J. Dudley Woodberry | Sharing the love of Jesus with Muslims today

Oct 13, 2018

J. Dudley Woodberry and Graham Hill discuss how we might share the love of Jesus with Muslims today. The Global Church Project episode #128.

“In these troubled times, with the increased interest in peacebuilding between Muslims and Christians and the increased responsiveness to the gospel among Muslims, it is evidently the fullness of time for Muslims. Let us as individuals and as an institution actively participate in what God is doing.”

~ Dr. Woodberry, in his sermon during the 50th anniversary celebration of the School of Intercultural Studies. See https://www.fuller.edu/faculty/j-dudley-woodberry/

J. Dudley Woodberry is dean emeritus of Fuller Theological Seminary and senior professor of Islamic studies at Fuller’s School of Intercultural Studies and is considered one of the foremost Christian scholars of Islam. He has served as consultant on the Muslim world to President Carter, the State Department, USAID, and other US government agencies. He has also been an active part of the Zwemer Institute for Muslim Studies and has served as coordinator and acting senior associate of the Muslim track of the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization.
