I listened to this audio book out of a frustration of why Moslems and Christian aren't natural brothers. We have so much in common, or so I thought. After listening to this book I understand it's not Christianity that's the problem (except perhaps insofar as some strains have become weak and meaningless). The problem is the fundamental teachings of Islam. While some have complained Mr. Spencer did not consult 'all the writings', the history he presented here is nonetheless validated daily in current events and helps one better understand what is happening in the world.

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.

    Wake up call to the world.

    I would recommend this scholarly work to any one who wishes to know the truth about this so-called 'peaceful' religion. Why I say this is simple--I lived under the auspices of this 'peaceful' religion for most of the last 52 yrs and was subject to all of its true blessings. Believe me, anyone who wishes to know the truth about Islam, without the pleasure of living within its 'hatred of all infidels' society, should read this book. Mr. Spencer, having lived in and studied the Middle East for nearly 40 yrs, has put before the world a warning of imminent doom--being brought on by ingnorance of the facts and the embracing of political correctness. It is a shame that the Western world is not being informed of what is happening right now in Europe. How the PC acceptance of a religion based on 'Surrender' 'the true meaning of the word Islam' is destroying the christian nations of the world. Why I say this is simple: for the first 45 years of my life I was a dedicated Mosque attending Muslim in the Philipines. Then, just a few years ago, an Imam from Iran spoke at my mosque. What he proclaimed as the fundamental right of Islamic law to rule the world through whatever means necessary frightened and dissallusioned many of my family and friends. From that day forward, my once quiet, peaceful mosque, became a center for the promotion of the true intent of theo-political religion. My eyes were opened, and I, at once, left the Philipines and soon after, left the Islamic faith--only to be threatened with death several times before finally escaping to Hawaii. Yes, I know what Islam not only was but what it has become--a threat to all other people and religions. Those of you who are blinded by the touchy-feelly PC nonsense that pervades modern thinking need to open your eyes to the truth--read this book.

    A reviewer

    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.

    Historically Outstanding

    As a scholar of history and religion I found this volume to be thought provoking, insightful, and factually accurate. The insights and truth presented is a must read for any intellectual seeking knowledge about the 'religion of peace.'

    Overwhelming

    The Depths of my being were altered forever from reading this book. I apprecialted the education this thoughough author has provided. Had to put the book down SEVERAL times because this factual, cited, information was so provative. Now my eyes and heart are wide open. An absolute must read!
