Muslim Outreach Set
Muslim Outreach Set
The Muslim members of our community need the love of Jesus, but knowing where to start can be intimidating, leaving us asking:
- What is the best way to minister to Muslims?
- How can we introduce our Muslim friends to Jesus in a loving and gentle way?
- How do we answer the tough questions about God ?
Reaching Muslims for Christ requires both an understanding of the Muslim faith and knowing how to bridge the gap between Islam and Christianity.
Use these books to understand the Faith of Muslims, answer questions about God, and share the love of Jesus with them more effectively.
Christ and Islam
Islam is expanding rapidly worldwide. With this rise in conversions arrives the real possibility that the average Christian will eventually work with, live next to, attend school or socialize with converts to Islam. This fact alone underscores the importance for the Christian of understanding the Islamic religion and being able to answer the basic belief systems of the Muslim.
James Beverley provides an excellent resource that introduces the Christian to the basic tenets of the Islamic religion. Formatted to be easy to use and quick to reference, Christ and Islam: Understanding the Faith of the Muslims provides:
- Five easy memory keys that help you learn the basic tenets of Islam
- An overview of the life of Muhammad
- A quick review of the Quran (Islamic Holy Book)
- A picture of Jesus through Muslim eyes
- Specific keys that help you reach the Muslim for Christ
This study demonstrates these points in language suitable for group study. By providing the most current, correct and concise information on Islam, James Beverley has built a resource that bridges the gap from Islam to Christ.
Christ and Islam has 6 chapters and 84 pages.

Dinner with Skeptics
When I arrived at the banquet, my suspicions intensified. A designated place at the end of a long table with my name engraved on a flowery card pointed clearly to my place in the arena. Laura took her seat at the opposite end, made the necessary introductions, and smugly glanced in my direction. With everyone looking intently my way, I took one sip of Diet Coke, breathed deeply, and waited for the trouble to begin. I was certain that something unpleasant was brewing."
And so begins a conversation that Jeff Vines has with a group of people eager to put God and Christianity on trial.
This is a story about a meeting with a young lady named Laura. What makes this story worth telling is that in many ways it's your story and my story. It is the story of humanity and its efforts to discover the answers to the most penetrating questions of our lives. Her questions are universal to all people and all cultures. Laura's story brings the issues to light and illuminates for all of us the path to a happy, successful, productive, and ultimately fulfilling life.
The revised Edition contains the original 10 chapters plus three additional chapters to cover subjects that Jeff added as a result of questions that were often asked of him after speaking with crowds of college students. These chapters are "Why Should I Trust the Bible?"; "Tolerance"; and "Why Doesn't God Kill the Devil?". These chapters continue in the highly readable, conversational way that Jeff handles the tough apologetic questions many people have.
