Product Description

World events won’t let North Americans ignore Muslims anymore. Whether those Muslims are villagers in Iraq or neighbors down the street, Breaking the Islam Code offers everyday Christians profound insight into the way Muslims think and feel.

J.D. Greear’s ability to communicate challenging heart truth, plus his expertise in Christian and Islamic theology and two years’ experience in a Muslim-dominated area, make him the perfect author for this empowering, insightful, reader-friendly book. It transcends traditional apologetics, focusing on helping Christians

  • understand what is deep in Muslims’ hearts, behind their theology—which will lead to friendship and effective communication of the gospel
  • respectfully turn many of the primary objections into opportunities to share the faith
  • avoid unnecessarily offending Muslims they’re interacting with

Readers will be excited that sharing Christ with Muslims is something they can do—as everyday Christians in their own cities, campuses, and workplaces.

  1. 1. What I liked…

    In general, I’d agree with the positive reviews written about this book. It provides a comprehensive overview of Islam, while providing some ways to healthily respond and engage with our Muslim friends and neighbors. It really is a good introduction if you’ve not read anything on the subject before.

    2. Some questions marks…

    I wish I had read the back cover. In general, I like to read books by people who have considerable experience. The back cover says that J.D. ‘lived and worked for two years among Muslims in Southeast Asia before studying Christian and Islamic theology.’ While the book provides a good overview and is a good resource, I wish it had come from someone who had more experience.

    I also think providing a critique for the C-5 and C-6 movements is not appropriate for a book like this. I realize I’m wading into church politics, but I found the critique of C5/C6 movements on the whole to be overly simplistic, especially when criticizing the Camel method. Greeson, who authored the book called The Camel Method, has been on the field in South East Asia for over 40 years doing evangelism and church planting with a considerable amount of success. I’m a practitioner in this field and I’ve found the Camel Method to be very helpful in starting conversations with my Muslim friends and I wouldn’t consider myself someone who advocates C5 or C6 practices.

  2. “Breaking the Islam Code is a wonderfully helpful book for anyone who wants to understand their Muslim neighbors and to communicate the gospel to them in a winsome and accurate manner. Dr. Greear uses his personal experience with Muslims to provide the reader keen insight into Islamic theology, as well as the common misunderstandings and objections that many Muslims have with the Christian message. His book is a needed addition to the ongoing conversation about the relationship between Islam and Christianity because it helps the reader to view Muslims as people for whom Jesus died, and for whom the Gospel is indeed the `pearl of great price.'”

  3. Scripture tells us that we are to go into the world making disciples. It also tells us that the only way to the Father is through the Son. If we are to fulfill our mission we must reach out to all people; this includes Muslims. To reach Muslims we must understand their beliefs and why they believe. We must reach out to them in love. “Breaking The Islam Code” offers insight into the beliefs and life of Muslims.

    This book is easy to read and understand, yet this is more than surface information. I was very touched by the author’s story. My first thoughts were “we must make them our friend if we want them to hear us.” Sometimes our actions speak louder than words.

  4. JD’s book is very easy to read and understand but it is very deep and informative. If you have any desire to understand the Islamic faith or minister to Muslims this is a book you need to read. I underlined something on virtually every page. It is both informative and inspirational. I am praying that I will be able to apply the truths very, very soon. I loved Timothy George’s “Is the Father of Jesus the God of Mohammed” and I rate this book as highly. I am already looking forward to JD’s next book.
