Is Islam a religion of peace or of violence?

Islam is a religion we can no longer afford to ignore. It is one
of the fastest-growing religions in the world. Newspapers and
television news regularly bring stories from the Middle East, but
more importantly, the Muslim world has come to us. Between 5 and 7
million Muslims currently live in America, and that number is

Recognizing the importance of understanding Islam, R. C. Sproul
and Abdul Saleeb had a series of conversations about how Islam
differs from the Christian faith, and those conversations became
the basis for this book. As a convert from Islam, Saleeb has spent
many years studying Islam and Christianity. With Dr. Sproul he
focuses on four basic areas in which Islam rejects the very
foundations on which Christianity is built:

  • the nature and authority of the Bible

  • the nature of God

  • the character of humankind

  • the deity and sacrificial death of Christ

Sproul and Saleeb will help you understand Islam better and give
you an intellectual basis for answering the Muslim faith-perhaps
when interacting with Muslims in your own neighborhood or city. In
addition to discussing the differences between Islam and
Christianity, Saleeb gives his own perspective on the "dark side"
of Islam in light of violence perpetrated by Muslim extremists in
recent years.

    Excellent book

    This book contrasts the differing beliefs between Christianity and Islam. The title of the book comes from the last chapter, which refers to how some terrorist groups use Islam to justify their actions. This book is not trying to promote hatred against Muslims; on the contrary, as the authors state in the book more than once. This book should be read by Christians and Muslims to better understand the beliefs of each religion.

    Anyone who converts is basically doing so for economic reasons, otherwise what is the difference in any of the three religions? They each pray to the same God, each have rituals to follow, each believe their God is the only true God, and each chant peace while killing dissenters. Mr. Saleeb is just another 'mick on the make' attempting to jump into a rather crowded circle of converts to catch the golden ring, for financial gain. If you can convert you can revert--so who can trust what he says? I am sure God would not trust a person who appears to be shopping for an acceptable God. He apparently has no loyalty to the land of his birth and the people whence he came from!! The path to God 'whatever they call him 'Allah, Lord or Yahweh'lies in one's heart and should not be for sale or conversion!!!
