Learn to carefully and purposefully use the Quran
as a bridge to Christ and the Bible.
Several years ago I learned how to use the Quran, the Muslim holy book, as a springboard for effective spiritual discussions with Muslims. If you’ve spent any
time around Muslims, you know that talking about God and spiritual things is easy. The main problem is that there are vast differences between Christianity and Islam. Effective conversations eluded me for years until I learned how to use the Quran to lead Muslims to Christ and the Bible.
Dear Fellow Laborer,
I labored for four fruitless years, attempting to bring the Gospel to Arab Muslims. I was frustrated and discouraged and at times, thought that I was wasting my time. After all, I thought about all the perceived roadblocks and problems, as most other Christians do…
The Muslim view of Jesus is incomplete
Muslims deny Christ’s resurrection in Islam
Converting to Christianity is illegal for Muslims
Islam vehemently denies Christ’s deity
The Muslim view of Jesus is incomplete
There are numerous differences between Christianity and Islam
Jesus’ name in Islam is Isa
There’s so much stuff about Islam I don’t know
But then I stumbled upon how to use the Quran as a witnessing tool. I heard of a fellow laborer, “Timothy”, who had success sharing the Gospel with Muslims in several well known, predominantly Muslim countries. I arranged to meet him and asked him what his secret was. Thankfully, he saw my hunger and desperation and showed me what he was doing, first hand. At first I was skeptical, but as I listened and learned I saw that He honored Christ as Lord at every turn. He was not trying to synchronize the Bible and Islam or water-down the Gospel in any way.
Now, Timothy was not an Arabic speaker. He used a translator. On my first few occasions with him, he used me! He was reverent and respectful with Muslims and they enjoyed his presence. He cared for them as a brother cares for a sibling. He started each spiritual conversation with Arab Muslims with a simple prayer for God’s guidance. He then would reference passages from the Quran to start the ball rolling.
I was a little put off at first. I guess I had the normal, knee-jerk reactions that Western Christians usually have toward Islam and the Quran. Unfortunately, these reactions often boil over in the form of hostility toward Muslims themselves, and everything they hold dear. You know as well as I do, this is not our intent. It’s just a reaction. As I listened to Timothy’s’ choice of Quranic verses, however, I noticed that he had a plan.
He chose verses that were clear and powerful…
Verses that always led Muslims to the Bible and to Jesus.
His boldness and passion were contagious and I continued to work with him and learned how to effectively communicate the Gospel to Muslims. Perhaps the most amazing thing that occurred during this initial learning phase, (beyond seeing Muslims choose to whole-heartedly follow Christ), is the transformation that occurred in my own heart. I really learned to love Muslims. I learned to find common ground with them and to gently lead them instead of competing and fighting with them as I had formerly done. Using the Quran to lead men to Jesus and the Bible has allowed me to see more fruit for God’s Kingdom and to grow in Christ personally.
After years of practicing and refining this approach I’ve compiled the best of the best and made them available in eBook format. I’ve personally taught these truths to many groups and they are truly field tested. As I’ve travelled and taught these truths throughout the Middle East I’ve been very careful not to deceive Muslims about my own faith, or my intentions. Muslims know how I feel about the Quran. They know I don’t call myself a Muslim, but a sincere follower of Christ. He alone is my Lord and Savior and there is no Savior or way to God but by Him.
Few Western Christians have learned these truths as well. Some have adopted them fully, some have customized them, and some have rejected them. This is healthy and fine. I seek only to make these truths available to those who hunger as I did; those who want to really connect with and impact the lives of Muslims through Christ. In Quranic Bridges to Christ you’ll learn the following:
The two primary ways I use the Quran
What I really think of the Quran
How I answer Muslims who are surprised I use the Quran
Two Quranic verses that allow you to be brutally honest, yet inoffensive to Muslims
How to effectively answer charges of the Bible’s corruption
The strongest Quranic verses that instruct Muslims to read the Bible
My favorite verses from the Quran that lead Muslims to Jesus
Again, I stress that these truths and Quranic verses are not provided so that you can argue with Muslims. As you learn of and begin utilizing these truths, God’s Spirit will direct you and fill you with God’s love for Muslims who don’t know Christ.
