How do you relate to your neighbors who are different from you? 
No, I'm not talking about how much money they make, what fancy toys they have,
or even their ethnicity.
How do you spend time with neighbors who are not Christian?
Maybe they are Muslim, Hindu, Buddhists, or atheist.  Do you keep your distance or just say a passing hello if you meet to cross the street at the same time?
We are no longer separated from other cultures by our countries or nation.  With our global economy, many faiths live in America and most likely just down the street from you.  In Bold as Love, Pastor Bob Roberts, Jr. shows us what is looks like to truly love our neighbor regardless of faith, culture, or nationality.
Bob Roberts, Jr. is the founding pastor of Northwood Church in Keller, Texas.  He has made it his mission to not only teach about sharing your faith with non-Christians, but has also introduced it to his own congregation.  We are reminded that we need to first have relationships with others.  Without spending time with people, we cannot share the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Why would they listen to us?  He and his church have teamed up with a Jewish congregation and a Muslim one.  The not only serve the community together, they also share worship service time.  Not for the sake of converting each other, but to better understand the other faiths and respect the people and their beliefs.
Bob Roberts, Jr. journey has taken him to many corners of the world which he shares in Bold as Love.  We can live out our faith while forging relationships with non-Christians.  It just takes faith!

It is a whole new world just outside your front door. 

Go and embrace others and spread God's love

through acts of kindness and frienships!

I received a complimentary copy of Bold as Love from Handlebar Publishing and Thomas Nelson for my  honest opinion.  I received no further compensation.
