A Wind in the House of Islam
God is doing something unprecedented in the Muslim world today. Over the past 14 centuries, Islam and Christianity have engaged in a global contest with eternal implications. During the first 12 centuries, tens of millions of Christians were assimilated into the House of Islam, that broad expanse of territory encompassing more than 1.6 billion Islamic adherents. During those same centuries, there were only three, yes three, movements of at least a thousand Muslim conversions to the Christian faith. That pattern began to change at the end of the 19th century when two new movements of Muslims appeared: one in Indonesia and the other in Ethiopia. Then, in the latter third of the twentieth century, a further 11 movements of Muslims to Christ took place. Now, in just the first 13 years of the twenty-first century, we have seen an additional 69 movements of Muslims to faith in Jesus Christ. Though still tiny when compared to a religion that adds nearly 30 million to its number every year, this unprecedented awakening in the Muslim world is significant.
We are living in the midst of the greatest turning of Muslims to Christ in history.
You can download a free PowerPoint depicting what is happening in the Muslim world here. Or better yet, get a copy of my new book A Wind in the House of Islam, from our CPMs bookstore. The book is also available as an e-book from the Kindle store.
RAD: Rapidly Advancing Disciples
Looking for a practical field-tested implementation of the principles found in Steve Smith and Ying Kai's book, T4T: A Discipleship Re-Revolution? Since 2006, RAD (Rapidly Advancing Disciples) has been used by church planters from South Asia to South Africa to multiply healthy churches and disciples by going both deep and wide.
Drawing from Nathan and Kari Shank's, "The Four Fields" and Dr. Thom Wolf's "Universal Disciple", RAD offers biblical methods for all five parts of a church-planting plan in a way that allows each of the five parts to complement and build on the others. This recently updated version of RAD is based on input from both national and foreign church planters who have been successfully using it for many years.
Churchplantingmovements.com is pleased to offer RAD for your use at no cost. We are all in debt to the author of RAD for sharing this resource freely to expand the Kingdom of God and to make the knowledge of God's glory known across the entire earth.
