The tree of fear grows in the land of ignorance.
Muhammad Arif Zakaullah
We often fear what we do not understand. And there is much about Islam that Western Christians do not understand. The resulting fear can breed mistrust and suspicion and create chasms between us.
As disciples of Jesus, we believe we are called to be peacemakers. So how do we build bridges of compassion and respect to cross these chasms of belief and practice?
Understanding Your Muslim Neighbor explores the rise of Islam as a major world religion, what Muslims believe, and how those beliefs are at times similar to Christianity and at other times different. Robert McCroskey also gives tips for showing hospitality to your Muslim neighbors, along with concrete examples of what to sayand what not to saywhen in conversations of faith with your Muslim friends.
