This book is an essential resource for the Christian worker committed to sharing Christ's love with Muslims. Four thousand years ago in clustered desert tents festering with rivalry, Abraham banished his slave Hagar and their son Ishmael. Cast aside and embittered, this broken family seemed destined to wander the desert, insignificant and forgotten. But Ishmael grew to father kings and thrives as the cornerstone of Muslim identity. This invaluable book will give you insight into Muslim culture and will help you minister to the followers of the world's fastest growing religion. Your ability to respectfully share Christ's love with Muslims will be strengthened as you read historical accounts and are given practical tools for ministry. - Back cover.
