Anglicans address the challenge of Islam

Allie Martin

A conservative Anglican organization is launching a campaign to teach others about the true nature of Islam.

The Convocation of Anglicans in North America (CANA) calls the initiative the "Church and Islam Project." It is an education-focused project designed to help Anglicans understand Islam and the challenge it poses to the church and its mission.

Minister Julian Dobbs is leading the project, which is designed to educate people on the truth about Islam and also provide a biblical witness to Muslims.

"I continue to believe that a world which is racked with so much pain and violence needs to hear the gospel message. Yet the challenge for us in North America is, Muslim sources report that 100,000 people in this country alone turn to Islam," he points out. "We'd like to reverse those challenges and see many of those individuals come to a living faith in Jesus Christ."

CANA has blasted Episcopal bishops and other leaders of the denomination who allow mullahs (Muslim scholars) to teach in their churches. Here
