Motivated by a deep-rooted conviction that the North American church needs to be equipped for this important task, Micah Fries and Keith Whitfield have gathered a group of experts who are deeply invested in successful outreach to their Muslim neighbors. Unlike many resources that explore the topic of Islam as a dominant religion in the Middle East, 'Islam and North America' focuses on the presence of Islam here in North America. Answering questions about the commonalities between Christians and Muslims, freedom of worship, the Qur'an, and Sharia law, this book will equip North American Christians to think about Islam theologically and missionally, engage their Muslim neighbors hospitably, and encourage readers to find new opportunities for missional engagement in their own backyards.
"God is moving in the 21st century to fulfill His mission in unprecedented ways. The gospel is penetrating previously unreached people groups and church growth is accelerating around the world. The world of Islam seems to be the remaining formidable barrier for fulfilling the Great Commission. Yet God, as sovereign over the nations, is moving in amazing ways in using globalization, persecution and political disruption to bring masses of Muslims to America. Islam and North America is valuable tool to help churches and individual Christians understand Islam and how to reach them for Christ in the new sociological context of our own community. Written by an array of seasoned missiologists, and those with cross-cultural witnessing experience, this book will equip Christians to build relationships and seize the privilege of extending the kingdom of God to those long resistant to the gospel." --Jerry Rankin, president emeritus, International Mission Board, senior fellow, Zwemer Center for Muslim Studies
