A New Perspective on Reaching Out to Muslims

Despite growing numbers of Muslims and Christians living or working next to each other, major barriers remain. Not only do mistrust and fear get in the way, but so do misunderstandings. It doesn't have to be this way, however.

Carl Medearis provides new insights into the top questions people have about Muslims, Muhammad, and Islam. With practical information and fascinating stories, he shares culturally sensitive ways for Christians to get to know Muslims on a personal level. You will learn:

Rather than focusing initially on the differences between Islam and Christianity, Medearis shows how common ground is the best foundation for friendships and for hearts turning to Jesus.


"I've known Carl Medearis for many years and have constantly been challenged by the quality of his life and ministry. His heart for those who don't know Jesus is evident to all."
--Mike Bickle, International House of Prayer of Kansas City, and author of Passion for Jesus and Growing in the Prophetic
"I have experienced Carl's compassion for people first-hand. His wisdom and experience give him unique insight into...sharing Christ with the Muslim world."
--Ted Dekker, bestselling author of Skin, House, and Three

"Carl Medearis is one of the most authentic Christians I know. I have spent time with Carl in the Middle East, and my own view of Muslims has been shaped by Carl's living example. I was very moved when I was released from prison, to find that Carl wanted and tried to come to Iran to negotiate my release. I would highly recommend his books so that others can be changed like I have been."
--Dan Baumann, author of Imprisoned in Iran and A Beautiful Way

"With a gracious spirit, Muslims, Christians, and Jesus attempts to outline the differences in these monolithic faiths, and help churches see the most important issue at hand is not assigning blame to terrorist organizations but rather, how do we love people to a real relationship with Jesus. You won't be able to put it down."
--Andy Braner, President of Kanakuk Colorado, author of Love This! and Duplicate This!
