Format: Paperback
"Today the Islamic world is no longer somewhere else, in some other part of the world; instead Chicago, with its 50 mosques and nearly half a million Muslims, is part of the Islamic world" (p.3).

Authored by two men who have both studied Islam and ministered to Muslims nationally and internationally, this work is the single best resource for learning how to approach Muslims living in the U.S. with the gospel that I am aware of. Written with competence and grace, McDowell and Zaka have produced a marvelous handbook that ought to be read and acted upon by congregations and individuals alike. With Islam in general and the growing Muslim presence within the USA in particular receiving increasing attention, this book is crucial for understanding Muslims in the North American context and for reaching out to them with the love and compassion of Christ.

Composed of four main parts, the last of which is the longest, McDowell and Zaka endeavor to provide the reader with an understanding of the Muslim's background including its historical, cultural and theological aspects (Parts 2 and 3). Here we are introduced to what Muslims believe about revelation, Allah, Jesus, human nature, salvation, and life in the world. Similarities and differences between Islam and Christianity are noted providing a framework within which Islam is to be understood and approached. As is characteristic of this volume throughout, Islamic beliefs and practices are discussed with charity and fairness. While Islamic sources and viewpoints are by no means handled uncritically, yet faultfinding and censure are always subservient to comprehension and improved understanding.

Format: Paperback
The authors have done an excellent job of re-centering our priorities in ministry to Muslims. They focus on friendship and understanding as the keys to effective minstry. The book has a healthy balance of theology and history with practical ministry applications. At Biola University we have used their models for a continuing relationship with Muslims in our area.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great resource to have to understand how Muslims came into existence. It clearly lays out differences and explains how the Muslims view the Bible and Jesus. I was unaware of specific Bible passages that Muslims think were changed to hide references to Mohammad.
One illustration that was very helpful to me is that the Muslims view the Koran as Christians view Christ.
This book will give the reader a clear understanding of Muslims origin, doctrine and culture. It helps to remove any fear or mystery in speaking with them.
