-Rabbi Marc GellmanI believe the best way to live a religious life is also the best way to gain converts for your religion -- by living a life of humility and compassion rather than arrogant triumphalism. I've been blessed to know many Christians and Muslims who live just this way and who don't use their faith as either a hammer or a sword. These pious friends of mine believe that their faith is true, and yet they've found room to embrace a rabbi in an honest and loving way. I don't think they're distorting their faith by embracing mine. Telling others they're wrong does not make you right. What makes you right is when others who watch you live your life say, "I want to live like that."

I recommend the whole article, which addresses what Rabbi Gellman refers to as the two faith moves; My way or the Highway, and There are many paths up the same mountain, pros and cons of each.
