My Neighbour's Faith
Islam Explained for Christians
By (author) John Allembillah Azumah
My Neighbour's Faith by John Allembillah Azumah
Book DescriptionNowhere else in the world have both Islam and Christianity been more instrumental in shaping the history of a people and their way of life than in Africa. African Muslims and Christians have a lot in common, including kinship ties, shared languages and citizenship. Yet, despite the centuries of deep historical links and harmonious existence between the two religions, new challenges threaten this harmony. Conflicts involving Christians and Muslims in places like Sudan, Nigeria and Ivory Coast are common. These conflicts are fueled primarily by ignorance, stereotyping and prejudice, which in turn breed fear, suspicion and even hatred, in some cases leading to violence. My Neighbour s Faith sheds light on the beliefs and teaching of Islam by addressing matters of contemporary importance to Christians and the wider non-Muslim audience. It presents the human face of Islam the face of a close relative, a neighbour, a teacher and even a head of state in a balanced and critical way that gives a credible view of Islam."

The common perception is that Christianity in Africa was responsible for many injustices and harm to the culture and society of the continent, but Islam fitted well in Africa, and eschewed slavery. Azumah shows that Islam enslaved and forcibly converted as many African people as Christianity.
