14) The BackPage: “The Straight Path” — Jesus in the Qur’an?

straight_pathThis past week, I came across a chart showing how the Qur’an and the Bible both point toward the coming of Jesus as the Anointed one. I can’t find a LOT about this concept, but the best resource I’ve seen on it so far comes from…

along with a summary article at…

My sense is that this approach might be controversial for some (those who fear that prompting any Muslim to spend more time in the Qur’an is a mistake?), but what I’m looking for is — a) What kind of experience do you have with this approach? and b) How have Muslims responded to it, in your case studies? Finally, c) What additional resources have you used or have you heard about that can guide a person in understanding this approach?

If you would be so kind as to click “Comment” following the web version of this item, I’d love for us to explore the use of this approach with a view toward fashioning an understanding of it with our Muslim neighbors today. Thanks in advance for any time you can invest.

2) Garrison’s “A Wind In The House Of Islam” Now Available

House of Islam bookThousands of copies that have been pre-ordered are now on their way around the world. David Garrison’s new book will encourage, challenge, inspire, and teach. According to his website, for a short while you’ll still be able to get the book at deep discounts. The book will retail for $18.95, but you can still purchase it for as little as $9.00 each for a case of 40 (more than 52% discount) and $12.00 for single copies. Unfortunately, it’s not entirely clear where you can find these prices. If you click on Bookstore at Garrison’s own site, the price is already listed at the retail. At this point, we suggest you use the “Contact us” link at the website…

and explain you’d like to purchase at the lower price according to the landing page of the website. They’ll almost HAVE to honor the lower price until they change their own home page price discounts. However, act quickly if you want this reduced price. My hunch is, once they see this Brigada item, they might remove the discount plan at the home page.

1) Learn Islam and the Middle East Online from Carl Medearis

Carl Medearis is one of the biggest names in Islamic studies. Imagine studying personally with him via special online courses. Now you can, via William Jessup University in Sacramento, CA? There are six courses all focused on the Middle East (although one is an “Intro to Islam” course which would be broader than the Middle East). Check it out

And enjoy learning from a famous dude. :-)

6) More Books/Resources on Understanding Islam

how-to-respond-muslimsI’m struck by the way Logos has created a learning system within its publishing platform. It’s a great way for missionaries to build a fantastic library at a decent price without buying those Rubbermaid “Tote” tubs. What’s more, one book that was $5 in print and $3.50 in Kindle edition (on Amazon) was just $2.25 in Logos’ marketplace. As always, it’s best to shop. About half the time, in my own comparisons, the Kindle edition would be cheaper, but Logos’ system was less expensive in other situations. See for yourself and do your own cost comparison at…

Either way, don’t forget that you can use coupon code BRIGADA5 at checkout to get 15% additional discount off the already-discounted price. (Disclaimer: They’ve said they’ll make a gift to Brigada as a result of these purchases. But what I don’t understand is — if they’re shaving off dollars from what Amazon charges, how will they have any money leftover to make a donation? Does this mean Amazon is becoming filthy rich? :-) Your choice as to whom you want to support. :-) )

9) Training in Evangelism Among Muslims

Immerse yourself in this intensive course in Islam, its people and culture. Then, use what you learn in daily guided outreach opportunities with seasoned mentors. Manarah combines classroom training with daily apprentice-like opportunities to share with Muslims in homes and nearby parks. Taste Arab hospitality while learning how to bring light to these least-reached people.

Sounds fantastic.

1) Mobilization Video about Unengaged Muslim Groups

Islam VideoI guess I’ve been asleep. I hadn’t presented, or even SEEN, the video at…

about unengaged Muslim Groups. It would be a great session-starter or “countdown” video before a special focus on Muslim peoples. Of course, who will be remaking these as we send new teams of witnesses to these people groups? :-) I ask because I’m assisting with one new team who has already been working in one of these [now previously-] unengaged groups for nearly two years. I guess Finishing the Task is helping with that question. Anyone else tracking this data?

12) Make a Connection with your Muslim Friend at the Connexion Conf.

It’s May 17-18 at Southwest Bible Church in Beaverton, OR. You could still catch the Early Bird Special registration price (until May 11) which is $40 for a single, $60 for a couple and $20 for a student. Learn more at

2) What’s the Best Guide to Arab Culture & Islam?

One of our Brigada participants wrote this past week wondering what might be the best guide to Arab culture and Islam. One of the churches with whom he is partnering is looking for something less on how to evangelize and more on how to get know, how to connect, and how to avoid insulting. What resource would you recommend? If you have an idea, please click “comment” below the online version of this item. Thanks in advance for any help you can render.
