Product Description

Christians and Muslims don't understand each other very well. Muslims have often heard that Christians worship three gods, or that the Injil, the Christian Scripture, has been corrupted. How can Christians explain their faith in a way that Muslims can understand?

In his work with Muslims in central London, Robert Scott has discovered that many are quite open to talking about matters of faith. In this thoughtful and respectful book, he explores common questions and objections his Muslim friends have discussed with him over the years. Ordinary Christians can read this book to better appreciate where Muslims are coming from. Ordinary Muslims can read this book to better grasp what Christians actually believe, and why.

With discussion questions for both Christians and Muslims, this accessible book is a helpful foundation for understanding and conversation. Use it to start start and continue fruitful conversations with your Muslim friends.

Author Bio

Rob Scott oversees international outreach at St. Helen's Bishopsgate Church in London, where he hosts meetings for better understanding with Muslim and Christian partners. He previously worked in Bangladesh with the World Health Organization.

Endorsements

Rob Scott's book meets the accessibility test in three key ways. First, it focuses upon real questions posed by real Muslims to real Christians on a regular basis. Second, it provides answers that effectively equip Christians to engage with Muslims in diverse contexts. Third, it uses a style of language that is easily comprehensible for those with little background in the study of Islam. On this basis, this book deserves wide distribution among Christians as they interact with their Muslim friends.
-Peter Riddell,
formerly professor of Islamic studies, London School of Theology

Scott writes with a clear head and winning affection for his Muslim friends. Instead of giving glib, prepackaged responses, he shows how the very shape of the gospel answers Muslim objections to it--and thus he models how attractive the triune God of love is. Very helpful.
-Michael Reeves,
Head of Theology, UCCF

Robert Scott is one of the brightest and most faithful young ministers called to serve the church of Christ today. Here he gives us a very well-written book with which to answer our dear Muslim friends' sincere questions about the biblical faith. His answers are penetrating, faithful and practical, with biblical and historical understanding of the glorious gospel of our King Jesus Christ. He demonstrates a high degree of Christian dignity and a heart full of love for Muslim people around the globe. I highly recommend this excellent work which will help Muslims and Christians everywhere to have a better understanding of their respective beliefs and each other. This important work arrives at a critical moment for building bridges with our Muslim friends. May the Lord use it for his glory and honor among the nations.
-Anees Zaka,
founder and president, Church Without Walls and the Biblical Institute for Islamic Studies, both in Philadelphia

I very much appreciate Robert Scott's gracious, considered and biblical approach to engaging with the common questions posed by his Muslim friends. His confidence in the good news of the gospel and his love and respect for others shine through. This book will be very helpful to Christian students and others, as we seek to engage Muslim students with the good news of Jesus Christ.
-Natasha Kasprowicz,
London Team Leader, UCCF

This book will be quite helpful to both Christians and Muslims. Christians can learn from it the questions which Muslims commonly ask, and Muslims can learn how informed Christians answer their toughest questions. Because Robert Scott has worked with Muslims in both Bangladesh and England, he has credibility. I recommend this book for any Christian wanting to understand and befriend their Muslim neighbors.
-Gerald McDermott,
author of Can Evangelicals Learn from World Religions? and God's Rivals: Why Has God Allowed Different Religions?
