Editorial Reviews

Review

Folk Muslims see life holistically, without the sharp division Westerners generally perceive between the visible material world and unseen spiritual world. The people Jesus healed in first-century Palestine possessed a worldview not unlike that of many modern-day folk Muslims. As Scripture indicates, Jesus healed holistically touching bodies, souls and spirits. A holistic approach to healing prayer among folk Muslims today needs to include at least three types of prayer that heuristically we refer to as breaking prayer, healing prayer, and deliverance prayer. --Caleb Chul-Soo Kim and John and Anna Travis

Our conviction is that peacemaking prepares the spiritual and cultural soil of Islamic societies for hearing and receiving the Gospel. It prepares the society for church formation. --David Shenk and Ahmed Haile

The more a local church is defined by buildings, assets, and institution, the more vulnerable it is to persecution. Persecutors can use threats of taking away these rights and assets as leverage to control the church and silence the voice of witness. The more a local fellowship is defined primarily by community (a network of relationships), the more resistant it is to persecution. --Eric and Laura Adams

From Seed to Fruit: Global Trends, Fruitful Practices, and
Emerging Issues Among Muslims

God is doing some exciting new things in bringing Muslims to faith in Christ and God's people are now using certain new practices to establish fellowships of Muslims who are now followers of Christ. But which of these practices are the most effective and bearing the most fruit? Recently several mission agencies gathered together to discuss this topic. These early discussions were then further developed by a group of field workers in a consultation in the spring of 2007, this research was further analyzed and then compiled in this volume. This book, From Seed to Fruit, contains scholarly research on effective witness to Christ among Muslim peoples.

Book includes a CD-ROM of supplemental resources on global trends and fruitful practices!

Excerpts...

"Our conviction is that peacemaking prepares the spiritual and cultural soil of Islamic societies for hearing and receiving the Gospel. It prepares the society for church formation."
- David Shenk and Ahmed Haile

"I believe that since 9/11, there is a titanic struggle going on in the heavenly realms. It is a struggle that most Christians are completely unaware is taking place. It is not a struggle between Muslims and Christians or between Muslims and the West. Rather, I am talking about a struggle within Christianity itself, a struggle for the soul of the Christian faith."
- Joseph Cumming

"There are both enthusiasts and mild skeptics of the proposal that the great increase in the number of Evangelicals in the Global South will translate into a great increase in pioneer church planters among unengaged Muslims.
