|Equipping Christians to understand and befriend Muslims. Tens of millions of Muslims live in the West. As a group they are ethnically diverse, culturally rich, and often wonderfully passionate about life and faith.
The problem is that as Christians we often segregate our lives from them. Many fear getting to know Muslims or--worse--are inherently suspicious. This is a shame, since we live in a day of unprecedented opportunities to interact with Muslims from around the world.
This book will help believers bridge the divide. As Christians what we have to share with Muslims is magnificent and potentially life-changing. For readers with zero knowledge about Islam and zero relationships with Muslims, don't worry: this book is for you. Think of it as a one-stop introductory guide that will help you get a grip on the basics quickly. Reaching Muslims is something we can all do because fundamentally it involves friendship.
This fascinating introduction to the world and ideas of Islam covers demography, theology, culture, politics, justice, and other aspects of Islamic identity, and includes stories and examples.
"In a pithy and accessible style, Nick Chatrath seeks to stimulate Western Christians and churches to view Muslims positively and represent Jesus winningly before them. His book will help reduce the 'fear factor' and the 'ignorance factor' in relating to Muslims and Islam. It offers helpful models for developing positive conversations about Jesus with Muslims." --Bill Musk
