Persian Conversions by Phillip E. Johnson

Persian Conversions

by Phil Johnson

I have been intrigued for several years by reports of Muslims having visions of Jesus and then seeking out missionaries to learn more. I've remained skeptical, as the reports I can find on the internet seem to be hearsay or from very limited sources.

Last week, my wife, who works in the church library, brought home the August issue of Christianity Today. She thought I would want to read the cover story of two scientists who are both Christians but who have very different understandings of origins. I did enjoy reading the article, even though, since it included only a theistic evolutionist and a young-earth creationist, I felt it left out an important and growing view of how to understand the origins issues.
