The April 2016 issue of Tabletalk considers Islam. Since originating in Arabia during the seventh century, Islam has expanded around the globe. Some estimates identify as much as twenty-three percent of the world's population as being Muslim. Christianity has a long history of encountering and engaging Islam, whether through evangelization, military crusades, or even living under Islamic rule. In the modern era, many nations identify as Islamic, and Islam is growing in the West. To add, Islamic terrorism is a major force today. This issue of Tabletalk considers Islam's history, our present circumstances, how Islam and Christianity relate to one another, and how Christians can share the gospel with Muslims.
