How to meet a critical need: sharing the gospel with Muslims
There are over three million Muslims living in the United States today. Soon, if not already, you will have Muslim neighbors and coworkers. Does the thought of reaching out to them with the gospel make you nervous? How can you effectively communicate the good news with such large theological differences? The Gospel for Muslims can help make sharing your faith easier than you think.
Thabiti Anyabwile, who is himself a convert from Islam to Christianity, instructs you in ways to discuss the good news of Christ with your neighbors and friends. The Gospel for Muslimsallows you to focus on the people rather than the religious system. Meant for the average Christian, it is not an exhaustive apologetic or comparative study of Christianity and Islam. Rather, it compellingly stirs confidence in the gospel, equipping you with the basics necessary to communicate clearly, boldly, and winsomely.
Full disclosure, I requested this book because I was genuinely curious how the author would approach the Islamic faith and the many similarities with mine, the Christian faith. I didn’t read this as a manual of “How to convert Muslims”, which is kind of how this book is written, however I was interested in the more complexities of Islam and how it was similar or different to my faith. The book absolutely provided that, although it also went a little more in depth than I anticipated. I really liked the end highlights of each chapter because it gave me the information I wanted, but over all this book is not written for this purpose. The purpose of the book is how to convert Muslims, which made me a little uncomfortable. I don’t like the idea of how to guides to convert people, because it makes people go in with a formula they think will work every time when that’s not always the case. I’m grateful for this book, and the opportunity to read it!
