We can often find it tricky to start a gospel conversation with our Muslim neighbours. Maybe we worry that we don’t understand our Muslim friends’ beliefs and will get caught out, or we might be wary of stepping on cultural toes and offending them, or perhaps we simply have no idea where to start.
In this practical guide to Muslim people and their faith, Robert Scott draws on his experience in Bangladesh and Central London to explain what Muslims believe. He presents the key pillars of Islam, unpacks Muslim beliefs about the Bible and Jesus, and answers questions about the Qur’an, Muhammad and more. This book will help you engage with whatever objections your Muslim friends may have and invite them to discover what the Bible says about Jesus.
If you’ve ever wondered how to open a conversation about the gospel with your Muslim neighbour, this book will provide encouragement to help you to start.
“What a gift for the church! Rob's little book is a model of what learned, living and loving Christian-Muslim engagement looks like. It will give many of us a confidence boost and practical push-start as we seek to share the gospel with our Muslim neighbours. Highly recommended.”
– Dr Daniel Strange, Director, Oak Hill College; Author, Plugged In.
“Rob Scott loves Muslim people and so he wants to share the good news of Jesus with them. And we should want to do the same. This is a brilliant book – not only because Rob is an expert who knows his Sunni from his Salafi, and can quote chapter and verse from the Qur'an – but because he has had many conversations with actual Muslim friends. He knows the things that most intrigue them about Jesus, the caricatures they have of Christians, the caricatures we have of them, the best ways to start a conversation. And he makes it seem so easy. I learned a lot from this little book, and it’s given me confidence to give it a go.

“Using his considerable experience Rob Scott has given us a thorough and accessible introduction to Islam, and more importantly the encouragement to meet and engage more deeply with Muslim friends and neighbours. He has provided an exciting window into the Muslim world that gives enough information to enter into that world and in Christ share the message of hope in Him. I thorough commend this book, and pray that through it many will be drawn into sharing Jesus with Muslim friends.”
