Is the Scandal for Muslims the How or the Who?
2018 Vol. 5: Sept/Oct
As a Christian of Muslim background, I appreciate the many challenges the church has faced over the past 14 centuries in presenting the gospel to Muslims. It is not surprising there is much debate in Christian circles on how best to accomplish this commission. The fault line in this debate seems to have settled over translation issues related to the divine, familial terms, “Father” and “Son of God.” Since Bible translations rest upon certain theological and missiological foundations, any miscalculations in laying these foundations will tip the whole “House of Translation” out of plumb.
