Welcome to this research guide for Women in Islam. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and CRA paper.
This course is designed to introduce the student to the spiritual, private, and public worlds of Muslim women as a prelude to reaching them with the message of life. The author investigates barriers preventing the spread of the gospel among Muslims. Emphasizing the need to be well acquainted with the world of Muslim women to minister effectively, she presents biblical models of witness that build trust and community in which the gospel can be heard and received. Muslim women represent a major area of potential for reaching into the community of Islam. Because of cultural restrictions, reaching Muslim women requires dedicated, Spirit-filled, and trained Christian women. This course is a major contributor of such training.
Global University does not necessarily agree with all the views represented in the resources in this guide. These are provided for the student to contrast and compare with the Biblical text and ideas presented in the Global University IST.
