Product Description

Islam purports to be God's final revelation to man, a completion of the Jewish and Christian traditions that preceded it. Having grown up around Muslim family members and friends, John Azumah has first-hand experience with the culture, history and holy scriptures of this far-spreading world religion. Azumah speaks with the authority of one who knows the source material intimately and is conversant in the misunderstandings and fallacies both of Muslims toward Christianity and Christians toward Islam. Writing from the heart, he attempts to break down Islam to its component elements to address each from a biblical perspective. My Neighbour's Faith will enable many to understand their Muslim friends and come to a place where they can address repentance and faith in Jesus Christ in a way that their friends will understand.

Publisher's Description

Nowhere else in the world have both Islam and Christianity been more instrumental in shaping the history of a people and their way of life than in Africa. African Muslims and Christians have a lot in common, including kinship ties, shared languages and citizenship. Yet, despite the centuries of deep historical links and harmonious existence between the two religions, new challenges threaten this harmony. Conflicts involving Christians and Muslims in places like Sudan, Nigeria and Ivory Coast are common. These conflicts are fueled primarily by ignorance, stereotyping and prejudice, which in turn breed fear, suspicion and even hatred, in some cases leading to violence. My Neighbour’s Faith sheds light on the beliefs and teaching of Islam by addressing matters of contemporary importance to Christians and the wider non-Muslim audience. It presents the human face of Islam—the face of a close relative, a neighbour, a teacher and even a head of state—in a balanced and critical way that gives a credible view of Islam.
