Many Christians are surprised to learn just how much they have in common with Muslims. This course will help you find common ground with those who follow Islam and specifically walk you through practical steps towards engaging in dialog with those of the Muslim faith, with an eye towards seeking reconciliation.
Participants will need a copy of the book, Muslims, Christians, and Jesus: Gaining Understanding and Building Relationships, by Carl Medearis, for this course.
