Engaging with People of Other Faiths


“When I am engaging with people of other religious faiths, I find myself unable to commit to their conclusions or agree with their assessments. Yet at the same time I come away encouraged by the spiritual truths found in their traditions, thrilled by new insights into my own faith, and more passionate than ever about being a disciple of Jesus. The truth is illuminated and elongated in my mind, and my presuppositions and myopic perspectives are challenged and corrected in the process. ¬†Anything less would not be a conversation and would imply that truth is a proposition and not Christ.”

— Leonard Sweet, Nudge, Awakening Each Other to the God Who’s Already There, p.28,
