Issues of religious diversity and interfaith understanding take centre stage in today's post-modern global society. Since September 11 (911), the church's mission to engage the Muslim community has been met with both obstacles and opportunities. The quintessential of global Christian witness is to have a pellucid grasp of the dangers and opportunities for Christian-Muslim witness.

Seeking a common witness can pose theological concerns for those who seek interfaith understanding among Muslims.
