"The honour/shame tension is central to many Muslim cultures - but is fundamentally alien to most Westerners." With this pointed observation Bill Musk starts his readers on a fascinating quest to grasp the essential differences between Muslim cultures and the Western worldview.

Dr Musk investigates a number of key themes, including male and female, family and individual, honour and shame, hospitality and violence. In each case, he draws upon his first-hand knowledge of Islamic culture to show how Muslims view such matters: the book is studded with illuminating stories.

This new edition follows the structure of the earlier book, while investigating these themes in greater depth and bringing the whole up to date.

Aren't Christianity and Islam really almost the same? After September 11, 2001, many who would have thought so, drastically changed their mind--on that day Islam became both wrong and evil to many observers. This book acquaints the reader with the differences between Islamic and Western culture, and the similarities between Muslim and Biblical worldviews. Musk explains how Christians can use understanding and sensitivity to avoid cultural gaffes and present seeking Muslims with a Christianity that meets real spiritual needs.
