Bridges introduces Christians to Islam and paves the way for building relationships with the Muslims in your community.
Christians have responded to Muslims in many ways, but all too often, without the compassion that characterized Jesus. Bridges seeks to replace fear and intimidation with love and gentle boldness, reshaping the way Christians view and respond to their Muslim neighbors.
"Crescent Project's Bridges study is an excellent resource...it cultivates a heart for others and cultivates a missional focus in a natural and simple way."
– John Weiner, Southeast Christian Church
Three Reasons Bridges is Effective
1. Bridges is one-of-a-kind because it focuses on similarities, not differences.
Despite the crucial differences between Islam and Christianity, there are areas of common ground. Bridges teaches how to build a bridge between the two using shared concepts.
2. Bridges meets you where you are.
Bridges is easy to understand, even if you don’t have much prior knowledge of Islam. The material is also valuable to those seeking to build on what they already know about Muslims.
3. Bridges is practical and biblical.
Bridges allows you to gain biblical insight into Islamic history and Muslim beliefs, while providing useful next steps and stories that help you put the teaching into practice.
"Crescent Project's training is practical, biblical, and much needed in today's climate of misunderstanding."
– Ravi Zacharias, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries
