Reaching Muslims

Nick Chatrath

$14.99

Paperback

Tens of millions of Muslims live in the West. As a group they are ethnically diverse, culturally rich and often wonderfully passionate about life and faith. Yet Christians (or those of a Christian background) can behave shamefully towards them, whether by avoiding Muslims or by committing their holy book to the fire. Reaching Muslims is a call to anyone who self-identifies as Christian to develop open-hearted friendships with Muslims. This is a call for positive, not fearful, engagement. This is vital because as Christians what we have to share with Muslims is magnificent and potentially life-changing - Jesus really is great news for everyone! If you have zero knowledge about Islam and zero relationships with Muslims, don't worry: this book is for you. Packed with stories and examples, it is short, simple and in four parts:
- Part I: Fascinating introduction covering stories Muslims tell, demographics, belief, culture, politics and other aspects of Islamic identities.
- Part II: Ideas to foster contact effectively with the Muslim community.
- Part III: Starting from the fact that most Muslims love Jesus, ten ideas for how Christians might help Muslims see Jesus afresh.
- Part IV: Three theological hot potatoes: Should Christians call God 'Allah'? Should those from Muslim background be baptised? Should Christians eat halal meat?

Detailed appendices include a glossary, study guides, and further resources by topic.

Equipping Christians to understand and befriend Muslims

Tens of millions of Muslims live in the West. As a group they are ethnically diverse, culturally rich, and often wonderfully passionate about life and faith.

Unfortunately, as Christians we often segregate our lives from Muslims. We may be fearful, or--worse--inherently suspicious of them. But what we have to share with Muslims is magnificent and potentially life-changing, and we live in a day of unprecedented opportunities to interact with Muslims from around the world. This book will help you build open-hearted friendships with Muslims.

For readers with zero knowledge about Islam and no existing relationships with Muslims, don't worry; this book is for you. This fascinating introduction to Islam covers demography, theology, culture, politics, justice, and other aspects of Islamic identity, and includes stories and examples. Reaching Muslims is something we can all do, and it begins with friendship.


- Publisher

A fascinating introduction covering demography, theology, culture, politics, justice, and other aspects of Islamic identity. It is well illustrated with stories and examples. Nick considers what reasons a Muslim might have for thinking that Jesus is good news. What does the Qur'an say about Jesus? Why do we know that God loves Muslims? He then suggests thirteen 'No Regret Moves' to help build open-hearted friendships and to equip Christians to connect with Muslims, including: Pray in faith for open hearts; Foster curiosity; Show love in action; Invite others into The Story and your story. He deals with three theological hot potatoes - should Christians call God 'Allah'; should a convert from Islam be baptised; and should Christians eat halal meat? Detailed appendices provide sample talks for Muslim audiences, and offer seven specific ways to foster contact with the Muslim community.

Be Careful
1 stars By David , Jun 08 2017
I am not sure if this book is to help Christians share their faith or teach them to be more like a Muslim. 
Can a Christian call God Allaha? (Yes)
Christians eating Halal? (Sure)

Sorry but that did it for me and I have stopped reading this book.

Practical
4 stars By seanb, Jan 28 2013
Here is a book that doesn't just wax lyrical about what's involved in reaching Muslims, or just try to teach you about their faith.

It gives very practical outlines (based on the author's experience - he has had many years involvement with Muslims) of what you could do, what parts of the Bible you could study, what you might struggle with - all the things you might need to give you a head start to do what the book's title aims at: Reaching Muslims.

I've been involved with Muslims for 15 years  so I'm speaking from experience when I say 'highly recommended'
