6) Is there a Course Like “Encountering the World of Hinduism?”

islam studyAn encouraging worker from Philippines contacted us this past week, mentioning that she had taken “Encountering the World of Islam,” and loved it — but she was wondering if such a course existed for Hinduism – and she’s especially interested in online options. We have published details about conferences offered by instructors at particular universities or conference centers, but as far as a “course in a box” and/or a course online, I was stumped. Are there any to which you could direct us? If so, just click “Comment” after the web version of this item and you’ll be helping all of us be more effective with the world’s Hindus. Thanks in advance for any help!

10) Sharing Good News with Muslims the “EI” Way

Searching for a great way to share your Good News with a Muslim friend or acquaintance? Dan Ross (not his real name) wrote to Brigada this past week, “Having successfully completed both 9-months of TOAG and also the full program of Engaging Islam, now known as SIMS, … the EI/SIMS approach provides the hearer with a clear message of the Gospel. The Good News, as described plainly in the truth of God’s Word — the Bible — is very simple. It is helpful to understand the Qur’an, but only from the aspect of understanding the spiritual prison in which the Muslim lives. It is important for the Muslim to understand from the beginning that the ‘Isa al-masih character in the Qur’an is not the same person as Messiah Jesus in the Bible. Jesus, the Son of God, is the only one who deserves to be glorified, as He is the only Savior. Give no quarter to the enemy’s clever forgeries. Let us take seriously the command of 2 Corinthians 4:1-6, by setting forth the Truth plainly. Our jobs are to proclaim and make disciples. Allow the Holy Spirit to do His work in the heart and mind of the Muslim. Expect spiritual opposition when the Muslim’s heart is softening. But, we know that greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world.”
