Civil Yet Firm

I agree with Madeleine Albright on the importance of learning more about Islam (see The Mighty and the Almighty). From an individual Christian’s perspective, the challenge is how to remain committed to one’s faith without being discourteous or uncivil to another person’s faith, and yet remain firm on matters of honest disagreement and not compromise one’s duty to evangelize. The danger of extremism is real, as Albright points out:

It does not take much to lead groups of people with extreme views to believe their faith is under attack and that their duty is to defend it by every available means.
