Overview

Emir Caner, converted Sunni Muslim and coauthor of the bestselling Unveiling Islam, joins apologist John Ankerberg, host of the powerhouse John Ankerberg Show, to provide a helpful resource for informed Muslim—Christian interaction.

Immersed in the Islamic worldview as the son of a devout mosque leader, Caner gives readers the real picture of women under Islam. He and Ankerberg delve under the claims of Muslim apologists and open readers’ eyes to...

  • the conditions of near–slavery women suffer in many Islamic cultures
  • the contempt for women found in the Qu’ran
  • Muhammad’s ambivalence toward females
  • the dehumanizing double standard regarding men’s and women’s sexual behavior
  • the problems with judging Islam by considering only North American Muslims

Finally, Ankerberg and Caner leave no doubt why, in the light of history, Christianity is the truly radical religion regarding the treatment and status of women. A great source for understanding and discussion.

First of al, what does john ankerberg really know about islam? If you'd like to know about islam and women, why don't you ask a muslim woman in hijab how she feels about hijab.

I have been studying women and the relationship they have to the Islamic faith for three years consistently. This book does have some relevant points and the authors have proper credentials, however, the perspective here is strongly that of the Christian faith. I feel a definite bias toward the Christian faith and see an attack on Islam here. So if you are reading this book for research purposes, I would carefully regard the perspective of the authors and their purpose. If you are reading this book to support Christian views on Islam, this is a good read.
