Format: Paperback
How do you critique a culturally-based movement, that proclaims that it has freed itself from the trappings of Western culture, while at the same time using all kinds of methods and thinking that are trappings of Western culture?
Chrislam is an attempt to examine the Insider Movement which is a Western export of missionaries who are very much in a hurry, figure that historical efforts are suspect, proclaim themselves as the new 'illuminati', and are sweeping in a huge number of a-theological, a-historical followers under the guise of "all things for the Gospel."
The book is very much a "buyer-beware" treatise, in that it turns over many stones of what this new movement purports to be the "wonder-drug" of missions to Muslims. After reading the book, the reader will be convinced that the "wonder-drug" is not so wonderful. Yet there will be those who will say, "don't bother me with the facts, my mind is made up, and this new thing gives me a lot of warm fuzzies." To such, the book would say, "Wake up and smell the coffee, and see what your warm fuzzies are doing in such places as Bangladesh as they sow havoc in the church there."
As they say in the stock market, "this is a strong buy."

Format: Paperback
The Christlam book is the first book that really covers the topic of the Insider Movement, C5 contextualization, and of course 'Christlam' from an academic and critical viewpoint. This book is not light readings, and really is a compendium of over 25 academic articles that, while understandable by the lay-man, are detailed and referenced enough even for the academic.

There are a lot of journals out there and articles that say a lot of positive things about C5 and Insider Movements, but this is the first compendium that seriously looks at whether or not these missional methodologies are biblical.

If you are involved in Missions, this is a book you should buy and read. Whether missions pastor, elder, missionary, or even missionary supporter, you owe it to yourself, your congregation, and those you steward, to be knowledgeable and educated in these things.

Format: Paperback
Much thanks to the editors and authors for finally giving biblically-sound antidotes to the leaven of Fuller Seminary, the US Center for World Missions (USCWM), Perspectives, International Journal of Frontiers Missions/Missiology (IJFM) and Mission Frontiers journals, Common Ground and Jesus in the Quran seminars, and the literature and practices coming from Navigators and NavPress, Wycliffe Bible Translators-SIL, and Frontiers.

Every person ought to read the chapter, "Flirting with Frankenstein: Insider Movements from the Inside." It is the honest struggle of one Muslim's vain attempt to harmonize the Bible with Islam simply from the internal pressure from his Islamic upbringing, a typical reaction that I have found among Muslims who start to seriously grapple with the truths of the Bible. It is a shame that professing Christians have stooped so far as to deem this impossible juggling act synonymous with biblical faith. It is circumventing the work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Muslims.

A number of the articles in this book are talks that were given during the first two "Insider Movement Conference: a critical assessment" events in 2009 and 2010. It was also from this first event that the idea of Biblical Missiology came into being which has been instrumental in awakening some within the visible Church to the compromise of the Gospel and the willful perversion of Scripture. Chrislam addresses the underlying heretical beliefs and practices of Insider Movement proponents, the gross misinterpretations of selected passages of Scripture in order to find "biblical support" for the the attempted hybrid between Christianity and Islam, and translating back into English actual, already-done, and already-distributed mistranslations for Muslims (behold, your missions money at work!). In addition to all of this it allows former Muslims to speak for themselves.

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Pierrerashad on May 10, 2012
Format: Paperback
This is an incredible exposé and analysis of a destructive trend in missions that has gone practically unchallenged for decades. A diverse lineup of scholar-practitioners tackle many facets of the sources and results of the Insider Movement, the Emergent Church, and other manifestations of the compromise of the gospel under the guise of contextualization. This book clearly demonstrates that this so-called contextualization actually gravely misunderstands the context, and while it came as a reaction against the colonialist missionary model, it actually is neo-colonialist in nature, and is being imposed on the national believers against their will. May God use this book as a prophetic voice to get missions to Muslims back on track.

This book is very informative for those of us unfamiliar with the recent liberties taken by the Insider Movement. It will help those of us who strongly support missionaries through prayer, finances or otherwise to know what exactly we are or are not getting behind. And for supporters with my perspective, it is helpful to distinguish between the sheep and the wolves.

Format: Paperback
Chrislam is a great book for those going to the mission field in the Muslim world. It addresses Missiolgy, Scripture Translation and Contextualizing the Gospel from the best scholars and missionaries in the World. Too many times Scripture is compromised to make it less offensive to the hearers. Should the Gospel message change depending on the culture ? This book addresses this issue and many others that are faced when bringing the Gospel to a Muslim world view and culture. I highly recommend it. Excellent read.
