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.

Named an Outreach Magazine Resource of the Year

Meet the Author

Carl Medearis has extensive experience working and living with Muslims. A highly sought-after expert on Islam, he works with international government and business leaders and speaks at conferences and universities worldwide. After 12 years of living in Beirut, Carl and his family now make their home in Denver, Colorado.
Thirty years of living in and traveling to the Middle East have given Carl Medearis (www.carlmedearis.com) a true insider's view of the region, making him one of a handful of American expert voices in the field of Arab-American and Muslim-Christian relations.

Carl serves as a catalyst for a number of current movements in the Middle East that come together around the life and teaching of Jesus of Nazareth in order to promote peacemaking, as well as cultural, political, and religious dialogue leading toward understanding and reconciliation. He is the author of the acclaimed books on these issues: Muslims, Christians, and Jesus as well as Tea with Hezbollah, and most recently, Speaking of Jesus: the Art of Not-Evangelism.

Carl, his wife, Chris, and their three kids lived in Beirut, Lebanon, for 12 years. Through their unique and strategic approach around the Arab world, they encouraged university students, business professionals, and political leaders to live their lives by the principles and teachings of Jesus in order to change their societies and nations.

Today Carl spends much of his time working with leaders both in the Arab world and in the West with the hope of seeing the Middle East and the West experience full and fruitful relationships through Jesus of Nazareth. He is also the director of The Middle East Studies Program at William Jessup University.

Carl leads a grass-roots movement in America to reconnect with Jesus called "Simply Jesus," anchored in a yearly conference. Speakers include N. T. Wright, Philip Yancey, and Tony Campolo. Learn more at the website www.SimplyJesusGathering.com.

Carl has spoken several times at Harvard, been the Chairman of an Arab League meeting (in Baghdad), preached in mosques, churches, and universities across the Western world, and most of all he's loved Jesus, his wife, and his three kids.

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.

I agree with you so much. The bible tells us EVERY knee wil bow. There is a song that goes...<br> One day every tounge will confess you are God.<br> One day every knee will bow.<br> Still the greatest treasure remains, oh God.<br> With that, we choose you now.<br> I love that song. Any way, peace out!

I highly recommend this book . It separates religion from belief . It is not only an introduction the the Muslim people and how alike we truly are, but how to lead others, especially nonbelievers to Christ. Gives us a way to change the world through His love.

Should be called &quot;How to Suck Up to Muslims In The Us So You Can Convert Them&quot;. 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).

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.

God says in the Bible &quot;Whoever has a voice, let them speak.  He also says, &quot;Don't make anyone stumble.&quot; 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.
