The chapter shows how Christians in Asia learn from the followers of other religions, in particular, about the paths that can be taken to open up to the divine. The chapter classifies the striving for peace, justice and the preservation of creation as an exploratory spiritual movement and deems Asian missionary spirituality to be an invitation to every Asian Christian to be a presence of God's self-reaching out, a transforming presence, transforming the world for the realization of God's reign, according to the Gospel demands.
