The Truth about Islam Gregory E. With the plethora of books on Islam flooding the market Reformed Christians will find the works of Anees Zaka refreshing. The two books I am reviewing are a perfect complement to help prepare church officers to engage our Muslim neighbors with the gospel. The Truth about Islam compares Islam and Christianity based on the texts of their respective scriptures. Ten Steps in Witnessing to Muslims, as the title tells, is a practical manual describing the evangelistic engagement itself. This review will focus more on The Truth about Islam. The Truth about Islam fulfills its subtitle admirably through the inclusion of numerous charts and tables thirty one tables in all contrasting the Bible and the Noble Qur'an with quotations on a variety of topics. Zaka and Coleman have packed a great deal of primary source material into a small space. This adds significantly to the value of the book.

I do not doubt that Islam according to its own scriptures is not conducive to democracy in any form, as Zaka and Coleman rightly assert. Nor do I doubt that consistent Islam represents a serious threat to our civil freedoms. What I do doubt is that it is the church's job to fix that problem by "recapturing the culture.

Nor is such an enterprise the proper response to the world-dominating intentions of Islam. In fairness to Zaka and Coleman, the point they are trying to make is that democracy requires Christianity. The very freedom of thought that Zaka and Coleman laudably praise comes precisely from the Christian doctrine of the spirituality of the church, which promotes civil tolerance in the interest of separating church and state; but this is not the gospel.

The gospel is supremely intolerant in the sense that it claims to be exceptional. But American exceptionalism is not the message of the church. The very freedom that the clear separation of church and state allows is not a call for Christian civilization, whatever the benefits Christian presence may have on a given culture.

If some Muslims use this freedom in the quest to impose the will of Allah, it is the business of the state to stop them from committing treason or other crimes. It is the business of the church to preach the gospel. Raising this issue in the way the authors do confuses the very cause of evangelizing Muslims and, oddly, undermines the very point they are making so clearly in the rest of the book. Furthermore, it is an open question whether or not the beguiling prosperity of American culture, combined with its vague religion of moralistic therapeutic deism, can be resisted by Muslim immigrants.

Oddly, and fortunately, in the last chapter the following excellent statement is made in apparent contradiction to some of what is said between pages and "Understand and clarify that Western culture is not biblical Christianity" The final chapter happily gets back on track with some excellent advice on how to be faithful witnesses to our Muslim neighbors. Using John 4, Luke 24, and Acts 2 and 17 as models, principles for engagement are clearly summarized.

Samenvatting In this dialogue between a famous atheist and a former radical, Sam Harris and Maajid Nawaz invite you to join an urgently needed conversation: Is Islam a religion of peace or war? Is it amenable to reform? Why do so many Muslims seem drawn to extremism? The authors demonstrate how two people with very different views can find common ground.

Those interested in a deferential and detailed dialogue about human rights, Islam, jihadism, and pluralism will find this book both enlightening and engaging. Their back-and-forth clarifies multiple confusions that plague the public conversation about Islam.

Sam Harris and Maajid Nawaz should be commended for conducting a frank and wide-ranging conversation about a number of key issues around religion, reform, and Islam in the modern world. Nawaz's approach is based upon detailed familiarity with extremist worldviews, and with the history and tradition of reform theology and renewal within Islam that desperately needs to be amplified.

The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Contemporary Muslim-Christian Encounters

Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread througout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient RomeWinston Churchill "In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wanderng Arab of the lineage of Hagar i.

Adopting from the New Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion.
