What does it look like, as a follower of Jesus, to share your faith with Muslim friends and neighbors?

This course, designed for both the individual student and the group learning environment, addresses both the why and how of sharing Jesus with Muslims. Through reading the best sources available and hearing inspiring true stories – from both Christians AND Muslims – students will explore a new way to share life and hope with their Muslim friends and neighbors. Of most importance, the student will finish this class with a great sense of hope – that Muslims do, in fact, come to know the biblical Jesus Christ quite easily when they are presented a clear message.
