Christians serving in Muslim lands told their stories of challenge and change in the acclaimed Where There Was No Church. In this sequel, devoted workers provide detailed stories of praise and imprisonment and inspiring portraits of the spread of the Christian movement--including a growing church in the shadow of a mosque. Fruitful Practice researchers visited and interviewed about thirty church-planting teams on-site across six regions, translating and transcribing full tales of their cross-cultural gospel work.
Where There Is Now a Church provides seven case studies showing how God has established churches and church-planting movements among Muslim peoples. Each case study is accompanied by thoughtful discussion questions and a list of the church-planting practices it illustrates. The expansive appendix explains, categorizes, and describes a more complete list of sixty-eight fruitful practices for evangelism and church planting in Muslim settings. This readable and encouraging book describes many practices that can also be applied in non-Muslim contexts. This book will encourage veteran workers and inspire new servants to reach God's children throughout the Muslim world. The bottom line is that the message of hope in the Bible can overcome anything.
