Bible Storying for Muslim audiences
|There was once a king who made a very large statue.|
|A decree was made that all should come and bow to it. If someone refused they were to be thrown into the fire.|
|So the time of the party began, the horns were blown. Everyone gathered to worship the statue. Everyone came and bowed before the idol, except for three men|
|People who saw this act of defiance came and told the king to have them arrested.|
|If you refuse to bow before my image, you will be thrown into the fire.|
|We do not bow to anyone but God, He alone can save us. Even if he does not we will not bow.|
|And so they were thrown into the fire.|
|The king looked into the fire. "Didn't I cast three men into the fire? Yet, I see four!|
|When he saw inside he saw, God was with them in the fire.|
|He had the men removed from the fire.Nothing had happened to them.|
|The king worshiped the Lord saying that there is no other God that can save.|
With Muslims, I like to explain the following..
What shape / form did God appear in this story?
I have just completed work on this book that details how I began to work among the Turkmen.
The Turkmen are a minority group that are found throughout the Middle East. This book combines both instruction and also personal stories of my time with them.
Although, you might not be dealing with the Turkmen, the lessons in this book can help you wherever you find yourself serving.
