and Hindu ministry from new angles, introducing new perspectives on ministry in Christâ€™s name that are relevant far beyond the Hindu world. Broad conceptual pictures are presented along with detailed practical advice and introductions to remarkable Hindus who surrendered to Christ and wrestled with the meaning of following Him in their Hindu families. This is the first book to turn to for pointers on sharing Christ with Hindus.
"It is estimated that 86 percent of the Hindus of the world do not personally know a Christian. This illustrates the desperate need to take seriously our calling from God in His Word to do the hardâ€“and sometimes painfulâ€“work of reexamining how we express our faith to people who are so different than us. The Rethinking Forum [headed up by H L Richard] is focused on that very process. This book should challenge your thinking and stimulate you to action." --Greg H.
