Written in a popular and engaging style, it begins with a panoramic view of invasions and campaigns, including those of the Prophet Mohammad, and quickly moves to today's events, including terrorist attacks over the past five years.This historical survey reveals how certain Islamic beliefs have created an international network of violent groups, including Al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden's operational base. The authors explore the differences between these militant groups and the peaceful majority of Muslim people and consider the question as to which form of Islam will prevail. The voices of moderate Islamic scholars and clerics then conclude the book with the call for a rejection of radical Shari'a law and a focus, instead, on an inner battle against evil.Readers interested in understanding the history of Islam and its conflicts with Christianity and Judaism, including pastors and theology and political science students, will benefit from this objective book and its illustrative stories, maps, and charts.

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 growing.

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.

Martin examines a large number of new religious movements; included are major groups such as Christian Science, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Jehovah's Witnesses, Armstrongism, Theosophy, the Bahá'í Faith, Unitarian Universalism, Scientology, and the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as well as minor groups including various New Age and groups based on Eastern religions. The beliefs of other world religions such as Islam and Buddhism are also discussed.

He covers each group's history and teachings, and contrasts them with those of mainstream Christianity, from a decidedly critical, evangelical perspective.[1][2]

Martin defines "a cult" as "a group of people gathered about a specific person—or person's misinterpretation of the Bible", while admitting that in spite of "distorting Scripture" such groups' teachings may contain "considerable truths" which have Biblical support but have become de-emphasized by mainstream Christianity, such as divine healing and prophecy.
