Understanding the World of Islam and Overcoming the Fears That Divide Us
Break Down Walls and Stereotypes
Growing numbers of Muslims and Christians are living or working next to each other. Still, major barriers remain. Not only do mistrust and fear get in the way, so do misunderstandings. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
In this updated and expanded edition of his groundbreaking book, Carl Medearis provides new insights into the top questions people have about Muslims, Muhammad, and Islam. With practical information and even more inspiring 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 Muslims think about the Bible and Jesus
- How to bring up spiritual matters in conversations
- How events in the Middle East may affect friendships in the West
- And much more
Answering tough questions about terrorism, the global refugee crisis, and other key topics, Medearis shows that focusing on common ground, rather than differences, is the key to reaching out to the Muslims around you.
“I don’t know a more skilled and gracious ambassador for Jesus Christ to the Muslim world than Carl Medearis. I wish every Christian in North America would read Muslims, Christians, and Jesus. This new edition is more timely and more needed than ever!” — Brian Zahnd, author of Sinners in the Hands of a Loving God
