This lucid introduction will equip all Christians seeking to reach Hindus with the gospel. Hinduism is a large, complex faith, rooted in the Indian subcontinent and finding many forms of expression. David Burnett brings together a vast array of information concerning the complex (and debated) history of Hinduism; the role of various deities (personal, family, village); the nature of Hindu worship; the role of ghosts and spirits; the ethical constructs and the place of pilgrimage (there are thousands of shrines). For this new edition Dr David Burnett has updated his text and added web-based resources for every chapter along with learning objectives and topics for discussion.
