Love Your Muslim Neighbour: Understanding Islam in Today’s World

The Islamic faith is making a significant impact on today’s society, reaching into many areas of life. What should be the Christian response to this? We need to understand the teaching of Islam and its sense of community—we must understand Muslims and their faith.

What is the best way for believers in Christ to share the Gospel of God’s grace to Muslim neighbors and colleagues at work? We must get to know them better and have a positive attitude in seeking to share our faith with them as friends.

In this highly researched and very readable book, Edward Challen provides a wealth of practical pointers, showing just what can be done.
