Christian Barriers to Jesus: Conversations and Questions from the Indian Context

William Carey Library / 2017 / Paperback

Product Description

Hindus often have a high view of Jesus, but they struggle with traditions and customs around Christianity and church. Christian Barriers to Jesus uniquely challenges readers to examine nine barrier-producing Christian traditions from three perspectives:

  • Concerns Hindus commonly raise about the traditions
  • Assumptions Christians may hold about the traditions
  • Teachings of Jesus and Scripture that often question the Christian traditions that confuse, offend, and alienate Hindus from Jesus.

This book suggests that we are not asking deep enough questions about what is essential for following Jesus and what is non-essential human invention. If we truly care about Jesus, we must honestly address where those non-essential traditions unnecessarily alienate millions of people from him.

Author Bio

J. Paul Pennington (MDiv, leadership concentration; EdD in instructional technology) has served in various contexts in leadership training, cultural coaching, and dependency reduction for thirty years. Eight years ago, he began to explore, with Indian colleagues, Christian traditions that seem to alienate Hindus from Jesus. Today he challenges Christians to examine and wrestle with these issues and also advocates for "incarnational believers" who follow Jesus within their own socio-cultural communities. Paul enjoys spending time with his family, especially
playing and exploring nature with his seven adorable grand-kids.
