Answering Islam evaluates the claims of orthodox Islam and examines the evidence for the Christian counterclaim, preparing you with strong apologetic answers. This revised edition contains more resources and updated information throughout.

"This book is a must for everyone concerned about defending the Christian faith. Dr. Geisler and his coauthor, a former Muslim, have given one of the most comprehensive expositions and most complete evaluations of Islam in print."
Josh McDowell, author, Evidence That Demands a Verdict

"Answering Islam is a valuable tool for those wrestling with the theological barriers that separate one billion Muslims from personal faith in Jesus Christ."
Patrick Cate, president, International Missions, Inc.

"The Muslim presence in the United States continues to grow. It is important that we have a clearly written and fairly presented statement of what Muslims believe and how we as Christians may present the claims of Christ to them in a persuasive and loving way."
Ronald Nash, Reformed Theological Seminary

"This book is a theological masterpiece, the most lucid and comprehensive theological analysis and critique of Islam from a Christian perspective I have ever seen. It is invaluable as a tool for understanding the most serious religious challenge to Christianity in the modern world."
R. C. Sproul, Ligonier Ministries

Norman L. Geisler, Ph.D., is president of Southern Evangelical Seminary and the author of more than fifty books, including the Baker Encyclopedia of Christian Apologetics.

    Accurate and devastating

    This book accurately represents Islam beliefs and provides a devastating critique against it. The claims to misrepresentations here by the reviewers can be safely ignored -- even Islam experts admit that this book fairly represents their religion, and offers a strong challenge against it. Perhaps the average Muslim does not know too much about his religion?

    Good reasons to reject Islam & trust in Christ

    Geisler & Saleeb have produced a very useful book that examines Islam, evaluates it's claims from a Christian viewpoint, & defends orthodox Christianity. There is a lot of useful information in the book that evaluates Mohammed as a prophet, and the claims that the Qur'an is God's Word.The authors expose the red herrings, and straw men arguments of Muslims apologists, and especially deal with the Muslim misuse of the Bible to 'find' Islam doctrines, and 'prophecies' of Mohammed. The reader will find the book's Christology to be lucid, and informative, and very biblical, and there are some fascinating facts about the New Testament and it's integrity. The only two main problems are that the author's could have elaborated on some details, and some things are dealt with more philosphically rather than bibilically. Overall, however, Answering Islam will form an important and handy reference for the average Christian, giving him/her the major arguments against Islam and for Christ. I also recommend this book for Muslims who want to understand what Christians REALLY believe and see through the false claims of Islamic teachers.

    Sadly The Bickering Continues

    Ironically enough this book is written by two non-Muslims who claim to be such experts on Islam or the Quraan. I find it completely offensive when people of one faith spend or actually waste their time disproving one religion instead of sharing the beauty of their own religion. I myself was born a Christian and still am in many aspects but I believe in America's notion of freedom of religion which celebrates the differences in religion and not the the bickering among them. I believe that we can derive good from all major forms of religion.

    Islam is Good For it is Time Only(1350years ago)

    This book tells a complete review of Islam , which was written by Mohamad ,he took some passages from the Bible and some from the Pagan life he lived in and wrote the Quraan for that time only. it doesn't applay to our time period.

    MISLEADING AND POOR BOOK ON ISLAM

    This is a misleading and terrible book on the religion of islam. Written as by a well known Christian apologist, this book brings about the stereotypes about Islam and misquotes the Quran and other sources out of their context. Muslim scholars have already refuted the claims purported in this book. In any dialogue, at least one must be honest with quoting sources. This book doesn't do any of that
