About the Author:
Phil Parshall is one of the leading authorities on ministry to Muslims. He and his wife, Julie, have lived among Muslims since 1962, first with International Christian Fellowship (now SIM) in Bangladesh and presently in the Philippines. He holds a doctorate from Fuller Seminary and has had Fellowships with Harvard and Yale Universities. He is published in a number of Christian magazines, and has authored nine books.
Parshall's NEW PATHS IN MUSLIM EVANGELISM gave new, biblical meaning to the word "contextualization" and made that word the "hot topic" that it is in Muslim ministry today.
If you want to understand deeply the issues at stake in Christian ministry among Muslims, then you must read this book.
Much has happened in our chaotic world since NEW PATHS IN MUSLIM EVANGELISM was first published in 1981. Muslims of the ultra-fundamentalist variety have terrorized millions. Westerners are perplexed. Are these "Followers of Muhammad" people of peace or are they religious fanatics bent on world domination?
In this important book, Phil Parshall seeks to acquaint the reader with the Muslim, not as a terrorist, but as one of the 1.3 billion who regard Islam as a "way of life" whose main concern is to provide for their families and to live in peace.
Too long the church has been programmed to accept the inevitabilities of meager results in the efforts toward Muslim evangelization. The reasons for this failure in mission must now be probed and resolved as the world today is coming alive to the presence of the Muslim religious community. The author asks the missions world to forsake former presuppositions and to become conscious of God speaking in a new and fresh manner-not in regard to His changeless Word-but in areas of extrabiblical methodology.
Dr. Phil Parshall completed graduate studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (M.A.), Wheaton Graduate School (M.A.), Fuller Theological Seminary (D. Miss.), and Fellowships at Harvard and Yale Divinity School. He has been a missionary among Muslim people for the past 44 years. He also has authoredMuslim Evangelism (Authentic) and Lifting the Veil (InterVarsity Press).
