- Make Jesus Central to Your Conversations with Muslims by Alan Shlemon: “The great thing about making Jesus the focus of your conversation is that you already know Him and His message. You don’t need to take a course on Islam. You’re already prepared to talk to Muslims. Sure, you can always learn more about Islam in the future, but for now the Gospel is what Muslims need to hear....
