Unshackled and Growing by Dr. Nabeel T. Jabbour

Subtitled Muslims and Christians on the Journey to Freedom, Dr. Nabeel T. Jabbour's book invites Muslims to move beyond the legalism found within Islam and experience the freedom of God's grace and truth found only in Christ. In this book, Dr. Jabbour provides a culturally sensitive approach for building bridges for Muslims to understand who Jesus Christ is and how they enter a personal relationship with Him.

Written with a Muslim audience in mind, this book is a helpful resource for Christians who have little or no knowledge of Islam. To that effect, the author uses several Muslim terms that are very familiar to those with a Muslim background. This can confuse the reader at times, causing difficulty in trying to figure out of the objective of the book is to lead Muslims to Jesus Christ, or allow Muslims to remain in Islam and add a little bit of Jesus to their existing beliefs. It becomes clear after reading the book the former is the primary objective of the book.

After working through part one of the book, called Unshackled and moving through part two, called Growing, it becomes very clear Dr. Jabbour's desire is to provide a basis for Muslims to begin exploring the person and work of Jesus Christ as God's only Son who died to save man from sin and that salvation is found in no other person but Jesus. The final part of the book, The Manual: Growing in Christ, provides a solid overview of basic Christian doctrines and disciplines ranging from who Jesus is, having a quiet time, prayer, and scripture memorization. This book is highly recommended not so much for gaining information regarding Islam but for the practical examples of how to share Jesus with a Muslim.

This was a great follow up to his other book (The Crescent Through the Eyes of the Cross: Insights from an Arab Christian). I highly recommend everyone reading this book.

Another great read by Dr Nabeel T Jabbour. I appreciated his other book "The Crescent through the Eyes of the Cross." This one is more focused on non Christians seeking to learn more. Basic, easy to read.

I originally requested to review Unshackled and Growing by Dr. Nabeel T. Jabbour because I'm very interested in North Africa, and I also work with several Muslims. I thought this book might be interesting to read since it's geared toward Muslims who are seeking to learn more about Jesus and not necessarily towards Christians who want to share their faith with Muslims.

Since I've never been a Muslim, I can't speak to how this book can speak to those of the Islamic faith, but I can say that I learned a great deal from this book. Jabbour lays out basic biblical knowledge, explaining historical information and how events in the Bible relate to events in Islam. He uses Arabic words to help convey the meanings of several important concepts. And he pleads with the reader to believe in Jesus as the Saviour. I would recommend this book to others- especially if you think you may work with Muslims in the future. It will definitely give you an insight into what they may be thinking when you approach them with Christianity.

I heard Dr. Jabbour speak several years ago when I was visiting a church in Colorado Springs. His message was compelling, so I purchased the book but never completed it. Recently, I have been preparing to lead a women's Bible study on the book of Galatians, and for some reason, I remembered an illustration in this book and pulled it out. In my study of Galatians, I am reminded of how passionate Paul was that the Galatian Christians not turn away from the simplicity of the gospel of grace they had been taught by him to the bondage of legalism from which he himself had been rescued. "Unshackled and Growing" is a reminder of the stark contrast between the freedom of the gospel of Christ and the bondage to the law--even ones of our own making--in all its wrappings. I recommend this book to anyone--Christian, Muslim or others--who have never known or have forgotten that their hope is in faith alone in Christ alone by God's grace alone. I am reading it again, this time to the finish line, and am enjoying every word!
