When Christians in Australia talk about Islam there is an incredibly broad response. Some view Muslims with fear and repulsion and if they are immigrants they want them to go back to their country of origin. Others view them with indifference and try to avoid them. Others seek to reach out to them and befriend them in the name of Christ.
How can we respond? While driving today, I listened to a panel discussion from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kentucky, USA. It’s an excellent introduction to a subject that some of us struggle with, and it contains some challenges. How do we respond without the usual “us” and “them” approach? Highly recommended.
