Finding Jesus among Muslims: How Loving Islam Makes Me a Better Catholic
Why should Christians engage in interfaith dialogue with Muslims? Does Islam have anything to offer Christians? What is Islamophobia, and what should we do about it?
These are just some of the questions addressed in Finding Jesus among Muslims, an urgent and award-winning book from author Jordan Denari Duffner. Drawing from church teaching, the stories of saints and martyrs, and her extensive personal experiences living among Muslims in both the United States and the Middle East, Duffner explains why all Christians are called to participate in a “dialogue of life” with Muslims.
Finding Jesus among Muslims was published in December 2017 by Catholic publisher Liturgical Press. The Association of Catholic Publishers named it among the top Catholic books of 2018; Finding Jesus among Muslims was awarded Second Place in the General Interest category.
