Use of the Arabic Word "allah" in Christian Witness to Muslims

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued

I wrote an article about the use of the Arabic word "allah" in Christian witness to Muslims a while back. It's available online here: http://www.truthformuslims.com/articles/marion_2005_07_25_arabic_allah.htm.

A link from that page shows a scanned page from an Arabic - English Bible using the Arabic word "allah: in John 3:16 and a scanned page from the Dari (Afghan Farsi / Afghan Persian) New Testament which uses the Persian word "khodah" for God, which is used both by Muslims and Christians in Persian speaker areas (Iran - Farsi, Afghanistan - Dari, Tajikistan - Tajik) instead of the word "allah."
