Engaging Muslim Spirituality

How does the Gospel impact Islamic hearers and converts? A study of spiritual life among various Islamic traditions.

Dr. Mark and Karen Naylor spent 14 years presenting the Gospel to Muslim groups influenced by various local traditions. He returns to the East each year to translate Scripture. Mark shares insights into three different faces of Islam – conservative (orthodox), mystical (Sufi) and syncretistic (folk Islam) and how each responds to the Gospel. Both religious and cultural interactions will be considered with a special consideration concerning the dynamic of spiritual conversion and the “insider movement.” What happens when a Muslim from these backgrounds begins to follow Christ?  How does their theology shift?
