A LeaderWorks Interview:
Scholar, Lecturer, Anglican and Author Dr. Duane Miller

Is it true that Muslims are coming to faith in Christ in record numbers?  Really?  What happens with a Muslim comes to faith in Christ?  Duane Miller is an expert on the subject and sat with me for a few minutes to talk about this highly controversial and important topic.

(Please go to LeaderWorks for some background on this interview with Dr. Miller.  His contact information is contained in the post. You will want to know him and his work.  Here, Dr. Miller explains the title of his book (and offers a free PDF too). )

The introduction to Dr. Miller’s book reads: 
Around the worldpeople are leaving Islam for Christianity in unprecedented numbers. This book seeks to look into the world of some of these converts, trying to discern the shape of their newfound faith. Why do they convert? What challenges do they face? And ultimately, what do they in their own complex and sometimes difficult circumstances claim to have understood about God that, while in Islam, they had not? In other words, what is the content of their contextual theology?

    I really enjoyed working on this with you, Canon David. Thanks for helping to get the word out about some of the exciting and interesting things going on in global Christianity.

    I’m intrigued by the idea that liturgy appeals to some emerging from a tradition of set prayers. In much the same sense, is not Anglicanism a good fit for Hispanics who grew up with the Roman Catholic liturgy? While we’re appealing to evangelicals in search of a meatier expression of the faith (as we must), perhaps we should focus as well on those with a built-in affinity for what we offer.

      Indeed, it is true. And it down make sense. In the best sense, Anglicanism is ordered and community-based.
