Word of Life seeks to resource Christians to share the good news of Jesus with Muslims. We are a small media charity, based in Oldham, Greater Manchester, founded just over twenty years ago. Our founder became a follower of Jesus from an Ahmadiyya Muslim background in Pakistan. He came to England and the ministry began around a Bible course which uses the Qur’an as well as the Bible to introduce seekers to Jesus. This Basic Course is available in English, Arabic, Farsi, Bengali, Turkish and Urdu. We also offer a number of courses on books of the Bible and topical studies in a selection of south Asian Languages.
Each year we produce bilingual Scripture calendars in eleven languages, which are a gentle way of introducing the Bible into homes where it is not read. A reply slip on the back of these calendars invites people to send off for the free Bible course.
As well as the courses and calendars, we produce leaflets which seek to answer some of the main Muslim objections to Christianity.
