MIS4012-3 Christian Ministry in a Muslim Context

MIS4012 Christian Ministry in a Muslim Context (2 credits)

Christian Ministry in a Muslim Context was developed to train Christians to understand how to relate to the Muslim culture. The author writes from experience as a missionary for several years in South Asia and the Philippines. Students are introduced to the significantly different Islamic culture, worldview, and practices and the adjustments a Christian needs to make to appreciate, communicate, and relate to Muslims. Objectives for the course include how to contextualize an individual’s li­festyle to facilitate relevant ministry and how to prepare a contextualized message for sharing the gospel with Muslims. The course helps the student understand the spiritual conditions of the Muslim culture and what is helpful for effective ministry.
