Resources for Christian-Muslim Relations
A Christian is, by default, a witness for Jesus Christ. The defining characteristic of this witness is love -- love for God, love for neighbor. Neighborly love grows out of understanding which is the purpose of this site -- to provide resources to help engender a more empathetic understanding of our Muslim neighbors. It is designed, in particular, to help cut through the stereotypes and distortions which mark too much discourse on Islam in America today.
Our aim is to help all who visit this site to get to know our Muslim neighbors as neighbors and friends. We welcome all who share this purpose.
We always welcome your comments.
