Springing from over a decade of teaching and reasearch on Islam and Muslim societies, as well as several decades of interaction and witness among Muslims in Europe and worldwide, Evelyne Reisacher's Joyful Witness in the Muslim World features global perspectives on current Christian engagement with Islam, equipping readers for mission among Muslims and exploring how to move from fear to joy in sharing the gospel.
After emphasizing the importance of joy in the biblical narrative on mission and in human relationship building, Evelyne Reisacher surveys areas where Muslims and Christians encounter one another in the twenty-first century, highlighting innovative models of Christian witness in everyday life. Drawing on insights from global Christianity, this survey takes account of diverse conceptions of Muslim-Christian relations. Reisacher demonstrates that suffering and joy in mission are not in contradiction. Indeed, joy can be a catalyst to relationship and witness in a world threatened by conflicts involving Christians and Muslims.
Jouyful Witness in the Muslim World will help enhance global and local mission among Muslims. It will be of use to professors and students in mission courses, to mission training institutions and organizations, and to mission-minded pastors and mission committees in local churches.

"This book is a joyous surprise! In an era when Islamophobia characterizes so much of Muslim-Christian relations, Evelyne Reisacher describes with gentle passion her joy-touched journey among Muslims. For all who seek to know Muslims, I enthusiastically commend this book. Evelyne anchors her theology of Joyful Witness in the Muslim World in the Trinity, wherein God is joyously celebrating the generous hospitality of his people and of all creation. For Evelyne 'witness' is welcoming all who will come to the bountiful table God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit provides. This book is intended to facilitate worldwide conversations. All who yearn to celebrate the joy of surprisingly open doors for witness among Muslims will want to read this book!"
—David W. Shenk, global consultant, EMM (Eastern Mennonite Missions)
"Missions work among Muslims represents the greatest challenge of evangelical missions. With that in mind, missiologists and missions practitioners owe a debt of gratitude to Evelyne Reisacher for Joyful Witness in the Muslim World, which presents fresh ways to engage and evangelize Muslims. Reisacher reminds us that 'ordinary' Muslims do not necessarily reflect what is written in books on world religions and that befriending and loving Muslims is the most fruitful practice. I highly recommend this book to those who are searching for new ways to bring Muslims to Christ."
—J. Mark Terry, professor of missions, Mid-America Baptist Seminary
