Middle East Resources Newsletter - 2006

We praise the Lord for twelve years of “retirement” ministry as of June, 2006. We delight to see our “resources” being sought after and thank God also for the health and strength he has given us to handle all the requests.

It seems that we are now deeply involved in both publications and distribution. We welcomed our third book from the printer this April. Sales are going well. We have had two unique opportunities in May to both lecture and sell our books. We hope you will enquire if you can increase the readership of our latest book “An Introduction to Islam.” It is a selection of 33 articles chosen in the hope of helping people to get a better understanding of Islam.

Our three books are: “The Bible and Islam”, “Muslims Meeting Christ” and “An Introduction to Islam.”

An Introduction to Islam by Bassam and Shirley Madany. ($12.50) Thirty-three articles currently to be found on are now available in print form. Articles which have elicited comments like the following: "I count it as such a privilege to be in the orbit of God's blessing in your ministry."...."Your material is so right on, and just what I need to get to know about what is happening in that troubled part of the world."....."I thank the Lord upon every remembrance of you and your ministry. You have been a pillar in our generation in holding to your uncompromising approach to Islam."

Muslims Meeting Christ by Shirley W. Madany. Published in July 2005 ($10.00)It is a joyful book based on some of the responses to our daily Arabic broadcast, Saatu'l Islah. Comments from an elderly Christian scholar and friend were an encouragement: "I read your book with tears in my eyes. Thank you for writing it." You will thrill to the testimonies of young and old, from Morocco to Iraq, as they tell of their love for Jesus.

The second printing of the Russian version of The Bible and Islam, came off the press in December 2001. To obtain copies please contact: , our Christian Reformed Church missionary in Russia.

You may write and purchase the English version or you are invited to freely download and print your own copy from our web site. Within the last month there has been a second printing of The Bible and Islam, undertaken by Life Challenge Africa, and printed in Nairobi, Kenya. And presently we are in correspondence with a missionary in Nigeria who will be supervising another reprint being done very shortly for use in West Africa.

This is all the Lord’s doing and we are merely His servants.

Joyfully serving the Lord,

Bassam and Shirley Madany
