A Fuller Theological Seminary professor says Christianity could be on the rise again in Europe amid reports that Muslim refugees are converting to the faith.
“European churches have struggled for decades to share the Gospel with modern secular Europeans,” Matthew Kaemingk, a professor at the Fuller Theological Seminary in Seattle, Washington, said Monday in an article on Fox News. “They have found Muslim immigrants to be much more open to the message of Christianity.”
The reports come from several European countries that are accepting migrants, including Germany and Austria, which are seeing Muslim converts turning to various denominations, both Protestant and Roman Catholic.
Kaemingk, whose book Christian Hospitality and Muslim Immigration in an Age of Fear is set to be published this fall, believes that ordinary Europeans feel their material comforts replace God.
