We have framed our discussions around a well-known Second Testament story, that of the Samaritan woman. Thus, our title, Conversations at the Well, signals that people of various backgrounds often encounter one another at pivotal social locations in particular cultures. Whether it is at a first-century well or in 21st-century San Francisco, Christians find themselves in a wide variety of places, talking with their religious neighbors about common problems and questions while sharing their hope in Jesus Christ. Far from leading evangelicals to a position of relativism, respecting and listening to the diversity of Scripture’s witness yields tremendous resources for Christians today as we wrestle with how to be faithful disciples in our particular contexts.
