Overview

A New Perspective on Reaching Out to Muslims

Despite growing numbers of Muslims and Christians living or working next to each other, major barriers remain. Not only do mistrust and fear get in the way, but so do misunderstandings. It doesn't have to be this way, however.

Carl Medearis provides new insights into the top questions people have about Muslims, Muhammad, and Islam. With practical information and fascinating stories, he shares culturally sensitive ways for Christians to get to know Muslims on a personal level. You will learn:

How Islam's "Pillars of Faith" are lived out in today's world
What the Qur'an says about women
What Muslims think about the Bible and Jesus
How to bring up spiritual matters in conversations
And much more

Rather than focusing initially on the differences between Islam and Christianity, Medearis shows how common ground is the best foundation for friendships and for hearts turning to Jesus.

    Should be called "How to Suck Up to Muslims In The Us So You Can Convert Them". But go ahead, try using this in Muslim countries
    and see how far you get! (Beirut, Lebanon, where the author lived, has always had a large Christian population, so being a missionary 
    there isn't particularly tough).

    Must read!

    I read this book as an assignment and I was very curious to see what Medearis had to say. I started very defensively, but very soon changed my mind. I can really see that he has a great insight on the middle eastern culture and on how to reach and build bridges between our peoples. The book is geared towards missionaries, but anyone who can benefit from understanding their neighbors.

    God says in the Bible "Whoever has a voice, let them speak.

    God says in the Bible "Whoever has a voice, let them speak.  He also says, "Don't make anyone stumble." The times of our day makes it very critical for anyone and everyone to make statements of truth. God does tell us to love everyone including our enemies. Christians and Muslims doe not believe in the same God. Christians and Muslims have very different beliefs in Jesus Christ as the author states in his book.  Christians believe that Jesus is the son of God.  Muslims believe Jesus is a prophet. Big difference.The author suggests we talk to Muslims about Jesus, but tells us to not mention Jesus as the Son of Go to Muslims. The very basics of Christianity is our faith and belief as Jesus as the Son of God. The people of Israel rejected Jesus as the Messiah as the Bible predicted they would.Muslims want Jesus to come back so He can say He was a prophet. I will and I always will proclaim Jesus as the Messiah. Why would the author suggest that I shouldn't. In the end every knee will bow for Jesus Christ as the Son of God as the Bible tells.  Please do no tell  me otherwise.



    me otherwise.

    Getting back to the love of Jesus

    If you are a Christian, you need to read this book. Even if you think you may never cross paths with a Muslim, you still need to read this book.
