Mission and Islamic Contexts (MRP3)



Christian mission to Muslims is one of the most significant and controversial issues facing the Church today. This course investigates these complexities historically, theologically, and missiologically, examining key points of overlap and difference between Christianity and Islam in order to reflect upon how Christians might communicate within Islamic contexts most appropriately and effectively. Whether you’re a church leader, a missionary, or just curious about how to engage with Muslims in the West, the Middle East, or beyond, you will find this course extremely valuable in reflecting upon Christian-Muslim mission from a thoroughly evangelistic perspective, with nuanced contextual awareness.
