SUMMARY: The continual rise and influence of Islam around the world is cause for Christians of every nation to better equip themselves for the glorious task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace to their Muslim neighbors. This mini-thesis seeks to strengthen believers in their understanding of and witness to the Muslims with whom they will be increasingly interacting on a daily basis regardless of where they find themselves in the world. A host of comparisons between Christianity and Islam are offered to identify how radically the essential content of each religion contrasts. These stark differences in the central figure, origins, expansion, texts, Divine Being, humanity, salvation and practice give rise to radically different motives and methods for expansion. An analysis of how Islam is currently operating and growing globally is then presented to ground the aforementioned historical and theological investigation into the present realities of a sampling of nations. After identifying the heart of Islamic doctrine, practice and modern methodology for global dominance, the terms of engagement for communicating the gospel to Muslims become more clear and urgent. The intent of this thesis is then to inspire and equip Christ-centered, faith-filled, and Spirit-filled Christians of every nation to boldly, competently, and lovingly share the gospel with Muslims.
