|Gospel for Muslims: An Encouragement to Share Christ with Confidence |
By Thabiti Anyabwile / Moody Publishers
* There are several million Muslims living in the United States today. How can you effectively communicate the good news with them despite profound theological differences? As a convert from Islam to Christianity, Anyabwile offers insight to help you focus on the people rather than the religious system---and communicate your faith clearly and confidently! 144 pages, softcover from Moody.
One of the original plans for the blog was to provide quick reviews of various books that might be of interest. I realized today that there weren’t any reviews posted yet so here is the first one to get us kicked off!
When I first saw this title I assumed that it was going to be one of books that would point out a few verses from the Koran that might be helpful, remind not to say certain things that Muslims might find offensive, and provide other “methods” for sharing my faith with Muslims.
It does do some of that but I was pleasantly surprised by what I found within. Anyabwile focuses upon the power in the gospel and encourages us to have confidence in that power in order to witness effectively to Muslims (or anyone else). He reminds us that Muslims have the same spiritual needs and that same spiritual remedy as any other human being. The book was encouraging and was a great blend of sound theology and good practical advice. I have now read a couple of his books and have heard a few of his presentations and Thabiti Anyabwile is quickly moving up my list of teachers to recommend. I shall begin by recommending Gospel for Muslims: An Encouragement to Share Christ with Confidence to anyone who has a heart for evangelism in general, and for Muslims in particular.
