Herald Press book receives Christianity Today award

Christian. Muslim. Friend.: Twelve Paths to Real Relationship, written by David W. Shenk and published by Herald Press, is among 13 books chosen by Christianity Today as “the books most likely to shape evangelical life, thought, and culture.” Shenk’s book received the top 2016 award in the Missions/The Global Church category. The book lays out twelve ways that Christians can form authentic relationships with Muslims. It emphasizes that Christians can build relationships with Muslims that are characterized by respect, hospitality, and candid dialogue and that still bear witness to the Christ-centered commitments of their faith. Shenk and his wife, Grace, have been longtime mission workers in various Middle Eastern and African settings. He is the author of numerous books on understanding Islam and building relationships with Muslims, including a series called Christians Meeting Muslims. Brian Howell, professor of anthropology at Wheaton College and one of the judges for the book awards says, “Without giving formulas or reducing Muslims to a single type, Shenk draws on his vast experience in many parts of the world to provide an encouraging way forward for anyone seeking to share the hope of the gospel with their Muslim neighbors.” —MennoMedia
