Many people have misconceptions and misunderstandings of what Christianity is all about, and perhaps know very little about who Jesus is and what he taught. This discussion guide for those taking part in the Discovering Jesus through Asian eyes course addresses 16 questions that many Asians ask about Christianity, the Bible and what it means to follow Jesus.

• It asks and answers the questions that Asians of all backgrounds have about Jesus and the Christian Faith
• Contains the stories of Asians from all kinds of backgrounds who have found faith in Christ
• Warmly encourages those from other faiths to think about Jesus from the Bible
• Helps people see Christianity is not a western religion
• Sympathetically designed and culturally relevant

I am really excited about this course as it gives Christians today appropriate and sensitive resources with which to engage with colleagues, friends and neighbours from South Asia.

Customer reviews

“A very useful resource not only for people from a South Asian background.”

Though this discussion book is designed primarily for enquirers from a South Asian background we are finding it works well as a baptism preparation resource for Iranian and Kurdish believers and enquirers.


“Answering questions my Asian friends are asking”

(Review written for 'Discovering Jesus through Asian eyes - Sample Pack')

Discovering Jesus through Asian eyes is proving very helpful, as it is answering questions which my Asian friends have but I wouldn't have thought of, such as "Isn't Christianity only for western people?". The Bible passages accompanying the discussion questions relate well and the book of 16 questions is a great stand-alone gift also.
Just two minor challenges I think:
- the discussion guide tackles the 16 questions in 8 sessions, two questions per session. We find it is too much material for one session, so we are going quite slowly and doing just one question per session - perhaps if you aren't sure if you will manage 16 sessions, you should pick and choose the most appropriate questions to address.
- there is an unfortunate typo in most sessions where a third general discussion question is misplaced to be among the questions about the specific Bible passage. If you follow the leaders' guide, you can work it out OK though.
