A Wind in the House of Islam
Thirteen centuries of Muslim-Christian contact saw only one voluntary movement of Muslims to Christ, yet over the past few decades more than 60 new movements have emerged. Why now? “A Wind in the House of Islam” takes you from Africa to Indonesia, asking a thousand Muslim-background believers: What did God use to bring you to faith in Jesus?

Speaking of Jesus: The Art of Non-Evangelism
In “Speaking of Jesus,” Carl Medearis gives us tools, stories, and the foundation we need to move beyond “us” and “them” and simply talk about the One who changes it all. As Carl writes, “While others are explaining and defending various isms and ologies we’re simply pointing people to our friend. The one who uncovers and disarms. Who leads people right to himself. The beginning and the end of the story. A good story indeed.” Quit defending Christianity. Relax. And focus on Jesus.
How do the people most resistant to the transformative power of the gospel come to be its most devoted followers? “Miraculous Movement” recounts an amazing change taking place within Muslim communities where the truth of Jesus Christ is turning around the lives of many thousands of Muslims from more than twenty people groups.
Discover through the sometimes humorous, often sobering, but always enlightening and encouraging true stories how imams, sheikhs, and entire mosques are forsaking Islam and embracing Christ.
Muslims, Christians, and Jesus
Gaining Understanding and Building Relationships. According to author Carl Medearis, how Christians respond to Islam and how Christians think of Muslims could be the most significant issues of our time.
Based on the author’s twenty-five years of first-hand experience, this engaging book reveals what Islam really teaches and how today’s Muslims live and think. Carl Medearis shows readers how they can build life-changing bridges between the world’s two largest religions–one person at a time, whether in the US or elsewhere.

Grace For Muslims?
“Why should an essentially ‘benign’ religion turn some into ‘demons’?” asked a Muslim journalist. It is a question that is at the heart of the Islamic debate. Alarmist claims are made about these ‘demons’, while the possibility of a peaceful Islam is dismissed. Many are confused about the religion’s contradictory faces.
Is it possible for Christians to relate to Muslims without being politically naive or theologically liberal? Steve believes it is. He shares his own 25 year journey and reflects upon how he arrived at the crucial ingredient: grace.
