Muslims and the Gospel

Bridging the Gap

Roland E. Miller

Muslims and the Gospel: Bridging the Gap offers a striking and perceptive study of the major mission task of our time. Christians have become aware that Muslims and the gospel need to be brought together, but have been confused about how that might be done. That is the question this book answers. It meets a crucial need at a crucial time. Roland Miller draws on a lifetime of experience, using an abundance of illustrations, as he develops the theme of bridging the gap. He does this in three parts—the Context, the Bridges, the Task.

In the “Context,” he describes pivotal Muslim views about life principles, about sin and salvation, about Christ and Christians. The gap is visible and real. In “Bridges for the Crossing,” he takes up his core paradigm, the bridge of deep friendship, and the twin spans of restitution and learning. In a sorely needed section, Miller traces how Christians have tried to communicate with Muslims over the centuries and what we can learn from those efforts. “Connecting Muslim and the Message” addresses the practical task. He discusses the profile of a sharing friend, and the approach to Muslims today in terms of wholeness, connection and method. He takes up the hard questions that Muslims ask, as well as the hard issues related to inquirers and new believers. In concluding, Miller calls the task “the Possibility of the Impossibilities,” and urges Christians to test the bridging possibility.

This is a comprehensive work, based on solid theory and down-to-earth practice, with a rarely seen personal approach. A mine of information, it is likely to be a definitive work in the field. Begin or enhance your own Christian sharing with Muslims and the Gospel!
