Have Muslim Friends?

Samuel Green’s Where to Start With Islam: A New Approach to Engaging with Muslim Friends (Sydney: Matthias Media, 2019) is a great resource for Christians wanting to share the gospel with followers of Islam. He proposes that Christians not only start with a better grasp of their own beliefs, but also with an understanding of common assumptions and misconceptions held by Muslims. The chapter titles give you an idea of the ground covered:

  1. Where do we start?
  2. Learning about Islam
  3. Sharing the gospel with a Muslim
  4. Is Jesus God?
  5. The Trinity
  6. Salvation
  7. The death of Jesus
  8. Who is Muhammad?
  9. Muslims and the Bible
  10. History

The book is supported by online resources at Engaging with Islam. The author has also written a number of articles at Answering Islam.

One of the endorsements is from J. Mack Stiles, a pastor in Iraq:

I have lived in the Middle East for 20 years. I don’t know of anyone who has done better work in understanding and answering the challenges of Islam than Samuel Green. Any Christian who wants to respond to Muslims with love and truth needs this book.

Whether you have Muslim friends with whom you might be able to share the gospel, or if you’re just interested in learning more about Islam, this one will be worth your while.
