MIS4022-3 Approaches to Muslims

MIS4022 Approaches to Muslims (2 credits)

This course examines seven approaches to sharing the gospel of Jesus with Muslims. Such approaches are used to get a hearing from Muslims, open their hearts, and break down barriers. The methods were developed by workers committed to service and learning in the Muslim world. No one method is the final method; each has its advantages based on such factors as the gifts of the witness, the openness of a particular people, and the educational level of the people. The goal of this course is to enable the student to share the truths of the gospel in a sensitive and meaningful way with the sons of Ishmael.
