Engaging Islam - The Church's Mission
The objective of these resources is to help Christians in the West [especially Anglican Churches in North America] to understand Islam and the challenge which the rise of Islam poses to the Church and her mission.
Every year, there are thousands of people converting to Islam. In the United Sates, some estimates put this as high as 100,000 per year. Of these:
- 4 out of 5 white American converts to Islam are women (The World Almanac and Book of Facts)
- 2 out of 3 are from an Protestant background (p. 22, Pew Report)
- Every year, there are thousands of Muslims migrating to the US.
Interfaith and intercultural dialogues are drawing countless pastors and churches into discussions on Islam and Christ. There is growing concern about emphasis in the evangelical community on dialogue with Islam, while not full comprehending the jeopardy involved.
These resources are available to help Christians deepen their understanding about Islam and develop appropriate Christian responses to Islam. CANA believes that while studying aspects of the Islamic faith we must show God’s love to Muslim people.
