...a great primer on the Islamic faith and does a good job of dispelling common stereotypes about Muslims. A well-done resource for anyone looking for 'Islam 101,' and it could be useful in prepping a series on relational outreach. (YouthWorker Journal)
From the Back Cover
This insiders view of how North American Muslims think and live goes beyond false stereotypes and provides practical suggestions on how to establish friendships that can point to Christ. Since September 11, 2001, Americans are more curious about the followers of Islam. We can no longer afford to be ignorant of such an influential and historical world religion. Muslims Next Door dispels commonly held myths and helps readers to better understand how Muslims think. Author Shirin Taber comes from a multicultural background and has lived in Iran, France, and Turkey, and now in the United States. Stories of her experiences as well as from interviews with Muslims help readers understand the human side of Islam. Each chapter contains questions for reflection to use in group settings. The book also includes a glossary of Islamic terms.

Top customer reviews
Taber tells her own story of being a young Persian woman living in the US who suffered ridicule and shame during the Iranian hostage crisis in the late 70's. But not everyone treated her cruelly. There was simply one person outside her family and religious circle that sought to love and serve her, and that made all the difference.
It is refreshing that the author is up-front about her faith and followership in Jesus Christ, while at the same time celebrating her Muslims heritage and valuing Muslims.
If you are looking for an apologetic against the Muslim faith written by a Christian, this isn't the book for you. If you are looking for a book to help you practically engage the Muslims that you'll meet in the community, it is essential reading.
This wonderful book breaks all the stereotypes that have been associated with Muslims and explains the humanity of everyone.
This reader gives this book and its author five stars along with the congratulations of going into a subject that is never talked about and doing it with a insiders view point and Christian beliefs.
