Phil Parshall’s The Cross and the Crescent: Understanding the Muslim Heart and Mind was published fifteen years ago, but I find it still speaks with contemporary clarity. Parshall served for years as a missionary among Muslims in the country of Bangladesh–that’s where I first met him and became aware of his published works. Through the years I have continued to read his volumes and to watch his development of the picture every Christian needs in order to witness to Muslim friends and neighbors at home or abroad in a Muslim country. No one describes the phenomenon of folk Islam better than Parshall. In this volume he explores the spirituality of both Islam and Christianity — comparing, contrasting, explaining, and drawing significant conclusions. Readers will find this book filled with insight, compassion, humility, and a Gospel-driven heart to proclaim Christ.
