Filthy Rich by Manoj Raithatha
Filthy Rich is Manoj Raithatha’s personal story of ruthless ambition, of risk-taking and restlessness. It is the story of one man’s belief that ‘money trumps morals, money equals power’ and his desire to become as rich and powerful as possible – whatever the cost. But it is also the story of what happens when everything falls apart – of new beginnings, re-evaluating priorities in life and emerging a better man as a result.

In the midst of the dirty and dangerous life of work in the brick kilns of Pakistan, hope is rising. Amongst the weakest and the most forgotten of society, hope is taking root and rising up.

Introduction to the South Asian Forum of the Evangelical Alliance
The South Asian Forum of the Evangelical Alliance (SAF) is a team within the Evangelical Alliance, set up to provide a forum for South Asian Christians in the UK to encourage, support and equip each other for mission, and to represent their concerns to Government, media and the wider Church.
Discovering Jesus through Asian Eyes
This eight-week course is based on the Evangelical Alliance booklet Jesus Through Asian Eyes and is published by The Good Book Company. It also has a dedicated website www.discovering-jesus.com.
The course is the first of its kind exploring key questions that the main religions of the South Asian and East Asian Diaspora have about Jesus Christ and the Christian faith. These resources will help churches to answer questions that Asians of other faiths have about Jesus in a culturally appropriate way.
