Full Product Description

For anyone wanting to learn, or share, about where Christianity belongs in a multi-faith world, From Bubble to Bridge gives you the tools and thoughts to help the Church engage with people of other religions. An issue of growing importance in an increasingly diverse world.

Understanding our religious neighbours is more important than ever--but also more challenging.

In a world of deep religious strife and increasing pluralism it can seem safer to remain inside the "bubble" of our faith community. Christian college campuses in particular provide a strong social bubble that reinforces one's faith identity in distinction from the wider society. Many Christians worry that engaging in interfaith dialogue will require watering down their faith and accepting other religions as equally true.

Bethel University professors Marion Larson and Sara Shady not only make the case that we can love our religious neighbours without diluting our commitment, but also offer practical wisdom and ideas for turning our faith bubbles into bridges of religious inclusion and interfaith engagement. Drawing on the parables of Jesus, research on inter-religious dialogue, and their own classroom experience, Larson and Shady provide readers with the tools they need to move beyond the bubble.

Interfaith dialogue is difficult, and From Bubble to Bridge is the timely guide we have been waiting for.

From Bubble to Bridge by Marion H Larson was published by InterVarsity Press in January 2017. The ISBN for From Bubble to Bridge is 9780830851560.
