Ihr Minderheitenstatus hindert Christen in islamischen Mehrheitsländern nicht daran, ihren Beitrag zur gesellschaftlichen Entwicklung zu leisten, wie wie Autoren aus 14 Ländern zeigen.
Their minority status does not deter Christians in Islamic contexts from following their vocation. They impact their societies in profound and powerful ways, even though they have little political and economic power.
The authors of this volume provide examples of Christian outreach in Islamic societies in the forms of witness, service, relief work and hospitality. They emphasise that a living faith cannot remain silent, even when in prison, kidnapped or under threat of violence.
This book contains sobering reminders that Christian groups are still facing marginalization in a number of predominantly Islamic societies. Nevertheless, as several case studies demonstrate, sustained and concerted advocacy efforts may well lead to an improvement of their position.
