Learn about the backgrounds and practices of these ten non-Christian religions so that you can engage with these significant others in meaningful ways.
A generation ago, most Americans had little or no contact with Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, or any other adherents of non-Christian religions. Now our culture is much more pluralistic. In addition to these "others", many Westerners, disenchanted with Christianity, are more inclined than they were a generation ago to dabble in new spiritual alternatives that were not as readily available here before.
In thirteen film segments, Monte Cox explains how to engage our non-Christian neighbors in conversation. This 3 DVD set and companion study guide booklet will help you become more acquainted with the religious backgrounds of devout non-Christians around you, as well as with the growing number of American people who claim no religious affiliation at all.
Thirteen segments include:
- Preface: Us and Them
- Does God Hear Their Prayers
- Our Jewish Neighbors
- Our Muslim Neighbors
- Our Hindu Neighbors
- Our Buddhists Neighbors
- Our Sikh Neighbors
- Our Bahá'í Neighbors
- Our Jain Neighbors
- Our Native American Neighbors
- Our Chinese Neighbors
- Our Shinto Neighbors
- Bookends: What I Have Learned
