Roberts spends a great deal of time, in different places throughout the book, talking about the differences between "multifaith" and "interfaith". His goal in hosting these meetings is multifaith: people coming together who passionately believe in their own faith and want to know more about what their neighbors believe. Interfaith, he describes, is simply trying to melt all faiths into one. Roberts has found through these multifaith meetings, three questions are often asked. First, "Why do you believe in God?" Second, "Why do you believe in only one God?" Third, "Why are you a Christian?" He believes there must be solid answers from Christians to these questions if we are going to positively influence other religions. Roberts takes time to describe certain fears in the multifaith journey.Read more ›
When Dallas megachurch pastor Bob Roberts, Jr., met a Saudi prince who asked him what he had done to promote dialog, he felt overwhelmed. Dallas is the capital of Jesusland! Yet when he got home, he noticed mosques, synagogues, temples, and more, right on his doorstep. The supposed Bible Belt has as much religious diversity as any American region. So he took the logical step, reaching out to imams and rabbis for his city's first multifaith sit-down.
This book combines anecdotes of Roberts' personal discoveries, lessons he learned about his own and others' beliefs, and suggestions to build similar experiences across America. Roberts' suggestions are both timely and relevant. The Abrahamic faiths (Christianity, Judaism, and Islam) share a call to love our neighbors, a call shared by most faiths and philosophies. But it's hard to love one another when we don't know one another.
Like me, Roberts distrusts the sort of "interfaith" meetings that enjoyed hip cachet in the 1990s. Too often, these descended into huggy, syncretic pablum in which nobody stood for anything. No wonder interfaith outreach dwindled after 9/11. Roberts prefers the term "multifaith," which reflects his real goal: people who passionately believe their own faith, and passionately want to know their neighbors as real people.Read more ›
Roberts writes: "Everything is everywhere like never before in the history of humanity. The world is changing at a rapid pace, and with it your neighborhood, school, work, mall, and everywhere you go. For the first time in history, the whole world is showing up everywhere and changing the neighborhood." (p. 10)
The whole premise of Bold as Love is that this is a good thing!
"Every great move of God has always involved migration: Noah; Abraham the pilgrim in the Holy Land; Joseph in Egypt; from Egypt to Canaan with Moses and Joshua; David to Jerusalem; and Jesus and his call for the gospel to be taken to the ends of the earth. This is how the sovereign God spread his word all through ancient history - and how he's doing it now." (p. 14)
Roberts' story begins with him being a member of a United Nations think tank that included Turk al-Faisal - a Saudi prince. The Prince challenged Roberts to take steps to bring greater understanding between Christians and Muslims in Dallas, where Roberts lives and pastors. Since he knew no Muslims that would prove to be a difficult task! Undaunted, Roberts set out to host a meeting with two faith leaders: a rabbi and an imam for a 'multifaith' dialogue. That dialogue grew into a series of combined events one weekend at each other's houses of worship that included all three congregations.Read more ›
