Endorsements of the Dutch book
Our Christian witness in the Muslim world is being challenged on all sides. But just in time, before one reaches the point of desperation, my friend Jabbour comes out with this extremely valuable and easy-to-read book. I pray that the reading of this book will result in the word "Islam" taking on the new meaning of "I sincerely love all Muslims." Only if this happens will there be hope. Read this book, devour it, and let it transform your thinking. Our generation is worth this.
Anne van der Bijl (Brother Andrew)
Nabeel Jabbour writes more than merely speculatively over the ideas and beliefs of Islam. In his writings he has succeeded to help me see things through the eyes of people who - because they are Muslims - think differently than I do. The respect and understanding that I have gained is a great incentive to make more effort in my communication with Muslims about Jesus and the Kingdom of God. This is a book that does something to you!
Bernard Terlouw, Director of the Dutch Navigators
This book has really touched me - not only because Jabbour has succeeded in showing in a moving way what Muslims really believe and experience, but also because he holds a mirror before my face. How can it be that many Muslims are really impressed with Jesus, but not with Christianity? This question gives food for thought. Everyone who is aware of the challenges of evangelism in our world today should really read this book.

This book helps Christians to gain a better understanding of Muslims. The positive attitude that Jabbour sketches and the challenging reflection that he confronts us with of what church means in a Muslim context, is a real help to Dutch Christians in being a relevant witness in our mixed society.
