Book Review: Bold as Love by Bob Roberts, Jr.

This is a good book about a Christian's calling to love people of other religions.  It's full of practical ideas for initiating, deepening, and sustaining multifaith relationships.

I appreciated his words about relational evangelism, with the emphasis being on relationships and sharing life, NOT simply conversion.

I also liked his challenge to love boldly, knowing that God's presence will strengthen and sustain us, even when we are afraid.

The serving others chapter has great wisdom for groups seeking to do social justice work.

It's an easy read for pastors, lay leaders and everyday people who want to bridge cultural gaps in a gospel-centered way.  This book is particularly relevant to people who live in urban areas, where people of multiple religous groups abide.

Disclosure: I received this book from Handlebar Marketing, in exchange for my honest review of the book.
