  • Quran And The Christian

    $16.99

    Understanding Islam’s sacred text is integral to understanding your Muslim neighbor
    Cross-cultural missionary and scholar Matthew Aaron Bennett blends the insights of Islamic believers, secular Qur’an scholars, and missionaries to Muslims, making The Qur’an and the Christian like no other resource for Christian ministry to Muslims. Combining these perspectives in one guide better equips Christians to communicate the biblical gospel to friends and neighbors who are adherents to Islam–both in and out of majority-Muslim cultures.

    The Qur’an and the Christian addresses issues both simple and profound, such as:

    – How the Qur’an came to be, including Muhammed and the Qur’an’s textual precursors

    – The major themes of the Qur’an and how these shape the practice of Islam

    – The presence of Bible characters, Jews, and Christians in the Qur’anic text

    – Whether and how a Christian should read the Qur’an

    – Avoiding miscommunication with Muslims when the Qur’an and Christian teaching seem to overlap

    This book will help Christians learn how to explore Islamic faith with missiological wisdom and biblical precision. The Qur’an and the Christian will give believers the insight to deepen friendships, promote understanding, and clarify the biblical gospel among Muslim friends and neighbors.

In Do Muslims and Christians Worship the Same God?, Dr Andy Bannister shares how his journey from the multicultural streets of inner-city London to being a Christian with a PhD in Qur’anic Studies led him to discover along the way that far from being the same, Islam and Christianity are profoundly and utterly different.

  • Jesus Through Muslim Eyes

    $18.00

    Muslims and Christians both love Jesus. This is because Islam and Christianity agree on many of the extraordinary claims about his earthly and heavenly life. Beyond these agreements, however, the Jesus of Islam points down a different road to that of Christianity. The Muslim Jesus wants to you to be a better person by walking a road of passionate devotion to God; the Christian Jesus wants you to be a whole new person by joining him on a road to crucifixion and resurrection. Richard Shumack calls for Muslims and Christians to embrace constructive disagreement about Jesus as the best way to both religious peace and eternal truth.

  • Understanding World Religions

    $49.99

    Globalization and high-speed communication put twenty-first century people in contact with adherents to a wide variety of world religions, but usually, valuable knowledge of these other traditions is limited at best. On the one hand, religious stereotypes abound, hampering a serious exploration of unfamiliar philosophies and practices. On the other hand, the popular idea that all religions lead to the same God or the same moral life fails to account for the distinctive origins and radically different teachings found across the world’s many religions. Understanding World Religions presents religion as a complex and intriguing matrix of history, philosophy, culture, beliefs, and practices. Hexham believes that a certain degree of objectivity and critique is inherent in the study of religion, and he guides readers in responsible ways of carrying this out. Of particular importance is Hexham’s decision to explore African religions, which have frequently been absent from major religion texts. He surveys these in addition to varieties of Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

  • Christianity Cults And The Occult Wall Chart Laminated

    $14.99

    New Cults Comparison Wall Chart: Christianity, Cults & Occult chart

    BARNA SURVEY SHOWS INFLUENCE OF THE SUPERNATURAL ON TEENS. Nearly 75% of U.S. teens have dabbled in some form of psychic activity or witchcraft, according to a new Barna survey of more than 4,000 teens.

    Occult themes, supernatural beings, witchcraft, and spell-casting, are part of American culture – including movies (such as Underworld, The Sixth Sense, The Exorcism of Emily Rose), television programs (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Ghost Whisperer), books (Harry Potter, Goosebumps), and video games (Doom, The Darkness).

    This fold-out chart clearly contrasts Christianity and 11 movements with a wide range of occult connections:
    * Freemasonry
    * Kabbalah Centre
    * Wicca/Neopaganism
    * Satanism
    * Spiritualism
    * Santeria
    * Voodoo
    * Theosophy
    * Anthroposophy
    * Rosicrucianism
    * Eckankar

    Topics compared:
    * Origins (founders, dates, headquarters)
    * Key writings
    * Key beliefs
    * Occultic practices
    * Affiliated organizations
    * Symbols and photos
    * News and controversies

    Bonus sections:
    * Astrology and Horoscopes
    * Glossary of Occult Terms
    * Scriptural Warnings on the Occult

    Some religious groups look harmless, but the Bible says their practices can be spiritually deadly! Many people are attracted to occult groups like the Kabbalah Centre because of celebrities such as Madonna and Demi Moore. Other people don’t know what’s behind Rosicrucianism and Anthroposophy until it’s too late. Pop culture glorifies Wicca and neopaganism. Christians need clear, reliable information on these and other groups to know what’s what and who’s who.

    Many American youth (73%) have engaged in at least one type of psychic or witchcraft-related activity, beyond watching a TV show or movie, or reading their horoscope.

    The Barna Group reported on the most common types of occult behaviors:
    Using a Ouija board and reading a book about witchcraft or Wicca – 30% of teens
    Playing a game featuring sorcery or witchcraft elements – 25% of teens.
    Participated in a seance- 10% of teens
    Casting a spell or mixing a magic potion – approx 8% of teens
    Having one’s palm read (30%)
    Having their fortune told (27%).
    Visiting a medium or spiritual guide (9%).
    Consulting a psychic (9%).

    Is someone you know involved with an occultic group? This unique, up-to-date chart can give you the information you need to understand, to pray, and to offer help.
