New course – Discovering Jesus through Asian eyes

Discovering Jesus through Asian eyes - Leaders guideDiscovering Jesus through Asian Eyes is a new eight week course being launched in May 2014. It is the first publication of its kind to answer 16 key questions that the main religions of the South Asian and East Asian Diaspora have about Jesus and the Christian faith.

The course, published by the Good Book Company, has been developed by the South Asian Forum (SAF) of the Evangelical Alliance, and will be available in the UK, US and Australia.

The course will help churches respond to enquiries and questions from Asian communities about Jesus, guiding them in using Bible passages to answer questions about Jesus in a culturally appropriate way.

The Discovering Jesus course covers 16 common themes, such as ‘Why does God need a sacrifice to forgive sins?, ‘What do Christians mean by calling Jesus the Son of God?’ and ‘Why do Christians say Jesus is the only way to reach God?’
