Thanks for the reminder....

Lynden Williams:

I was going to pass on this set... but after reading about it, I'm thinking maybe I should be willing to invest a little to better understand what I do/don't believe & better understand how to witness. 

I'm in at $20.... would raise my bid to $25 if available... But only choices were $20 & $30.

Grace & Peace,

There are few of us today who will have no encounter with someone who has converted to Islam or was brought up as a Moslem.  Many of us have or will find ourselves entering into a conversation with individuals of that other faith. While this book collection is obviously not totally up to date, neither is Islam.  In any significant encounter with a Moslem, you will be asked your opinion of their prophet.  As Islam has a story about Jesus and all things Christian, you will be totally out of your depth if you have no opinion but expect to be able to tell them about Jesus; especially  without any idea that they already know about Jesus.  You will be totally out of your depth if you do not have a reasonable grasp of what Islam says about the story of Jesus. 

This collection is an inexpensive way to get to know what you will be up against in a conversation with Islam. It will help you understand what you need to know to be able to start to have a positive experience in discussions with Moslems.  This collection after all is written by someone who not only encountered Islam but was successful in making inroads into explaining to them the real story of Jesus and making disciples where others just floundered due to lack of knowledge of the culture to which they were preaching.

You can pretty much guarantee that attempting to witness to Islam without gaining the insights that this collection can impart will be worse than just a waste of your time an efforts.  Unless you isolate yourself from the world, you will likely have the opportunity to witness for Jesus to Islam.  Would it not be wise at this kind of price to have the opportunity to not fail miserably ?  Islam already teaches them more about you and your faith than you may care to imagine.  This collection is armour.  Try some.
