Rev. Colin Chapman, author of Cross & Crescent: Responding to the Challenge of Islam, is a leading Evangelical scholar specialised in Islamic studies.
‘Colin Chapman’s first engagement with Islam came through working with the Church Mission Society in teaching roles in Egypt and Lebanon over seventeen years. In his last post, 1999-2003, he was lecturer in Islamic Studies at the Near East School of Theology in Beirut, Lebanon. Before that he taught at Trinity College Bristol and was Principal of Crowther Hall, the former CMS Training College at Selly Oak, Birmingham. His books include: Cross and Crescent: Responding to the Challenges of Islam (IVP, 1995; new edition September 2007), and ‘Islamic Terrorism’: Is there a Christian Response? (Grove, 2005). He is now enjoying semi-retirement in Milton, Cambridge.’
