God’s will is for all people to be saved. Even those we perceive as our enemies, in this case those who practice the faith of Islam. It’s for that reason I wrote about praying for Muslims. We need to see our “enemy” through God’s eyes. Author Wade Akins takes the same position in his new book Share Your Faith with Muslims.
This small volume teaches the reader basic of Islam and the Koran. Akins points out inconsistencies in the Koran and the modern teachings of Islam. Then he shows how to uses this information to share God’s love and salvation with Muslims.
As I read I wishes Akins had included more detail about the Islam faith. Those portions seemed lacking. However, I kept in mind that the purpose of this book is to help believers talk with non-believers. Akins also repeats the basic of the gospel message numerous times, which I found to be too much for me, a believer. Toward the end of the book, in Part IV “Sharing Your Faith” he ties it altogether showing the reader how to use even the Koran as a starting point to begin a conversation about the redemption found in Jesus.
The book concludes with a short study of the book of Matthew. The study is designed for someone who is not familiar with Jesus Christ or the Bible. It can be a good starting study when sharing with a Muslim.
Share Your Faith with Muslims is an important book for Christians in the United States. Whether you plan to have a ministry to Muslims or not, this book will help in understanding the mind of a Muslim. It will prepare for the time God might lead you to talking with someone of the faith of Islam. Every church should have this book in their library.
