From the beginning of this book you know the author has a true love for Islamic people. Once you have read it, I hope you will feel closer to them yourselves.
I would warrant that a great majority of the Christian community has no idea what Muslim's really believe. Because they do not believe in Christ as God, most simply write them off as unbelivers and give them and their religion no further thought. This book will open your eyes to the fact that Christians and Muslims have a basis for religious dialog.
The author states that this book is not for Muslims but for Christians who desire to share Christ with Muslim friends. The key word here is "friends". This book shows that by building friendship through a true caring of his/her Muslim friend a Christian can lay a foundation that allows the sharing of ones beliefs. This book isn't written to confront the disblieving Muslim with his unbelief but to build a trusting relationship with him/her that allows you to, lovingly, share Christ.
Accad's book really opened my eyes to the fact that Christians and Muslims are not a million miles apart from one another, but that there are "bridges" that can be crossed in a caring manner.
A Muslim acquaitance of mine once said that there are 3 holy peoples: Christians, Jews, and Muslims. This book shows this isn't the random thought of one Muslim but that there can be a connection between Muslims and Christians that allows for the Muslim to share his deep trust in God and the Christian to share the gift of Christ's love and plan for all mankind.
