The rise of Islam (issue 1/12)

"The gospel’s compelling plea is that we should stand for truth and reconciliation: truth in our attempt to understand Islam authentically, avoiding the sin of false witness and reconciliation as a path to restoration of relationships with our Muslim neighbours – and through all of this reconciliation and restoration to God in Christ."
Martin Accad
