The Cross In The Shadow Of The Crescent

Full Product Description

Erwin W. Lutzer’s ‘The Cross and the Crescent’ uses real stories, biblical imperatives and informed insight to take a serious and level headed look at the questions Christians are asking faced with the growing influence of Islam in the world today. Looking at Christians’ fears for the future and the reality of multicultural society, the author explores issues including: How does Islam's growing influence affect me personally? In what ways are our freedoms of speech and religion in danger? How can I extend Christ's love to Muslims around me? This title provides answers to these questions.

Writing in his foreword, Dr Samuel Ezra Naaman of the Department of World Mission, Moody Institute, Chicago sums up the problem of that Christianity face in understanding Islam: “At its beginning… because some of its teachings are similar to Christianity, early Christians mistook Islam as a sect of Christianity.” Later, Luther described the core teachings of Islam as: “vehemently opposed to the teachings of Christianity.”  Yet Dr Lutzer gives hope that Christians can actively engage with Muslims; infact, he writes, disengagement, is no an option.

‘The Cross and the Crescent’ provides encouragement to Christians to be neither hesitant nor afraid, but instead to be passionate about reaching out and sharing the hope and love found in Jesus.

Publisher's Description

Islam is on the rise all over the West, including America. In this compelling new book, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges Christians to see this as both an opportunity to share the gospel and a reason for concern. We have now reached a tipping point - the spread of Islam is rapidly altering the way we live. These changes are cause for alarm, for they endanger our freedoms of speech and religion.

At the same time, this opens an incredible door of ministry for Christians, for Muslims normally do not have access to the gospel in their own lands. In "The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent", readers will discover helpful answers to these questions and more: How does Islam's growing influence affect me personally? In what ways are our freedoms of speech and religion in danger? How can I extend Christ's love to Muslims around me? This is a sensitive, responsible, and highly informative must-read.

"After reading many books on the subject of Islam this is by far the most comprehensive review of the threat to the Church and what Christians must do to survive. America, especially the Church, is not even aware that mosques are taking over empty church buildings and that our freedoms and culture are at stake. It is a wake-up call to Americans, Christians, and all those who appreciate the freedoms we have grown accustomed to and take for granted. A must read!" - Other retailer's reviewer.
