The reader will be able to communicate Christ to a person who has a cultic or religious background so that the person listening will truly comprehend what is being presented to him

Religious people are everywhere; they follow multiple systems of beliefs, and some of them have very different living practices. Not all belong to cults. Some come from common, acceptable religious systems, while others appear extreme. How does one talk to these people and share the message of Christ? How does one even begin to prepare when so many different groups teach so many different doctrines? John Thomas Rogers’ new release, Communicating Christ in a Religious World ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-306-8), will help readers prepare for these conversations by utilizing a practical approach on witnessing to people in such organizations with the goal of training believers to talk to religious individuals in a positive way.
“The reader will be able to communicate Christ to a person who has a cultic or religious background so that the person listening will truly comprehend what is being presented to him,” the author says. “This involves the reader learning how to properly perceive the terms that the cultic or religious person uses and then respond so that religious person understands the biblical terms properly. That response must be done from a position of love—not attack.”
Rogers has been in ministry for more than 30 years, spending 18 of those years as a missionary in an area of Utah that was 95 percent Mormon. It was during this time he learned the importance of communicating Christ to cultic or religious people. “People desperately need the true God of the Bible,” he says. “Without Jesus, nothing is ahead but spiritual failure and a Christ-less eternity.”
