The Lord Jesus Christ revealed himself to a young, brash, Pakistani Muslim. But he didn’t just reveal himself; he turned Naeem Fazal’s world upside down. Moving from Kuwait to Charleston, South Carolina, had been an adventure. Surrendering his life to Jesus Christ was actual treason. And yet, Jesus brought Fazal the most powerful peace he had ever experienced: “It filled the room. It grew roots in my heart and in my soul. It intoxicated me.” In this riveting memoir, Fazal describes how God used extraordinary means to bring a young, underachieving, Muslim immigrant through Desert Storm, across the oceans, into college, and ultimately to pastor a Christian church in North Carolina. He demonstrates that no character flaw, no distance, no cultural chasm or despair is too great for Jesus Christ to reach across. Fazal is candid about his shortcomings, practical about the challenges of cross-cultural engagement, and ultimately inspiring that God is capable of far more than we have grown to expect. He says, “Jesus consistently, stubbornly refuses to limit himself to my expectations. Which makes getting to know him an unfolding adventure of epic proportions.” Whether you are a Muslim, Christian, or neither, Ex-Muslim makes a compelling case that life with Jesus Christ is a true adventure.

Woman to Woman
Like many women in the Church, Joy Loewen didn’t fully understand Muslim women or their roles in the Muslim culture and religion. In fact, she was afraid of them and not particularly interested in be friending them. But with prayer, wisdom, and a lot of love, Joy overcame these obstacles, found that she actually liked them, and that many of these women are irresistibly attracted to the love of Jesus. For the last thirty years she has used this knowledge to build authentic connections with Muslim women, reaching out to them in a sensitive, effective way. In this practical and very personal book, Joy shares not only her insights into befriending Muslim women, but many helpful stories from her own experiences. Her goal is to help readers “move from fear to love and compassion” so that they, too, can love as Christ does. Woman to Woman is essential reading for Christians who want to grow in their love for and understanding of Muslims.

Understanding the Koran
What You Should Know about Islam’s Holy Book How is it like the Bible? How is it different? Why is it important? Muslims believe the Koran exists as a literal book in heaven and was dictated to the prophet Muhammad by the angel Gabriel. It is only the length of the New Testament, yet a fifth of the world claims it is the complete revelation of God. To most Christians, though, the Koran remains a mystery. Did you know that the Koran teaches the virgin birth and miracle-filled, prophetic ministry of Jesus? Claims to fully embrace his teachings? It reveres Abraham, Moses, Jonah, and other biblical prophets? Find out how the Koran resembles the Bible—and the drastic ways in which it differs. Understanding the Koran gives you a fascinating essential grasp of Islam’s holy book: where it came from, what it teaches, how Muslims view it, and how the Allah of the Koran compares with the God of the Bible. Cherished as the final, perfect revelation of God’s will by 1.4 billion Muslims worldwide, the Koran has captured global attention. Today, those who read and memorise it may work in your town, shop where you shop, or send their children to the same school your kids attend. What do you know about the holy book that shapes the lives and eternal destinies of your neighbours and a fifth of the world’s population? While some similarities exist between the Koran and the Bible, the differences are striking. Written by a pastor who was born to a Muslim father and raised in Saudi Arabia, Understanding the Koran gives you a fascinating, easy-to-understand overview that will show you:
- Why the background behind the Koran is important
- How the Koran came into existence
- A summary of the main teachings of the Koran, including what it says about Jesus and the crucifixion
- Similarities and differences between Muslim and Christian views of God
- What the Koran teaches about Jihad and holy war
- What the Koran teaches about heaven and hell
More than furnishing you with an essential grasp of Islam’s holy book, Understanding the Koran points you to the one thing that can draw your Muslim friends to Jesus—his love, demonstrated to them through you. Discussion questions enable you to use this book in group studies.

What Every Christian Needs to Know About the Qurán
A look inside the Sacred Book of One of the World’s Fastest-Growing Religions What used to be an exotic religion of millions of people around the world is now the belief system of people living across the street. Through fair, contextual use of the Qur’an as the primary source text, apologist James R. White presents Islamic beliefs about Christ, salvation, the Trinity, the afterlife, and other important topics.

