This passionate and scholarly book argues that cultural forms and religious practices are not neutral, and therefore the gospel must be communicated in forms that are formed by the gospel, not by Islam.
"Sam Schlorff has done a monumental review of the history of Protestant missions to Muslims. In this volume he has accurately and brilliantly critiqued all previous approaches. The author describes the various paradigm shifts that have taken place in the larger Protestant history as well as in the evangelical community in particular. Of particular mention is Schlorff's clear-headed thinking concerning the Qur'an and Islamic culture and how it relates to Biblical revelation. This book will be a major reference book for Christians working with Muslims for years to come." Don McCurry, President, Ministries to Muslims
"Two things [have been] missing in the discussion[s] of methodology and cultural sensitivity in Muslim ministry: a historical perspective on evangelism to Muslims and solid theological reflection on current experimentations of contextualization. Samuel Schlorff brings these two perspectives into the discussion in this timely book. This book is a must read for missionaries going to the Muslim world." Rev. Roy Oksnevad, Director, Muslim Ministries, Billy Graham Center, Wheaton College
