Product description

Product Description

You may have heard the expression while growing up "You should never discuss money, politics or religion with other people." and while this may have served previous generations as a good rule of thumb, these days, we are keenly aware of being surrounded by people whose religious beliefs differ from our own, (and the consequences of those differences).

For far too long the social contract of "Let's just not talk about it", has has lead us (collectively) to remain divided, in a world which continues to grow more and more connected, and therefore, (to avoid future conflicts) it is in our best interest to find better ways to have these important conversations with other people whose beliefs may differ from our own. It only takes a short glance at the headlines of the day to see why increasingly, we need to change the status quo and begin interacting with one another on the the topic of religion which has been considered taboo up until now.

In an effort to start people thinking about this important topic, in late 2013, and early 2014, Mark MacLean hosted a pair of workshops called "Is there a Right Way to Talk to Religious People?" and this (short) book is a edited transcript of those workshops.

By being a virtual participant of these workshops, you'll quickly discover some of the most commons strategies for discussing religious beliefs with people of differing opinions, and eavesdrop on discussions of both the pros and cons of these various strategies as they are discussed.

You'll also learn how and why so many of our initial instincts and current strategies (related to discussing beliefs with one another) are so often ill-advise, potentially dangerous, and in many cases, just plain ineffective. By identifying these risk, and giving this topic some forethought, you will emerge from this book with a greater confidence as well as a clearer sense of how you personally, can start talking to anyone who may have beliefs which may differ from your own.

Regardless of your personal beliefs, this book is designed to be a fun and light read, and should give you a new perspective, and a few insights on How to Talk to Religious People.
