A Muslim Who Became a Christian

"One day I noticed among her books one that I had never seen before. I looked inside and read the beginning-it was the Gospel in Turkish." This would be Muhammed ShUkri's first encounter with the truth of Jesus Christ as testified to in the book of the Christians, the New Testament. It would not be his last. This Muslim and mullah, this dervish and descendant of the prophet Muhammad, from the distant province of Erzerum in the Ottoman Empire, would continue to follow in Jesus' footsteps, leading him to Russia, Sweden, China, Germany, and Bulgaria. He would come to live and work with Americans, Europeans, Armenians, Persians, and Turks from various backgrounds. And his desire that his own Turkish people and Muslims in general should hear the words of the Gospel would never diminish. Here is his story in his own words.

Grace for Muslims

"Why should an essentially ls"benignrs" religion turn some into ls"demonsrs"?" asked a Muslim journalist. It is a question that is at the heart of the Islamic debate. Alarmist claims are made about these ls"demonsrs", while the possibility of a peaceful Islam is dismissed. Many are confused about the religionrs"s contradictory faces. Is it possible for Christians to relate to Muslims without being politically naiuml;ve or theologically liberal? Steve believes it is. He shares his own journey and reflects upon how he arrived at the crucial ingredient - grace.

The Gospel for Muslims

How to meet a critical need: sharing the gospel with Muslims There are over three million Muslims living in the United States today. Soon, if not already, you will have Muslim neighbors and coworkers. Does the thought of reaching out to them with the gospel make you nervous? How can you effectively communicate the good news with such large theological differences? The Gospel for Muslims can help make sharing your faith easier than you think. Thabiti Anyabwile, who is himself a convert from Islam to Christianity, instructs you in ways to discuss the good news of Christ with your neighbors and friends. The Gospel for Muslims allows you to focus on the people rather than the religious system. Meant for the average Christian, it is not an exhaustive apologetic or comparative study of Christianity and Islam. Rather, it compellingly stirs confidence in the gospel, equipping you with the basics necessary to communicate clearly, boldly, and winsomely.

Faith in the Future

Faith in the Future addresses some of the major themes of our time: the fragmentation of our common culture, the breakdown of family and community life, the lack of moral direction, and the waning of religious belief. How, Sacks asks, can we construct a humane social order that honors human dignity and difference, one in which we can be both true to ourselves and a blessing to others? In the confusing state of postindustrial societies in the post-Cold War situation, can we give those who come after us a coherent map of hope? In treating such questions, Faith in the Future is structured in four parts. In the first, "The Moral Covenant, " Sacks touches on the broadest of issues: morality, the family, and the importance of communities in the life of society. In the second, "Living Together, " he asks how we can co-exist while remaining faithful to our distinctive identities and traditions. In the third, "Jewish Ethics and Spirituality, " he sketches some of Judaism's leading themes. "There is such a thing, " says, as an ecology of hope, and it lies in restoring to our culture a sense of family, community, and religious faith.
