What people are saying about The Crescent Through the Eyes of the Cross:
This book is both timely and necessary for Western Christians to read and ponder - timely because Muslims are widely perceived as the enemy, necessary because Christians are under command to love the enemy. Jabbour gives faces to Muslims so that we can obey Jesus' command.
Eugene H. Peterson, Translator, The Message Bible
I am pleased to recommend The Crescent Through the Eyes of the Cross by Nabeel Jabbour. By stepping into the shoes of Muslims and looking through their eyes, Jabbour helps Christians understand them in these troubled days, love them as God does, and express their witness more relevantly.

Unfortunately, many Christians follow the confrontational approach with Muslims rather than an approach of compassion, understanding, and love. This is why when I read Nabeel Jabbourís book, I recovered a sense of confidence in myself as a Muslim who is a follower of Christ and began to get rid of my feelings of guilt for coming to Christ from such a stigmatized background. Indeed some of what I read, written by my western Christian brothers, contributed over the years to making me feel like a cultural convict, because they kept undermining the thing by which I culturally live - my worldview, which in no way takes away from my faith in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.
