Baptists bust inter-faith myths

‘The Baptist Union of Great Britain has put together a new resource dispelling some of the myths of inter-faith collaboration.

The 12 Myths of Inter Faith Engagement addresses issues like whether God only works through Christians, whether other faiths just want to convert Christians, and whether the inter-faith agenda seeks to make one world religion.

The resource will be launched on 19 November during Inter Faith Week.

It is designed for use in small group sessions to allow for discussion around the issues.

The BUGB hopes the resource will give Christians a better understanding of other faiths and a new confidence in how to engage with them.

"“Our prayer is that 12 Myths of Inter Faith Engagement might be a resource to inspire and equip the work to which we are all called," said Ian Bunce, Head of Mission Department at the Baptist Union of Great Britain. “

"By confronting and overcoming the myths that hold us back, we can become more confident in engaging with our neighbours from different religions and cultures and building good relationships.”"

The 12 Myths of Inter Faith Engagement will be available to order through the Baptist Union of Great Britain online storefrom Tuesday 20 November for £3 a copy.
