Meet the Author

Daniel Ali

Daniel Ali is a Catholic convert from Islam. After many years of study and reflection, Daniel was led to the foot of the Cross — to the realization that the God of the Universe desires an intimate relationship with man and that He did, in fact, send His Son to dwell among us. Daniel was received into the Catholic Church by Father William G. Most in 1998. Daniel has gained national note as the founder of the Christian Islamic Forum as well as his Video series with Father Mitch Pacwa, S.J., the host of EWTN Live! Today he travels throughout the world leading seminars on Islam. Daniel and his wife live in Virginia. He can be reached at .


Robert Spencer

Robert Spencer began his study of Islam in 1980 when he first read the Koran at the invitation of Palestinian and Saudi Muslims. This initial interest was fueled by his grandparents’ unique history as Christians who were raised under the last great Muslim empire, the Ottoman Empire, and who immigrated to the United States in 1919. Spencer is the author of two previous books on Islam, Islam Unveiled: Disturbing Questions About the World’s Fastest Growing Faith (San Francisco: Encounter Books, 2002), which quickly became a bestseller, and an indepth study of jihad, Onward Muslim Soldiers: How Jihad Still Threatens America and the West (Washington, D.C.: Regnery Publishing, 2003). He can be reached at .
