Loving Muslims Well, Making the Gospel Clear

Recently, and delightfully, I have been asked by a number of individuals for help in witnessing to Muslims and Hindus. I have had some experience with Muslims and much less with Hindus, but here are a few of the resources that I have on my shelf that have helped me to be sensitive and informed.  

I would add, that Bill Fay’s five questions are an excellent tool and process for both learning about your Muslim and Hindu neighbors and sensitively moving the conversation toward Christ.
