    For the Believer's Weekly review of Christian web sites, I reviewed "The
    Arabic Bible Outreach Ministry" at
    The review is posted at the WorldVillage Believer's Weekly site at

    The site has a lot of material and links to resources on Islam.

    As Christianity must be defined as faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of
    God, who was fully God and fully Man and who died on the cross and was
    resurrected for the forgiveness of sins, I don't think Islam qualifies
    as any sort of branch of Christianity. A form of monotheism derived from
    the roots of Judaism (and thus, Christianity), it is only a relation.
    The Moslems are as lost without Christ Jesus as any sinner.
