David Marshall’s Learning from How Muslims See Christianity booklet, written in 2006 with a Christian audience in mind, addresses the issue of Christian-Muslim relations from the other side of the spectrum. David uses several theological, philosophical, and practical questions and disagreements that Muslims have about Christian beliefs, organizations, and actions, in order to help Christians gain a better understanding of their own faith.
Christians believe they have much to say to Muslims – but can we also learn from listening? Muslims often find Christian theology ridiculous, Christian prayer puzzling, and Christian approaches to society disappointing. Reflecting on why this is poses key questions for our spirituality and discipleship.
This intriguing booklet offers us a challenge. Will we dare to ‘see ourselves as others see us’ and learn from it? Are we prepared to be taught by Muslims how to be better Christians?
