Engaging our Muslim Neighbors

Recent studies show that Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world.  Christ called us to love our neighbors.  So how do we share Christ's love with our Muslim neighbors?  Ed Stetzer talks with Micah Fries and Keith Whitfield, authors of the book "Islam and North America", about the common links and differences between Christians and Muslims and how we can engage them as we follow our calling from Christ.
