Why do we seem to hear about the two different religions of Islam and Islam? Spencer uses the most widely accepted muslim sources to describe the religious justification for the vast majority of terrorists in the world today. He presents hadiths and sunna that are not disputed, but mainly ignored. He wants to inform others as to why the jihadists cite Muhammad when they engage in terrorism. Also taking modern apologists head on, Spencer reveals why wishful thinking is contradicted by Muhammad's own words and is no substitute for true reform. Don't make uninformed judgements for or against Islam. Get this book and get educated.

If you took this book and Tariq Ramadan's (who is actually a Muslim) 'In the footsteps of the Prophet', you would think they were talking about two different people. That is because this book is based on translated sources which then get twisted by the author himself to suit the title of the book and his agenda. Tariq Ramadan, on the other hand, has access to all Islamic sources (not just translated ones). You would get a much better and authentic picture of the Prophet from Ramadan's book, certainly not this garbage.

    Appalled

    I am apalled at this ridiculous statement that Islam is a war-hungry religion and it has no values. My motto is do not judge something if you dont know the truth about it.How is a man that is not a muslim supposed to write a reliable story of Islam and its most valuable prophet. Americans -including the author of this book -are brainwashed into thinking musims are all bombers and terrorists. If you want the truth read the Koran and do your studies to find out the real truth, because I would not go around saying things about christianity or any other religion, so dont do that for Islam. Especially if you dont KNOW!!!!

    This book is nothing but an imagination of a person who afraids living in this world. Robert Spencer defenetily who suffers from Islamophobia. This person has wrote rediculos book about religion. Everybody sees what he or she wants to see, it means that Spencer wants to make people believe that islam is kind of terroristic religion, which will ultimately change readers opinion about islam into 180 degrees.

    Disappointing

    All of the information presented in this book is incredibly biased towards an audience searching for corruption in Islam. I study Islamic Law at a State University in the US and found this book repulsive and incredibly unacademic. I advise anyone who reads this book to do so with caution. I find it very disappointing that any scholar would publish such a work.

    Very disappointing and false.

    This is the most ignorant book I have ever come across...'Founder of the world's most intolerant religion'?!?! That is the most ignorant statement I have ever read. Read the Quran and teachings from actual scholars to find out the truth about Islam and the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. This book should be categorized under non-fiction because that is exactly what it is.

    This is very one sided. If you want to know the truth, you need

    This is very one sided. If you want to know the truth, you need to research for yourself. The Quran is a very easy read, and there's only one version. Read it for yourself, and you will have a much better understanding. Why read an entire book, when it would be easier and more accurate to read the Quran yourself?
