A Christian's Pocket Guide to Islam: by Patrick Sookhdeo
Author: Patrick Sookhdeo
|Have you ever watched a T.V. program or read a newspaper article where a commentator clumsily illustrates his complete ignorance of Christianity and it's claims? How often have you rolled your eyes and immediately discounted what is being said, saying to yourself "Well, why should I listen to them when they obviously haven't got a clue!" How, then, can we expect to witness effectively to those of the Muslim faith if all that we know of Islam is picked up from passing references in the media?|
This fascinating book provides Christians with a simple description of the origins of Islam, what Muslims believe and how it affects their attitudes, worldview, everyday life and culture. Practical guidelines are given for relating to Muslims in a culturally appropriate way, as well as for witnessing effectively and caring for converts. If you long to reach Muslim friends but are wondering where to start then this is the book for you.