You’ll also learn:
Key Quranic words that speak of Christ’s death
Just a note… Especially for non-Arabic speakers, this portion of the book is worth the price alone. This is no exaggeration. The English translations of the Quran hide and distort these Quranic verses in the grossest way. Very few Muslims dare argue with the clear Arabic language in the Quran. You’ll be able to show them these Arabic words with simple, powerful humility.
The three Quranic verses which speak clearly of Christ’s death
How to respond to alternate renditions of Christ’s death
The 20 + Quranic references to the key Arabic word referring to someone dying
The page in the newspaper which solidifies the Quranic witness of Christ’s death
The one verse about His death that must be dealt with decisively (and how to do so)
A contextual exegesis of the verse mentioned above
These Quranic verses are simply sign posts. As I use and discuss them I always remain humble, and I always let God lead men to Himself. Handing a Muslim his first Bible is one of the greatest privileges I’ve ever enjoyed in God’s Kingdom. By God’s grace and wisdom, these truths have helped me do this.
Additionally, you’ll discover useable, common ground Quranic truths about:
The birth of Christ (Hint: He was born of a virgin!)
Allah’s relationship to Christ
The sinless nature of Christ (Yes, it’s in Arabic)
How Christ is exalted in the Quran
The resurrection of Christ
Christ’s honorable titles
Christ, the Word of God
Much, much, more
These truths are compiled and presented in Quranic Bridges to Christ
in order to put in your hands a working body of knowledge that is
field tested and proven to work.
There’s plenty of information out there that teaches people how to win arguments with Muslims and disprove the Quran, or highlight its errors. That is not the purpose of this eBook. I wrote this book because this approach works. I’ve seen it work countless times. It’s not the best, or the only approach to Muslim evangelism, but it is one that bears fruit. Once you see the numerous, time tested bridges between Islam and Jesus Christ, you’ll know why this method works.
One of my biggest honors has been teaching former Muslims who have trusted in Christ these exact truths about Jesus Christ in the Quran. They personalize the approach and deliver it in a most powerful way. The underlying truths I learned from Timothy years ago remain the same. We talk of God’s Kingdom, build upon the Muslim view of Jesus and what Islam says about Jesus, and lead men across the various verses, or bridges, from the Quran to Christ. It’s simply amazing.
In addition to Quranic Bridges to Christ, I’ve also included another powerful field tool called Who Is Christ as a free bonus.
This eBook contains more than 20 Biblical proofs of Christ’s deity. Mind you, these are not the ‘common’ Scriptural proofs that can be found in any Sunday school class, but what I like to call ‘no wiggle-room’ verses. That is, verses which are hard, and dare I say, impossible to refute. This is one of the most difficult parts of bringing the Gospel to Muslims, but these Biblical truths were chosen because they are the strongest proofs available. Each Biblical proof is presented in Arabic, English and the original Hebrew or Greek text. As with Quranic Bridges to Christ, this eBook is full of field tested material that has been used effectively with Arab Muslims, convincing them with full Biblical authority, of Christ’s unique position as the Almighty.
When I learned the truths contained in the pages of these two books and began using them to share Christ with Arab Muslims I noticed a profound difference in myself, my delivery, and the results. Now, no matter what the subject Muslims bring up; be it angels in Islam, the messengers of Allah, the Muslim holy books, the will of Allah, Muslim names for God, daily prayers in Islam, the importance of zakat, Islamic fasting, or the alleged corruption of the Bible, I’m always purposed and ready to have focused and fruitful conversations. My intent in every situation is to bring men from Islam and the Quran to Jesus and the Bible. I stay focused because I know how to use the Quran, and how not to use it.
If you’re hungry to begin giving Bibles to Muslims, or to start
studying the Bible with Muslims, I strongly encourage you to
learn how to use the Quran to share Christ.
If you long for meaningful spiritual conversations with Muslims instead of just arguments, I encourage you to get this eBook. When I first approached Timothy, he asked me why I wanted to learn what he was doing. I simply told him that I heard it was working and I wanted to see it and judge it for myself. He smiled and began teaching me immediately. With the low, introductory price of $9.99, you will not be disappointed when you invest in this material.

To Muslims who may be reading this, we remind you of the clear instruction of the Quran which encourages dialogue between Christians and Muslims:
“Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue
with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance. And if ye do catch them out, catch them out no worse than they catch you out: But if ye show patience, that is indeed the best (course) for those who are patient.” – S. Al-Nahl 16:125-126
