How do we reach a world we know nothing about?

As a student at a Bible college and a graduate of a Christian High School, I look at my schooling and realize I know little to none about religion other then Christianity. As we go about our everyday, we learn more and more about Theology and how the Christian Church began and where it came from; but we forget about the outside world. There is another world outside the walls in which we live our lives. As people prepare for ministry and different Cultures we forget to look at the other religions around us. In order to adequately reach a people group, you must know what they believe, why they believe, and be willing to go live among them. If we know nothing about the people we are trying to reach, how can we honestly reach them to the best of our ability? We need to make ourselves vulnerable and get acquainted with the other religions from around the world; if we do not do this, we will not be able to reach the world for we know nothing about it.
