Overview

How can caring Christians approach Islam?

As relations between Islam and the West grow more polarized, many Christians are nervous about meeting Muslims. How can we possibly overcome years, if not centuries, of mistrust?

Christine Mallouhi, who married into a Muslim family and has lived much of her life in the Middle East, suggests we should emulate St. Francis, who during the Crusades went to be with the Muslims and even shared the gospel with the Sultan.

We should start by seeing Muslims as people, she suggests. "When Muslims are skeptical of our creed, confused by our message and wounded by our warfare, the most credible witness left is our lives. Muslims need to see Jesus, and the only way most of them will see him is in us." Here is a book that gives history, insight and much of the author's own story in offering the Prince of Peace to Muslims.

    Well researched and well lived!

    I've read a lot of books on Islam from many perspectives. A lot of books flooding the market in the last couple years were by people who did some 'research', and some even went and talked to Muslims. But this lady married into the family and has raised her own children in the community. Yes, she's talked to 'radicals' and 'moderates'. There's no axe to grind in this book, no 'preaching', no hidden agenda, only the real love of a real God for real people who have their own real pain. Francis of Asisi is the one who said, 'Preach the Good News at all times, when necessary use words'. She tells the fascinating account of Francis' own attempt to 'wage peace' by proclaiming the message of the Prince of Peace to both sides. He is the one who said, 'Put away your swords, he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.' This is not a treatise on the core doctrines of Islam; it is an exposition of the heart of men and women who struggle to feed and provide for their children. Whatever your religious inclination, if you are part of the human race, this book will move you. It did me.
