A practical discerning book
5 stars By Jin Pian , Nov 09 2017
In this book, the writer, Rosemary sookhdeo, gives very practical and discerning guidelines on how to break through barriers to win Muslims for Christ. It's easy to read and shows understanding of the people she has come to know over the years. Rosemary presents a clear picture of he culture of the Muslims and their closeness to the family. That's why conversion of any member in the family brings trouble to them. Rosemary elaborates on the trouble with vivid and horrifying life examples set even in Western developed countries. Hence the Muslim converts need our compassion and prayer support.
I find the appendix with comparison between Islam and Christianity very clear and helpful. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand the Muslim and reach them for Christ.
