Can a new follower of Jesus Christ remain a Muslim and still be a genuine believer? That’s what many in the insider movement are saying. It’s a troubling new trend in Muslim missions. If you’re not familiar with this approach, I encourage you to read the recent Solid Ground article I co-wrote with Greg Koukl called, “Muslim Followers of Christ? – A Look Inside the ‘Insider Movement.’”
A number of my friends and colleagues have contributed to a book addressing this movement. Each has written on a topic they are uniquely qualified to address. The book is called, Chrislam: How Missionaries are Promoting an Islamized Gospel.
It’s an important work because it’s the only single volume (that I know of) that tackles the wide range of subtopics that arise from this particular missions approach. For example, there are articles dealing with the role of persecution among converts from Islam, missiology, the proper role and boundaries of contextualization, the concerns with Muslim-friendly Bible translations, testimony from former insiders, and much more.
