9.x - 10.x

Throughout the traditional world of Christendom, today more commonly termed "the West", Muslim communities have become a permanent feature of the environment. Since the end of the last world war, countless thousands have emigrated from their homelands to settle in Europe and North America. Others have emigrated to Australia and other countries generally associated with the Western world while in my home country, South Africa, Muslims from the Asian sub-continent have long been resident in sizeable communities throughout the land.

The Church has a situation it has never seen before - whole world of Islam in miniature at its traditional doorstep. It has an opportunity to reach Muslims with the Gospel such as it has never enjoyed before. It possesses a number of advantages in the circumstances which it has not seen in its efforts to reach Muslims within the traditional world of Islam, namely North Africa, the Middle East, the Indo-Pakistani region, and South-East Asia.

This is one of the major reasons for the publication of this book. It is the conviction of many that the emigration of so many Muslims to the West, which has created such a new field of witness for the Church, can only be explained by the hand of providence. The potential for a broadly-based witness and thrust among the Muslims in our midst and, through them, to the Muslim communities of the world must surely be identified and acted upon. Christians and churches generally can now become directly involved in evangelism among Muslims and an open door has been set before us which we can only ascribe to the express will of God that we should seize the opportunities he has given us.

It is my persuasion that the work cannot be embarked upon without a conscious awareness of the issues involved and an adequate preparation for the task. If we are to realise it, we must identify the opportunities we have, be instructed in the whole subject of Muslim evangelism and effective methods of reaching Muslims with the Gospel, and finally know how to handle the usual Muslim objections to the Christian faith, its scripture, doctrines and beliefs.
