This Catalyst Postings article observes the significant presence of Hindus in the US and other Western countries. These newcomers are often the wealthiest and best educated of those who are foreign-born. Because "of their upper-middle-class economic level and professional status, Indians have gravitated to suburban communities....One reason we aren't reaching them is because most Hindus don't have practical needs that are often a doorway to reach other groups. Few.... need housing, food, or clothing. Many (although not all) speak excellent English and are successful in academic and professional spheres."
"Hindus are seldom seeking dogmatic or logical 'truth,' but many are hungry to experience a relationship with God that addresses the needs in their hearts.... Hindus often come to understand Jesus in progressive steps."
This article ends with a number of helpful suggestions about how individuals and churches might reach out to Hindu friends.
