Sept. 28, 2017

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — A Concordia Lutheran High School teacher’s comparative religions tract has sold over half a million copies worldwide.

The tract “Jesus and the Qur'an” was written by the Rev. Dr. Joseph P. Gudel and published by Good News Publishers in 2008. The publication aims to share the Gospel in a positive light with Muslims by highlighting the similarities between the two religions.

The tract has been published in English, French, German and Spanish. Gudel plans to translate the tract into Turkish and Arabic in the near future.

“Almost all of my writings over the years have been in the area of comparative non-Christian religions: what they are and how Christians can share the Gospel in a positive way with non-believers,” Gudel said. “These are especially useful for our students when they go off to colleges around the country.”

Gudel is the director of campus ministries and a theology teacher at Concordia.
