Wasn't quite my take on the article. What I got out of it was to learn about each other so we can enter into some rational dialog. And by the way, there are some really damaging books out there written by people who have no idea.
Now, this was written by a Christian, for Christians in a Christian magazine. You're not going to see "Accept them for who they are" or "Don't try to push our ideas on them". But he also didn't come out with "This is the best way to convert people!"
I think it was more along the lines of "Learn about Islam, and decide for yourself."
As always, it's interesting how different people can read the same thing and take very different ideas out of it.
