Communicating Christ In A Religious Worldby John Thomas Rogers
You hear a knock at your door, and you notice through the window two bicycles parked in your driveway. Two clean-cut young men who appear to be conservative salesman or Christian seminary students dressed in white shirts, ties, and dress slacks wait outside. They inform you that they are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Mormons. What do you say? The fact is that religious people are everywhere from the next door neighbor to the person sitting next to you on the plane. They follow multiple systems of beliefs, and some of them have very different living practices. Not all belong to cults. Some come from common, acceptable religious systems, while others appear extreme. How do you talk to these people and share the message of Christ? How do you even begin to prepare when so many different groups teach so many different doctrines? This book will help you prepare for these conversations. It is not about the teachings of religious groups; plenty of other books outline those teachings. This book explains how to communicate to those in religious systems the love of Christ without a heated debate. You will find Communicating Christ in a Religious World to be a powerful tool which will prepare you to share biblical truth with religious people!

This is a must read for anyone who is serious about sharing their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The author is insightful; obviously very knowledgable about dealing with the various obstacles one encounters when sharing the Gospel. At the same time, his style is very conversational and easy to understand. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
I appreciate the author's objectivity and his spirit with which he wrote the book. it is informative and useful in our understanding and relating to the religious world. I would recommend it to anyone and especially my friends and associates.
