How to meet a critical need: sharing the gospel with Muslims
There are over three million Muslims living in the United States today. Soon, if not already, you will have Muslim neighbors and coworkers. Does the thought of reaching out to them with the gospel make you nervous? How can you effectively communicate the good news with such large theological differences? The Gospel for Muslims can help make sharing your faith easier than you think.
Thabiti Anyabwile, who is himself a convert from Islam to Christianity, instructs you in ways to discuss the good news of Christ with your neighbors and friends. The Gospel for Muslims allows you to focus on the people rather than the religious system. Meant for the average Christian, it is not an exhaustive apologetic or comparative study of Christianity and Islam. Rather, it compellingly stirs confidence in the gospel, equipping you with the basics necessary to communicate clearly, boldly, and winsomely.
In the first part of the book, Anyabwile gives his testimony. He then discusses the Christian doctrines that Muslims struggle with and why Christians should stand firm on them. He takes the reader to portions of the Quran that affirm the Bible. His passion for people combined with his adherence to scriptural doctrine make his writing fresh.
Throughout the second half of the book, he encourages readers in what they should do and be as they witness. The chapters on hospitality and African-American Muslims are fascinating. Anyabwile gives practical advice on how Christian women can entertain Muslim women. His explanation of why Islam is growing fastest in the African-American community, especially among men, makes sense. His chapter on suffering for Christ was encouraging also.
Pastor Anyabwile writes with a fresh, open, and powerful voice. His experiences of having been a Muslim and of witnessing to Muslims give him authority.
I appreciated his practical, friendly approach. He faces eternal questions with a seriousness sometimes lacking in the evangelical community. Using Matthew 16:24-25, II Timothy 3:12, and I Peter 2:20b-21, he makes a strong case against easy-believism and for being willing to suffer for Christ. His anecdotes show that he has walked this path of suffering that he encourages us to embrace.
I highly recommend The Gospel for Muslims. Debbie W. Wilson, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
