I am part way through the "Encountering the World of Islam" textbook. It offers a variety of scholarly perspectives to increase Christians' understanding of how to approach Islam and Muslims. It is a substantial book (574pp), while "God's Heart for Muslims" is a 60-page Bible study with summary info about Islam that I can easily carry with me. The "Encounter Muslims" DVD provides high quality videos about the diverse cultural expression of Islam from a respectful but seriously evangelistic Christian point of view. This last phrase highlights the distinctive of the Caleb project and Pioneer resources for sharing Jesus with Muslims.
