Missionaries in Muslim Contexts—Recommended Resources

As part of our ongoing BibleMesh Conversations event series we had the pleasure of hearing from Dr. Peter Riddell, interviewed by Dr. Benjamin Quinn on “Missionaries in Muslim Contexts.” Dr. Riddell addressed several questions which we may highlight in posts to the BibleMesh blog in the coming weeks, such as “What are some crucial ‘landmines to be aware of when dialoging with Muslims?” and “What are the differences between Islam as practiced by Sunnis versus Shiites?”

One recurring question we asked Dr. Riddell was to provide some suggested resources for the various topics presented. We have compiled numerous resources which Dr. Riddell mentioned, and supplemented with some additional resources which we have seen that many of our BibleMesh Institute students find useful. These include resources on understanding Islam in its various contexts, Muslim theology, missiological considerations, and ministering to Muslim women:
