I've used this Participant's Guide along with the related DVD for two different church groups: a men's group and an adult Sunday School class. Both groups found that it challenged some of their sterotypes and helped them to look beyond the media hype to better understand Islam and its links to Abraham and Jesus.

The commentary is well done and tries to present another point of view concerning muslims. It is focused on the common ground between Christianity and Islam which is one true God and a mutual respect for Jesus.

Some people might initially feel that by not calling yourself a Christian you are "denying Christ" and thus the scripture in Matthew 10:33 "...but whoever denies me before people, I will deny him also before my Father in heaven..." But lets think about this.
a) Jesus' name is not Jesus Christ like someone's name today is "Bob Smith".
b) Christ is an English rendering of the Greek work Christos, which simply means "Messiah" (Hebrew).
c) The term "Christian" in much of the world has far more cultural connotations than it does spiritual.

So noting item "c", above, many people feel they are born Christian because of the culture in which they were born, and others are born Muslim because of the culture in which they are born.

A key point made in the book is that just as someone who goes to a Christian church must have a personal encounter with Jesus, and just as "Messianic Jews" are accepted by many Christians, we should accept Muslims who come to a personal relationship with Jesus since, after all, their prophet also taught reverence for Jesus.

Another key point is that in dialogues with people from Islamic backgrounds we should share knowledge based on a huge common point - Jesus. As a matter of fact, westerners could learn a LOT from people from the middle east with regards to faith since the Bible came from that part of the world. Culturally we in the west miss some subtleties because of our cultural lenses (Wow, westerners don't know it all! What a thought!)

I strongly recommend that you read this book and keep an open mind.

Awesome resource. A must-read for Christians wanting to understand the history and cultural tensions between Muslims and Christians. We used it to train trips before going into a predominantly Muslim city.

We all need to read this as Christians or Muslims. We shared this with Muslim friends, then asked them to share in our Christian small group with us. We had a wonderful exchange. Who would have thought.
