Phil Parshall on the Muslim-convert Church

This book is kinda old (1980) but really broke new ground in its day. It has been immensely influential.

If the Muslim-convert church is basically homogeneous [which Parshall advocates] and has had minimal contact with a Western type of Christianity, then it will have little or nor problem with contextualized worship. The convert is just following ritual he has known all his life. He appreciates the familiar. The church is then set up to draw and accommodate the Muslim inquirer. No new believer needs to feel culturally ashamed to invite a Muslim friend or relative to attend a service of worship.
