Gospel Conversations in a Hispanic Setting
Dr. Daniel Sanchez, Distinguished Professor of Missions at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, shares in his book, Sharing The Good News With Roman Catholic Friends, a personal story of how he once won a Biblical argument but lost a relationship. This has happened to many of us, but I think it bears reviewing when it comes to gospel conversations with our Hispanic friends and neighbors.
Dr. Sanchez was asked the question, “What do you Evangelicals believe about the Virgin Mary?” He clearly and precisely shared the differences between biblical evidence and Roman Catholic tradition concerning Mary, and the person he was conversing with had no arguments to counter with. However, that person never returned to his Bible study.
Dr. Sanchez believes he made five strategic mistakes that day.
Using the Bible story of the woman at the well, Dr. Sanchez then balances his personal failure with five steps he believes Jesus took in His gospel conversation with this woman, and I will draw my application after each of these.
