The Land and the Book
Air Date July 26, 2014
Over the years we’ve talked with a number of guests who work in Muslim contexts. And no matter what organization or nationality, their stories have remained remarkably consistent. But some still find it hard to believe that Muslims in large numbers are now beginning to come to faith in Jesus. Wouldn’t it be helpful to have someone do a careful research study that could help us sort out fact from fiction…and hard data from hype? Well, this week’s guest, Dr. David Garrison, has done just that! We’ll talk with David about what God is really doing in the Muslim world from his new book, A Wind in the House of Islam.
Then later in the program, during our devotional time, we’ll travel to Eilat to meet one last time with King Solomon and learn from Ecclesiastes 11 how to live in uncertain times.
Dr. David Garrison
Dr. David Garrison has been a student of Islam—and God’s work among Muslims—since his days as an Arabic student in Egypt. He’s been a missionary pioneer with the Southern Baptist International Mission Board and now serves as its Global Strategist for Evangelical Advance. David received his PhD from the University of Chicago, and his latest book is titled A Wind in the House of Islam.