Dreams and Visions
What would you do if Jesus appeared to you in a dream? What if He came to you in a vision and told you to follow Him? What if these visions continued for over thirty days? would you believe? Would you put your trust in him? Would you devote your life to him? Would you if you were Muslim?
Pastor Tom Doyle has spent eleven years as a full-time missionary in the Middle East and Central Asia, spreading the word of Jesus Christ. Throughout his journey he has encountered a staggering number of Muslims who were first introduced to Jesus through a vision or dream so powerful that they eventually turned from their lifelong religion of Islam and embraced Christ as their Saviour. Despite living in a culture where converting to Christianity can result in execution, these former Muslims have found hope, peace, and inspiration that comes from knowing Christ. Their stories will amaze you. Jesus is reaching out to the Muslims and they are responding. Did you know that Iran has the fastest growing church in the world?
Dreams and Visions is a remarkable collection of stories directly from the world of Islam. Doyle not only relates these stories, but also addresses the questions: Why would God use dreams to reach the Muslim world? Can dreams be trusted? What happens after these dreams or visions occur? Travel to the heart of the Middle East to meet new believers who have truly been touched by Jesus in the most miraculous way, through their nightly dreams.
Cross-Cultural Conflict – Building relationships for effective ministry
Whether at home or abroad, communicating with people of other cultures is difficult. It requires new ways of thinking and interpreting the world. When conflict arises, as it often does, the issues become even more confusing. Without a good understanding of how different cultures handle conflict, our best intentions may only make matters worse. With a particular focus on Asian and Hispanic cultures (at home and around the world) and on African culture, Duane Elmer walks readers through various types of conflict and shows how they can be handled effectively and appropriately. Elmer gives numerous stories and examples from his experience and from others’ to show how handling conflict well builds solid relationships. With an eye out for biblical principles, he looks at a variety of sticky questions in Scripture. This is a book not just of theory but of practical models of conflict resolution. Pastors, evangelists, businesspeople, missionaries, students–anyone who wants to communicate more effectively with neighbours and colleagues–will find this book immensely helpful.
Duane Elmer asked people around the world how they felt about Western missionaries. The response? ‘Missionaries could be more effective if they did not think they were better than us.’ The last thing we want to do in cross- cultural ministry is to offend people in other cultures by trampling over what is precious to them in ignorance. Unfortunately, all too often and even though we don’t mean it, our actions communicate superiority, paternalism, imperialism and arrogance. Our best intentions become unintentional insults. How can we minister in ways that are received as true Christlike service? Cross-cultural specialist Duane Elmer gives Christians practical advice for serving other cultures with sensitivity and humility. With careful biblical exposition and keen cross-cultural awareness, he shows how our actions and attitudes often contradict and offend the local culture. He offers principles and guidance for avoiding misunderstandings and building relationships in ways that honour others. Here is culturally-savvy insight into how we can follow Jesus’ steps to become global servants. Whether you’re going on your first short-term mission trip or ministering overseas for extended periods, or ministering cross culturally in your local neighbourhood, this useful guide is essential reading for anyone who wants to serve effectively in multi-cultural settings with grace and sensitivity.

The Challenge of Islam
Mostly only those who have lived within Islamic communities and have studied their primary documents (Qur’an, Hadith and Sira) can appreciate what is happening as revivalist classic Islam spreads its message and activities around the world.
Western Christian religious leaders, preoccupied with domestic issues internal to their own movements, mostly don’t understand and have ignored what is happening to the world as a result of the propagation of Islam. Some hope the whole issue will just go away. Others with a more universalist outlook over-emphasise the similarities and imagine that with minor cultural adjustments, we can all live happily together forever after.
So when the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, suggested that aspects of Shariah Law were inevitable for Britain, other religious leaders briefly noted his comments before returning to former preoccupations. In the same country, when British Baptist pastor, David Pawson said Britain would become Islamic unless the church changed, even evangelical leaders berated him. Some Christian leaders disagreed. But Muslim leaders optimistically suggested that it wouldn’t happen for 5 to 10 years!
Jay Smith, who regularly debates Muslim apologists in the public forum of Hyde Park in London and elsewhere, notes that Christian protestant Theological Colleges are still focused on Reformation controversies of four centuries ago. Although Islam is rapidly gaining traction around the world, not one Christian college which trains the next generation of Christian leaders, is yet, teaching a course on Islamic apologetics.
This short book will help the busy reader to understand what is happening and in general terms, how Christians need to respond. Not to do so could mean that our children, or more certainly our grandchildren, may grow up not in countries which for centuries have been sustained by a Judeo-Christian worldview, but in those increasingly dominated by Islamic ideology. Finally, the reall

The Forgotten Trinity
Recovering the heart of Christian belief, withauthor James R White.
The Trinity is a basic teaching of the Christian faith. It defines God’s essence and describes how he relates to us. The Forgotten Trinity is concise, understandable explanation of what the Trinity is and why it matters. It refutes the cultic distortions of God. It shows us how a grasp of this significant teaching leads to renewed worship and deeper understanding of what it means to be a Christian. And amid today’s emphasis on the renewing work of the Holy Spirit, The Forgotten Trinity is a balance look at all three persons of the Trinity.
