    Muslims who come to Christ face momentous spiritual, psychological and social obstacles that drive many to abandon their faith.

    Often conversion and discipleship are framed by individualistic Western models that do not acknowledge the communal cultural forces that constrain and shape new believers. Effective discipleship requires a more relational, holistic process of Christian identity development and spiritual formation in community.

    In this comprehensive resource, missiologist Don Little engages the toughest theoretical and practical challenges involved in discipline believers from Muslim backgrounds. He draws on New Testament principles, historical practices and interviews with seasoned disciples ministering in a dozen countries across the Muslim world. Effective Discipling in Muslim Communities addresses key challenges that believers from Muslim backgrounds face, from suffering and persecution to spiritual warfare and oppression. Also included are implications for the role of disciples in church planting among Muslims.
