Product Description

How can we build bridges with Muslims?

Muslims are our coworkers, neighbors and friends. But Christians don't always know how to build relationships with Muslims.

Fouad Masri provides practical ways for Christians to initiate conversations and develop relationships with Muslims. He offers insights into Muslim culture and helps Christians understand and relate their Muslim friends. Masri addresses seven common questions that Muslims ask about Jesus and the Christian faith, providing sensitive answers that winsomely guide Muslims to Jesus without arguing or awkward debating. With real-life stories of fruitful conversations and genuine relationships, Masri helps readers see Muslims as Jesus sees them, without fear, with love, hope and expectation.

You don't need a Ph.D. in Islam to share your faith with a Muslim. You just need the heart of an ambassador. Discover how in Connecting with Muslims.

Endorsements

I'm grateful for Fouad Masri's Connecting with Muslims. This book shows how Christians and Muslims can connect with one another in real relationships of respect and trust. Fouad is an Arab Christian and a skilled communicator who can explain the cultural differences and bridge the gap between different worlds. He explains where Muslims are coming from in ways that Christians can understand, and he explains Christianity in ways that make sense to Muslims.
-From the foreword by Josh McDowell

How can we share the gospel effectively with Muslims? In Connecting with Muslims, Fouad Masri, an Arab Christian, gives us helpful and practical insights on how we can convey the love of Christ to them. This is not a book of strategies or tactics. It is a guide to what we should understand about Islam and how Christianity may be understood by Muslims, so that we can faithfully represent Jesus. Relying on biblical principles, he shows us how to engage in and maintain fruitful conversations that lift up Christ without causing offense or compromising the gospel.
-Winfried Corduan

Fouad Masri is a good friend and an effective communicator of the gospel to Muslims. Muslims are not 'missions projects' to him; they are people made in God's image. Connecting with Muslims is an expression of that attitude. It's easy to read and it's practical. It effecively demystifies Islam for anyone unfamiliar with it and encourages Christians to share the beauty and truth of the gospel with their Muslim friends.
-Abdu Murray

Editorial Reviews

"We live in a world confused about Islam. Fouad Masri demystifies Islam and shows how to converse and build relationships with our Muslim co-workers and neighbors. He provides practical answers to seven common questions that Muslims ask about Christianity in a way that is nonthreatening and winsome, all the while sharing the biblical hope and love of Christ. With real-life stories, the author takes away the veil of Muslim culture and builds a bridge of trust between the two worlds that reveals the beauty of the gospel of Jesus."
"Full of evangelistic zeal and easy to read, Masri's Connecting with Muslims is a great book for individuals and churches that want to learn more about effectively engaging those of the Muslim faith."
