Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism are traditionally viewed as the 5 major world religions, though they are certainly not the only ones.
“Religion” is more than simply attending worship or observing certain holidays; it is a culture of shared beliefs, morals, and values that influence individual attitudes and worldviews. The study of world religions involves developing a deeper understanding of that culture, the impact it has on those who adhere to it and, ultimately, our relationships with people of those different world religions.

As with witnessing in any specific context, witnessing to someone of a different world religion first requires developing a real, authentic relationship with that person. In developing that relationship, the witness gains an understanding of that person’s attitudes and worldviews, which inform how the witness should go about sharing the Gospel.
