Beyond Beards and Burqas

Connecting with Muslims

by Martin Goldsmith


Price: £7.99
Publisher:IVP(Inter Varsity Press)
Published:20 November 2009
This is an interesting book written by someone of Jewish origins, but talking about how you can connect with Muslims.
He tells many stories of how he met up with those of the Islamic faith, in airports, hotels, conferences etc. He talks at great length of how he shares his Christian faith with them.
The author has obviously travelled widely in countries where Islam is the predominant faith. He shares his experiences with us to show there are many forms of Islam as there are in Christianity. There are nominal Christians and also in Islam there are many who do not keep to the fasting and prayer, yet they still believe fervently that Islam is the only faith and all others are infidels.
This is an easy to read book and informative.
