This book compiles the works of “reflective practitioners” who are committed to developing creative approaches of communicating the gospel in culturally sensitive ways to the Buddhist peoples of the world with the hope of seeing them follow Jesus. The five major dimensions of a holistic witness among Buddhist peoples discussed are experiential dialogue, intellectual dialogue, biblical exposition, cultural sensitivity, and economic development.
