“This book addresses a very important area in the lives of most Indian Christians. The
author’s deep commitment to biblical teaching and a perspective that aims at approaching
issues with ‘agape’ love are particularly helpful.”
Bishop Dr Robert Solomon
Bishop of The Methodist Church in Singapore
Here is a useful resource for those seeking to live the Christian life within the culture and traditions of the Indian community. Certain Indian practices and beliefs are clearly incompatible with biblical teaching, due to their religious connotations and associations. At other times, the Indian Christian is confronted with family situations, beliefs and traditions for which guidelines are not given in the Bible. In such situations, Christians may disagree on what to do.
In this instructive and enlightening book, many Indian practices, beliefs and traditions which fall into these grey areas are examined through the lens of a Christian mindset. The main principle involves two propositions — to choose things that edify and aid personal growth (1 Corinthians 10:23) and to choose the good of others over self (1 Corinthians 10:24).
