A Christian's Pocket Guide to Islam
Have you ever watched a TV programme or read a newspaper article where a commentator clumsily illustrates his complete ignorance of Christianity and its claims?How often have you said to yourself, “Well, why should I listen to them when they obviously haven’t got a clue!” How then can we expect to witness effectively to those of the Muslim faith if all that we know of Islam is picked up from passing references in the media? This fascinating book provides Christians with a simple description of the origins of Islam, what Muslims believe and how it affects their attitudes, worldview and everyday life and culture. Practical guidelines are given for relating to Muslims in a culturally appropriate way as well as for witnessing effectively and caring for converts.·New edition with more background, information on the division of Islam and Jihad

Excellent starter guide to ...User Review - Christianbook.com
Excellent starter guide to a Christian view of Islam. Small book lends itself to busy people who want an overview of Islam. I have used this book twice in 2 different churches as a guide for a study of Islam from a Christian perspective. Dr. Patrick does an excellent job of giving basic, clear descriptions of various rituals and beliefs of Muslims. Having been a Muslim before turning to Christ, and with his ongoing ministry experience, he is an excellent resource!
