Mohammed was a great military man. He was able to take what the Nestorians taught (a heretical form of Christianity that was exiled into Persia) and add to the story to create Islam. Since there are different sects of Islam there (of course) are differing opinions as to the peacefulness of the religion itself. However, this book shows that there is a major difference in the fundamentals of Christianity and Islam. Islam's foundation is violent, whereas Christianity's is not.

When I first started thinking about reverting to Islam, I read this book thinking that I would get a better feel for Islam. I must say I was sorely disappointed. It is written by two brothers who converted to Christianity. They are arguing against a religion that they don't believe in and yet trying to make it seem like they are a part of Islam. Don't be fooled. This is not a book to explain Islam.

    Good look at the teaching of Islam

    An interesting and courageous book that focuses on the religion and its suggested worldview... not the people. To analyze Islam, look at its teaching (Qur'an) and its leader (Mohammed), not the Muslim people. To analyze Christianity, look at the Bible and Jesus Christ, not its fallible believers. The book is an honest attempt to do this and is well documented. Why am I not surprised to see a review (below) from an anonymous diversity trainer, who claims the book is inaccurate, distorted and deceptive? I would plead that one read the sources (Qur'an and Bible) and investigate the lives of the leaders (Mohammed and Jesus) before hurling out allegedly tolerant invectives in a review.
