Successfully evangelizing Muslims requires understanding Muslims and Islam, and the worldview within which they operate. This book provides a good introduction to understanding Muslims for the Christian that knows little about Islam and provides principles to bear in mind when witnessing to Muslims.

PREMISESANDPRINCIPLESOFMUSLIM EVANGELISM
byGerhard NehlsLife Challenge Africa
First published 1991
 
 DEDICATION
In a way this book ought to be dedicated to my friend, fellow labourer and wife Hannelore, whose inputinto this book has been beyond measure, or to my secretary and daughter Petra, who has put up with allthe typing and countless corrections and changes which do happen when writing a book of thiscomplexity.But I like to dedicate this book to our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is so misunderstood and subsequently inthe essence of His Being rejected by Muslims all over the world. Yet He did sacrifice Himself for theMuslim people as much as for us. May it be the purpose and result of this book that many of our dearMuslim friends may get to know Him.But I also like to dedicate this book to each of its readers:“This is my prayer:that your love may abound more and morein knowledge and insight*,so that you may be able to discern what is bestand may be pure and blamelessuntil the day of Christ,filled with the fruit of righteousnessthat comes through Jesus Christ -to the glory and praise of God”(Phil.1:9-11)* Greek ‘
aisthesis’
= perception, sense, intelligence“There are only two kinds of people whom we may call sensible: those who serve God with all theirheart because they know Him; and those who seek God with all their heart, because they don’t knowHim yet”.(Blaise Pascal 1662)
