The chapter makes a study of Christian witness in a multi-religious world from an Asian point of view. It begins by establishing that there is only one God, regardless of by whatever name that God is addressed, that God reaches to humans only through one mystery, which Christian tradition identifies as the Person of Jesus Christ. The chapter argues for the recognition of the salvific role of non-Christian religions and for the proclamation of the Gospel in a spirit of harmony and complementarity. It talks of fresh approach with regard to other religions in the Christian thinking, seeing, feeling, talking and living, that is formulated in the light of the bible, and participating in God's feeling, seeing from the contemporary perspectives.
