It’s clear we’re living in times where God is bringing people from all kinds of nations to live in our towns and cities. Many of us have neighbours from Pakistan, Somalia, Iran, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria; the kinds of places where very few followers of Christ exist. What an opportunity!
We often don’t know how to start building meaningful relationships with them, but in her excellent, easy to read new book Jeannie Marie shows us that reaching out to our neighbours doesn’t have to be as daunting as we might imagine.
Drawing on her years of experience both on a Frontiers team and now reaching Muslims in her home country Jeannie helps us capture something of God’s heart to save all the families of the earth. She offers many practical tips and spiritual lessons for engaging in cross-cultural relationships with love and purpose, and also encourages us to consider going to the places in the world with least access to the good news of Jesus.
The book also contains ways to use it in a small group. We highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know how to love Muslim people better!
Available from Amazon.co.uk - Paperback, Kindle and Audiobook
