Bridges Study

Check out the video sample of this inviting course!

A great first step for those curious about Muslims.  Available as a dvd course perfect for small group study, Bridges provides biblical teaching about Islam and what Muslims believe, opening the door for better understanding.

Since 9/11, the image of Muslims evokes fear and mistrust in Americans. Yet, Jesus teaches compassion and challenges his followers to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.
 
Crescent Project's video segments combine information about Islam with personal accounts of their questions and search for truth by individuals born into Muslim cultures in the US.
Lots more information about the course is on the Crescent Project website.

Crescent Project also provides mentorship and an outreach network online, so registering the course with them helps them to refer others to you in future.

Let us at Abq Oasis Team know if your church or group wants to do this study- maybe we can help as well. We have people experienced at working with Muslims both here and overseas who might be able to moderate one or several of your sessions, and give you encouragement!

Note:
We highly recommend the Bridges study book. Anyone who is just beginning to learn about Islam will find it very helpful. It is 140 pages and includes the text of Fouad's booklets 'Is the Injeel Corrupted?' and 'Adha in the Injeel'.
For those who have already studied Islam somewhat  and do not want a study book, we will have a handout with verses to study for the seminar and links to more information.
