In today’s turmoil, witnessing to the Muslim world in a loving way can seem overwhelming. Rather than blunt apologetics, Dr. Abjar Bahkou calls for compassionate evangelism to the individuals who likely know as little about the true teachings of Christ as the average American does about the life of Muhammad. Dr. Bahkou recognizes that this witness calls for mutual understanding. His new book, Shining the Gospel Light on the Quran is a comprehensive beginner’s guide to Muslim-Christian relations.

Inside you'll find an overview of the core tenets of Islam, including its five pillars and Sharia Law. After that, Bahkou offers Christian responses to the tenets outlined, specific answers to Islam's questions about Jesus Christ, and practical steps for sharing the Gospel with Muslim neighbors.

About the Author

Dr. Bahkou is an associate professor of Practical Theology at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. He holds a Ph.D from the Pontifical Institute of Arabic and Islamic Studies in Rome, Italy (2011), and a Ph.D in catechesis and education from the Salesian Pontifical University in Rome, Italy (1998). He has written numerous books and articles and has done extensive translation work from English into Arabic, all with the goal of improving Christian Muslim communication. Bahkou and his wife, Phylan, have three children. His hobbies include spending time with his family, physical fitness and traveling.

This book is valuable in at least 2 ways to every Christian, first by describing Islam with its history, and second by contrasting it to Christianity in such a way that actually describes Christianity in a way you may not have comprehended or appreciated. Upon this foundation, one will find insights of ancient and modern Arabic Christians that will deliver one closer to the title promise of understanding and engaging Muslims in the loving and shining light of the Gospel.
