Many people do not realize that Islam is second numerically to Christianity among world religions. But that may not be the case for long. Since it's beginning in AD 622, it has become the fastest growing religion in the world and may overtake Christianity. The startling reality of this phenomenal growth is that Islam has closed the gap in a relatively short time! The question that is facing Christianity today is--how will the church respond to Islam? This book answers many of the questions raised about Islam since the attacks of September 11, 2001. Glover Shipp briefly reviews Islamic history and reveals Islamic strategy as a world religion. The information contained in this concise book is a wake up call for the church to multiply her global evangelistic efforts and especially among Muslim peoples. We know that the Lord has promised to preserve a remnant of the covenant faithful on earth but He depends upon His church to be vigilant in preaching the good news. If current trends are to be reversed, then Muslims need to see the gospel in the lives of loving Christians as well as hear it proclaimed in spirit and in truth. Many Muslims have a distorted opinion of Christianity and many Christians are predominantly ignorant of Islam. Therefore we must commit ourselves to finding new ways of bridging two vastly different worlds. The answer, the Bridge, is the pure image of Jesus Christ! Only He can save lost mankind, regardless of cultural, political, or economic opposition. Until Jesus returns the real battle rages with the unseen world. Let us never ignore the real enemy. Let us never fail the mission of our true Lord and King. Together we can bridge the two worlds: Christianity and Islam!
