From: Michael Strahan <> If you were to recommend *one* resource for educating oneself on the Muslim religion and specifically how to witness to Muslim immigrants to the U.S., what would it be?

From: Jason Butler <> How about *two* resources?!?! First, for a concise, readable, and well-written overview of Islam, check out "Understanding Islam: An Introduction to the Muslim World," by Thomas W. Lippman (Meridian Books, 1995). It is not written from a Christian perspective, but is VERY well done.

Second, for a little more on Muslim doctrine and on how to answer it from a Christian perspective, check out the apologetical work by Norman Geisler and Abdul Saleeb (Baker Books, 1993).

ANSWER From: "Dr. Jim Romaine" <> I suggest contacting Zwemer Institute of Muslim Studies, <>. They have coueses at many locations around the US and also hold seminars for churches and mission agencies.
