Can Christians read biblical meaning into qur'ānic texts? Does this violate the intent of those passages? What about making positive reference to the Qur'ān in the context of an evangelistic presentation or defense of biblical doctrines? Does this imply that Christians accept the Muslim scripture as inspired? What about Christians who reside in the world of Islam and write their theology in the language of the Qur'ān--Arabic? Is it legitimate for them to use the Qur'ān in their explanations of the Christian faith? This book explores these questions and offers a biblically, theologically, and historically informed response. For years evangelical Christians seeking answers to questions like these have turned to the history of Protestant Christian interaction with Muslim peoples. Few are aware of the cultural, intellectual, and theological achievements of Middle Eastern Christians who have resided in the world of Islam for fourteen centuries. Their works are a treasure-trove of riches for those investigating contemporary theological and missiological questions such as the apologetic use of the Qur'ān. ""In Christian Exegesis of the Qur'an, Scott Bridger acquaints the English-speaking portion of modern scholarship of Islam with selected instances, early and contemporary, of principles for use of the Qur'an theologically and apologetically to carry forward Arabic-speaking Christians' witness to the risen Christ. This is a new required reading for all Christians who would understand and share Jesus Christ with Muslims."" --Michael H. Edens, Professor of Theology and Islamic Studies, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, New Orleans, LA ""Scott Bridger's Christian Exegesis of the Qur'an is a fascinating book written at the intersection of Christian theology, apologetics, and Islamic studies. The book aims to help Westerners understand and take seriously the issues that Christians are wrestling with in predominantly Muslim contexts. It will be controversial because the questions posed challenge the normativity of our Western theological frameworks. It will be helpful because there is no other book like it. Highly recommended."" --Bruce Ashford, Associate Professor of Theology & Culture, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, NC ""Christian Exegesis of the Qur'an is a rare blend of academic acumen seasoned with practical applicative wisdom. Bridger brings years of linguistic, cultural, and social engagement of Arabic-speaking peoples to bear on the vital subjects related to Christian cross-cultural communication. This piece contributes the often neglected perspectives of Arabic-speaking Christians regarding the Qur'an from both medieval and modern times. Anyone studying Islamic peoples will benefit from this work."" --Keith Eitel, Professor of Missions & World Christian Studies, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, TX J. Scott Bridger is Director of the Jenkins Center for the Christian Understanding of Islam and Assistant Professor of World Religions and Islamic Studies at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He and his family spent twelve years working and studying in the Middle East. He and his wife, Miriam, have five children and reside in Louisville.

Religion has migrated from sidelines to center stage. Stereotypical news images and soundbites do not advance understanding. It is time to listen carefully to our neighbors. Finding Home aids the process. It opens our neighbors' scriptures, allowing them to say what they want to say, how they want to say it. Advocates of any cause value non-adherents willing to consider their ideas in this way. Thoughtful hearers can then decide what, if anything, they find useful.
Those desiring an audience must themselves listen. Truth risks nothing from being questioned. At the least, dialoguers understand each other better. This book is for materialist, agnostic, believer; Daoist, Christian, Native American; the questioning, the committed, the curious.

Inside this work, you will find: Data and extrapolations that highlight likely scenarios for evangelical Christian ministry in the coming four decades Interpreted overviews of the worldwide impact of the first 20 centuries of Christianity Comparisons of the impact of Christianity with those of other world religions Summaries of the past, present and probable future contributions of the different streams of Christianity This book examines trends that will have a major impact on the course of world events for a generation to come.

Religious faith takes many forms. Throughout the centuries and around the globe, human responses to the divine have given rise to a large number of important religions. "The Many Faces of Faith is intended to introduce general readers to the diversity of religion that exists today. In this fascinating and very useful book, Richard R. Losch provides short descriptions of the main beliefs and practices of the world's most influential religious traditions, including the denominational branches of Christianity. The volume is not intended to be a scholary or in-depth work; rather, it focuses on what is essential for understanding each faith covered, and it dispels many of the myths and misconceptions concerning them. The first part of the book is devoted to major world religions and several newer faiths. Chapters cover Hinduism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Taoism and Confucianism, Buddhism, Islam, Mormonism, Baha'i, Jehovah's Witnesses, Neopaganism, Unitarian-Universalism, and the major benign cults. The second part of the book describes the many faces of Christianity, including the Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholics, Lutherans, Anglicans, Reformed Churches, Mennonites, Presbyterians, Baptists, Quakers, Methodists, the United Church of Christ, Holiness and Pentecostal movements, Adventists, and Christian Scientists. The traditions covered in each section are arranged chronologically, according to the time they were founded or developed into their current form. Assuming little prior knowledge of the faiths he discusses, Losch does an excellent job of condensing and clearly presenting each religion. He explains many theological terms that might be unfamiliar to readers, and he provides pronunciation guides for foreign words and names. The book can be read straight through or used as a reference tool for looking up particular faiths.
