How should we respond to the increasing influence of Muslims in UK society? The followers of Islam are making a momentous impact, particularly in education and politics. Some respond with alarm, while others are
indifferent. However, Christians ought to be more discerning and seek to understand what is happening. We need to get to grips with what Islam teaches, and understand its sense of community.
This sensitively written book, together with informative downloadable material, seeks to give Christians an overview of what it is to be Muslim and provides practical pointers on how to show them the love of Christ in a compassionate way, bearing in mind that ‘there is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear’ (1 John 4:18), and Jesus exhorts us to ‘love our neighbour’ (Mark 12:31).
