Understanding the World of Islam is an eight week journey into the lives of Muslims around the world and in your city. Through the course, you learn about Muhammad and the history of Islam, gain insight into today’s world conflicts, and dispel fears and myths about Muslims. You will also discover the frustrations and desires of Muslims and how to pray for and befriend them. The course will give you God’s heart for Muslims and equip you to reach out to them in Christ’s love. You also will gain a working knowledge of the Islamic faith, how to get involved in reaching out to Muslims, and how to explain your beliefs to Muslims.
The course is based on the book “Encountering the World of Islam”. You will receive a copy of the book and there are weekly readings that will prepare you for class. Each week there will be a presentation on the content of the book as well as guest speakers who will give practical insights to understanding Islam and ministry to Muslims.
Cost for the course is $40. Childcare is offered and is included in the cost of the class.
