The Intentional Life Trilogy

wto1Wisdom Toward Outsiders, Book One

Understanding Non-Christian Worldviews & Lifeviews

Biblical obligation to introduce the gospel to pre-Christians increases in intensity and opportunity as far away peoples, once reached by missionaries, are now neighbors across the street or office. However, their worldviews, religions, and cultures present formidable blocks in presenting the Lord Jesus Christ empathetically and effectively.

WISDOM TOWARD OUTSIDERS consist of two books on cross-cultural apologetics and worldview evangelism, along with a workbook. Book One helps readers understand neighbors found in non-Christian worldviews and lifeviews. Book Two equips readers to engage pre-Christian neighbors in evangelism and apologetics.

In the book, Dr. Ramesh Richard, having spent years in academic and evangelistic ministry, frames our understanding of non-Christian worldviews and lifeviews with a biblically-sensitive and intellectually-perceptive approach. He explains how the Lord Jesus Christ may be presented creatively and clearly to those who hold to different assumptions about truth, salvation, and reality.

wto2Wisdom Toward Outsider, Book Two

Engaging Pre-Christians in Evangelism & Apologetics

The colors of our national palette are changing—from a “whitening” to a “blackening” to a “yellowing” to a “browning” of America. However, non-Christian worldview are not changing—people arrive with their worldviews, cultures, and religions. While non-Christian worldviews are not savable, pre-Christian neighbors are reachable like never before.

We need an effective method and experienced approach in engaging pre-Christian “outsiders.” Much can be learned from traditional methods of evangelism and apologetics, but we also need to be more relationally-sensitive & intellectually-perceptive in engaging those outside a Judeo-Christian heritage.

This second volume of WISDOM TOWARD OUTSIDERS builds on the theological foundations and anthropological insights of Book One. Dr. Ramesh Richard here presents a biblical, comprehensive, and practical method of cross-cultural apologetics and worldview evangelism learned from decades of informal witness, formal training and major presentations.
