The Crescent Through the Eyes of the Cross

The Crescent Through The Eyes Of The Cross, unpacks and addresses the issues that describe the worldview of Muslims. It helps the reader to go beyond mere tolerance to developing an understanding and a compassion for Muslims. This book explains what can be done in ways that are sensitive to the Islamic culture and provides suggestions on how to build vital relationships with Muslims. The book is available through Tyndale Publishing House and at Amazon.


“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, paster, author and 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.” - J. Dudley Woodberry, Dean Emeritus and Senior Professor of Islamic studies, Fuller Theological Seminary

“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 Jabbour's 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.” - Dr. Norddin e Al Arabi , professor and author

“This is a very powerful message, and I can't stop talking to my friends about it. I'm very excited about this project, and feel it is the most important book I've worked on in a long time.” - DS, NavPress editor

“I am delighted to see this book published. I wish every Christian in the West could read it, as it adds a dimension of grace to the debates currently being waged over Islam. I know of no other book like it.” - Jim Petersen, missionary and author

“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)
