In view of the interest these survey results had in Sunday mornings message, I have reprinted the findings reported from Christianity Today in 2008 concerning the top five reasons Muslims convert to Christianity. There is no god like our God!
Grace and Peace, Chris
“A survey of 750 Muslims who converted to Christianity shows five predominant reasons they chose to follow Christ. The respondents were from 30 countries and 50 ethnic groups. The survey was prepared at Fuller Theological Seminary's School of Intercultural Studies, and reported in Christianity Today.
Muslims are now 21 percent of the world population, increasing from 12 percent in the past 100 years. And the growth rate of Islam is higher than that of Christianity (1.81% per year, compared to 1.23%). Christians still outnumber Muslims, with one-third of the world population naming Christianity as their faith.
In some parts of the world, significant pockets of Muslims are turning to Christ, including North Africa, South Asia, and Indonesia.”
