A Muslim and a Christian in dialogue by Badru D Kateregga( )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 1,910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Millions of Muslims and Christians are neighbors, and they agree that they worship the one and only God. Yet they seldom witness to each other, and the issues they deal with are profound. Rather than an antagonistic interaction, Badru D. Kateregga and David W. Shenk pioneer another way--that of authentic dialogue between friends. This 2011 updated edition includes a new cover, new endorsements and new discussion questions."--Publisher's description

Creating communities of the kingdom : New Testament models of church planting by David W Shenk( )

6 editions published in 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To be the church is to be in mission, for the church is the body of Christ, the Savior. This study on church planting in the book of Acts helps us to understand the first-century church in its mission. St. Luke traces the spread of the church from Jerusalem across Asia Minor and on to Rome. He does not share the whole story of its spread across North Africa, but he does show us the dynamics of the movement. This people of the way -- described by Paul as a third people (1 Cor. 10:32) -- are above all disciples of Jesus Christ. - Foreword

Journeys of the Muslim nation and the Christian church : exploring the mission of two communities by David W Shenk( )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 1,366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Islam and Christianity seem to be at opposite and unbridgeable poles, both committed to world mission. Given the political tension and violent acts that sometimes surround these two major world religions, it is essential for both sides to understand the other--its history, beliefs, traditions, and vision for the future. This invaluable resource from David W. Shenk, an expert in comparative religious studies, examines Islam and Christianity at their deepest spiritual, cultural, and communal levels. It explores the similarities, and yet unavoidable differences found in Isaac and Ishmael, Jesus and Muhammad, the Bible and the Qur'an, Jerusalem and Medina, the Eucharist and the Hajj, the Church and the Ummah. Reflecting years of conversations and dialogue with Muslim friends, this is narrative theology, full of anecdote and personal experience that bridges the poles and builds understanding.Part of the Christians Meeting Muslims series

What happens when North American Mennonite Christians arrive in Islamic Somalia? The answer, according to Peter Sensenig, is that something new emerges: a peace clan. From the first schools and medical work in the 1950s up to the educational partnerships of the present day, Somalis and Mennonites formed a surprising friendship that defied conventional labels. Peace Clan is the story of two deeply traditional communities as they encounter change. How can Somalis apply the profound peacemaking resources of their culture and faith in a society fragmented by violence? And how can modernizing Menno
