Vol. 4 The Christian Study of Islam: A Manifesto
Can any alert Christian remain passive towards understanding Islam today? And how can we relate to Muslims unless we have a solid grasp of their religious foundations?
This critical manifesto is based on three premises:
- Study Islam – because we have a scriptural mandate to do so!
- Study it anyway – even though Muslims expect us to give their sources exclusive honour!
- Let Muhammad speak – by finding Islam’s identity in their primary resources!
Dr. Benjamin Lee Hegeman is a founding member and resource staff of The Lilias Trotter Center. The center enables thoughtful Christian engagement with Muslims by bringing seasoned evangelical scholarship and discipleship to students and to practitioners serving among Muslims to equip them for informed, fruitful and enduring ministry.
