This is in sharp contrast to Mr. Fry’s article. Moreover, it is alarming that such generalizations are made as ‘all. What are we to obey? When it comes to witnessing, we have the specific commandment from Jesus Christ to go into all the world with the Good News. Helping to fulfill the Great Commission is both a duty and a privilege. We witness because we love Christ. We witness because He loves us. We witness because we want to honor and obey Him.

out of 5 stars Christian Witness Among Muslims. Reviewed in the United States on J Well written book with great detail sharing similarities as well as differences between Christianity & the Muslim Faith.

The book endeavors to provide outreach to Muslim believers with a respectful tone. First written as a guide to the African 5/5(3). Many books have been written on the subject of explaining the Gospel to Muslims and of Christian witness among them.

Christians and Muslims have been at war with one another ever since. What is their holy book. Just as Christians have the Bible, Muslims have the Quran. God is doing a new work among Muslims as He writes a new chapter in the history of His church.

Some tips on witnessing to Muslims. Be courteous and loving. Reflect interest in their beliefs. Allow them time to articulate their views. Christians do not worship three gods, as Muslims often teach.

The validity of the Bible is another point of connection when witnessing to Muslims. Though Muslims do not accept the Bible as the only inspired Word of God, the Qur'an refers to the Bible as a holy book or great book.

However, Muslims themselves believe that Christians worship three gods, and thus we are seen as idolaters. In pre-Islamic times, Allah was the name of a pagan deity. More specifically, Allah was one of gods in the Kabah in Mecca; Allah was the name of the moon god who married the sun goddess (hence the crescent moon in the Islamic religion).

Evangelism is about leading Muslims to Christ. Convincing non-Christians or Evangelicals that Reformed theology is true, falls under the heading of polemics.

Don't confuse the two. When talking to Muslims stick with what all Christians hold in common wherever possible. Leave the internecine fighting among Christians aside when talking to Muslims. Let Christians, while witnessing to their own faith and way of life, acknowledge, preserve and encourage the spiritual and moral truths found among non-Christians, also their social life and culture.

“The Church has also a high regard for the Muslims. The key to witnessing to a Muslim is getting him to understand that Islam does not offer these things and that Christianity most certainly does. In fact, Christianity is the only religion that does. Muslims use much of the same terminology that appears in the Bible: sin, salvation, heaven, hell, one God, law, and punishment.

The two faiths share a common place of origin in the Middle East, and consider themselves to be monotheistic. Christianity is an Abrahamic, monotheistic religion which developed out of Second Temple Judaism in the 1st century CE. All too often, Christians associate only with other Christians. If they share their life in Jesus at all, they tend to do so with the link-minded.

But a new book reveals how important it is to reach out in love to those we may perceive as different from us, or even feel uncomfortable with, including Muslims. A clue to what Islam really believes about Christianity can be found by examining Islam's holy book, the Qu'ran.

In the Qu'ran, Christians are often referred to as among the "People of the Book," meaning the people who have received and believed in revelations from God's prophets. Iraqi Christians, Bearing Witness Love and Forgiveness amid Death and Revenge Stephen M.
