Reaching The World In Our Own Backyard by Rajendra K. Pillai is a guidebook for spreading the Christian faith to Americans whose native cultures may be unfamiliar -- particularly those of Muslim and Hindu backgrounds. From overcoming personal biases; to the do's and don'ts for handling culturally sensitive issues; to starting a ministry dedicated to internationals in within one's own Christian community, Reaching The World In Our Own Backyard is an excellent primer and one which is particularly mindful of human considerations that need to be taken into account when doing Christian outreach work.
This book presents a refreshing look at the way our world has changed, right under our noses. It is well written, easy to read, and promises to be an eye opener for many. It is full of practical ideas on how we can bridge the gap between ourselves and people from other cultures, ethnicities, and religions. Anyone who cares about getting to know people from other parts of the world, as well learning how to sensitively share their faith, should have it.
