There are three to four million Muslims living in North America, and that ^number continues to grow. Practically speaking, it is imperative that Christians ^know what Muslims believe, so as to better understand how to share the Gospel effectively. ^David Goldmann offers that practical side in a reader-friendly, non-technical way, ^complete with a glossary of Islamic terms. Written with a heart for missions, Islam ^and the Bible will strengthen readers' confidence in sharing their faith, as well ^as build necessary bridges to Muslim friends and neighbors. Here is a helpful book ^on Islam, written by a man who knows what he is talking about! David has had a fruitful ^ministry among Muslims, with many opportunities to apply this knowledge. I promise ^you will benefit. ~ Dr. Erwin Lutzer, The Moody Church, Chicago
Today the Muslim world is no longer "somewhere else"; instead, North America ^has become part of the Muslim world. In the United States alone, four to six million ^Muslims are living in local neighborhoods, sharing workplaces and attending our ^schools and universities. Muslims desire to play an influential role in American ^life, culture, and politics. Muslim traditions regarding morality and justice, however, ^still vary from those of the Christian faith, as we will see in chapter 3. Among ^several differences, in Islamic law a woman is inferior to man, with lesser credibility ^as a witness and having a lesser share in any inheritance (Surah 2:282; 4:11). And ^while in the Judeo-Christian tradition it is not a crime to turn way from one's ^faith, anyone who forsakes Islam is considered an apostate, one who has renounced ^religious faith. According to Muhammad, the penalty is death (Hadith 9:57). Despite ^these conflicts of morality and justice between the Judeo-Christian and Muslim traditions, ^Christians need to reach out with Christlike love and godly wisdom to the Muslim ^community. They need to befriend Muslims and present the good news of Jesus Christ.
DAVID GOLDMANN (B.S., University of Wisconsin; M.Div., Columbia ^International University) is an ordained minister with 24 years of experience living ^in North Africa and making disciples. He spent eight years as a missions specialist ^with Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship, and is presently a missions consultant ^and recruiter for Frontiers. He is author of Islam and the Bible: Why Two Faiths ^Collide. In addition, he conducts the seminars entitled "Understanding and Reaching ^Muslims". He and his wife, Mary Lou, are the parents of four married children and ^five grandchildren and reside in Dublin, Ohio.
What are the differences between Christianity and Islam and how can we ^understand one another? A reader-friendly guide for those who have a heart for evangelism.

Out of a rich background of biblical studies and missionary service ^in North Africa, David Goldmann tells us what our Muslim neighbors believe and equips ^us to be aware, to care and to share our faith.
-Warren W. Wiersbe, ^author and conference speaker

Confused about Muslims and Islam?  ^Wishing someone would make sense of the conflict between Muslims and the West?  ^Wish you could really understand where Muslims 'are coming from?'  Need a book ^that's easy to follow, is fair to the Muslim but doesn't gloss over the facts and ^issues?  This is the book you've been waiting for.
-Greg Livingstone, ^founder and former director, Frontiers
