The LMT Resource Circle team is reccomending Witnessing to Western Muslims - A Worldview Approach to Western Faith, by Richard Shumack. The following review was taken from online vendors:
"This book is for you if you are a Christian who ... has Muslim friends, neighbours or workmates. ...wants to understand how Muslims think about God. ...finds formulaic approaches to witnessing inadequate. ...feels under equipped to share your faith with Muslims.
"This small book is a goldmine of wisdom and experience gathered from Richard's many years of ministry. It invites us to break through simple stereotypes and invites us to think hard about what it is to understand and reach out to people who may be different from us in faith and culture. At the same time it encourages us to see that reaching out like this is not beyond any of us." Greg Anderson, Head of Mission Department, Moore Theological College, Sydney.
"Richard has provided a valuable service to those involved in outreach to Muslims. This book is a unique and insightful contribution to the field. I thoroughly recommend it." Bernie Power, Lecturer, Centre for the Study of Islam and Other Faiths, Melbourne School of Theology.
Richard Shumack has been involved in ministry among Muslim refugees in Melbourne for the last 12 years, and is completing a PhD thesis in contemporary Muslim philosophy at the University of Melbourne. He is currently a research fellow with the Centre for Public Christianity in Sydney, where he now lives with his wife Judy and their four boys."
