The idea for “Grace and Truth: Toward Christlike Relationships with Muslims” was spawned during a global gathering of some 50 evangelical leaders concerned about the increasing alienation between the church (especially in the West) and Muslims. To counter this trend, we set out to create a statement on how followers of Jesus should relate to Muslims. We wrote both a detailed Exposition and an abridged Affirmation for people to sign. Signing the Affirmation does not necessarily imply complete agreement on the part of the signatories with every detail of the Exposition; they are two distinct documents.
Grace and truth is a consensus document. As such, it uses language and emphasizes themes that bridge the spectrum of evangelical thinking. For some, it may feel too conservative (with too much emphasis on “truth”). For others, it may feel too affirming (with too much emphasis on “grace”). We want evangelicals to address these issues biblically. So we encourage you to use these documents as a starting point for discussion within your church or organization. Critique it and rewrite it in such a way as to better reflect the perspective of your organization. May God use this to help us come closer to reflecting “Grace and Truth” to the Muslims in our lives.
