In Christianity, if we want to describe Jesus, we use the words prophet, priest, and king to describe who he is, what he did, and what he continues to do. In this article, I will use those three terms to describe the person of Muhammad from Islamic sources.
In this article, I explore the way that Muslims view the Qur'an and compare this with the promises of the Bible.

This helpful article, written from the perspective of someone raised in Southeast Asia, highlights the allures and pitfalls of mercy ministry.
As we enter the decade of the new “roaring 20’s” many new words will find currency in our society. This piece looks at wokeness, virtue signalling, and intersectionality.
In Islam, there is a special night called the Night of Power/Destiny (or in Arabic, laylat al-Qadr). Here I compare and contrast that night with Christmas Eve.
At times the glowing statistics of massive movements to Christ in the Muslim world hide another reality, namely the fact that reversions back to Islam are also happening.
