Islam presents new challenges and new questions to Christians and to the West in a post-9/11 context.
^However, in many situations in the world, where Christians and Muslims live peacefully side-by-side as neighbours, political considerations are not uppermost. Challenging us to examine our own attitudes, Colin Chapman considers the issues involved in Christian engagement with Muslims and Islam. He explores, ultimately, how Christians can effectively bear witness to Jesus.


^^This revised and updated edition incorporates brand new material on 'Islamic Terrorism', 'What is Islam?', 'The Qur'anic View of Christians' and 'Explaining Christian Beliefs About Jesus'. It will equip Christians to better understand Muslims and Islam in a rapidly changing world.


^^'Christians who are seeking to relate faithfully and intelligently to their Muslim friends and neighbours will find invaluable resources in this revised and updated edition of Cross and Crescent.'
^David Marshall, Lecturer in Islamic Studies and author of God, Muhammad and the unbelievers


^^'This is one of the best books on Islam available today. Expect it to change you as well as inform you.'
^Bryan Knell


I>^^'Muslims will not be won by sincere superficiality. Through this careful, thorough book burns a desire for God's unveiling.'
^Howard Peskett^

"Is the Muslim my neighbor? For increasing numbers of Christians, the answer is yes. The crescent, emblem of the Islamic faith recognized throughout the world, is gaining prominence in the West, bringing with it a collision of worldviews." "When the cross meets the crescent, what ought to happen? In the newly revised classic Cross and Crescent, Colin Chapman brings sensitivity and humanity to the question that too often incites hostility and suspicion. He introduces Islam in its historical context, its theological assumptions and, most important, its common practice in the West. In this comprehensive, gracious introduction to Islam, you will meet the Muslims in your community and learn how to love these neighbors as yourself."--BOOK JACKET.
