Enlightening¿
The Facts On Islam was written for Christians to assist them in understanding Islam. It should be pointed out that it is written from a Christian point of view. Christians tend to be ignorant when it comes to other religions. For Christians to minister and evangelize to the world, we must come to understand their beliefs. The authors successfully prove that our Lord and Allah are not the same. The Facts On Islam is a small book, and, of course, it cannot cover every aspect of Islam; however as an overview, this book is enlightening.

This book is miss-titled because it is focused on arguing details of differences between Islam and Christian beliefs. Only the first of five sections describes Islam, the Quran and the Muslim beliefs. Then four sections argue the differences compared with Christianity. I found the book totally unfair in NOT recognizing glaring similarities and bridges between the two religions that share important common foundations ¿ Abrahamic roots and a Quran that mentions, acknowledges and supports nine key books of the Bible. In Surah 3:48 Allah (El Shaddai) gave to and taught Isa (Jesus) the Tavrat (5 books aka Pentatuch, aka Torah) and the Injils (4 books aka Gospels). AND in Surah 10:94 the Quran specifically tells Muslims that when in doubt, find answers in those (nine) books written before you. Understandings of common foundations and bridges are deliberately ignored, if not turned into arguments which will exacerbate any ill-will and cause non-constructive focus on differences between the beliefs. Instead, the book should encourage truthful understanding. And there is no background provided of Muhammad, the founding prophet. And the author¿s footnote references include other authors and translators almost exclusively, rarely quoting the Quran directly. I recommend this book only if you as a Christian are trying to bash Muslims and stir up animosity between the faiths.
