Clues to Africa, Islam, and the Gospel: Insights for New Workers (Paperback)
Everyone loves simple answers, but making disciples in Africa requires more than a formula. New workers, in particular, need to know about African Muslim culture to successfully introduce people to Christ. This book prepares the Christian worker to use good reflection questions and observation as tools to engage fruitfully with African Muslims. These simple practices empower workers to operate from a more informed perspective. Drawing on decades of engagement in Africa, Colin Bearup has compiled a thoughtful collection of questions, insights, and narratives to guide the reader into a deeper appreciation for the nuances of African Islamic worldviews. A winsome and practical book of hard-won wisdom, Clues to Africa, Islam, and the Gospel is destined to become a go-to resource for those working on the continent. The next generation of gospel workers in Africa no longer needs to suffer through years and sometimes decades of ineffectiveness. Stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before and incorporate these tactics and strategies to build toward a successful ministry.
