Many people study in schools that are not primarily designed for this purpose and do not get as concentrated and as strategic an exposure as is offered in this program."

Evangelizing Hindus and Buddhists

Understanding Hindus and Buddhists can be a hard task for those with a Christian background. This booklet helpfully explains key features of Hinduism and Buddhism and synthesises proven advice from successful evangelists. As Buddhism arose in a Hindu context, it is helpful to have guidance on both these religions in one booklet. We pray that this practical guide will be helpful for those hoping to make an impact for the Lord Jesus among adherents of these religions.
