Grace for Muslims?: the Journey From Fear to Faith by Steve Bell

“Why should an essentially ‘benign’ religion turn some into ‘demons’?” asked a Muslim journalist. It is a question that is at the heart of the Islamic debate. Alarmist claims are made about these ‘demons’, while the possibility of a peaceful Islam is dismissed. Many are confused about the religion’s contradictory faces. Is it possible for Christians to relate to Muslims without being politically naïve or theologically liberal? Steve believes it is. He shares his own journey and reflects upon how he arrived at the crucial ingredient - grace.
