Hinduism is the third largest religion after Christianity and Islam. While its roots are in India, where still 90% of its adherants live, the prevelance of Hindu followers in the U.S. has increased dramatically since immigration changes in 1965.

Here in our final week of our Jesus Is… series, we will describe where Hinduism began, what it teaches, and ways to share the true identity of Jesus with a Hindu. MP3 download.
