Product Description

Synopsis

"Answering Islam" evaluates the claims of orthodox Islam from a Christian point of view, appealing especially to the Qur'an and the Bible. The authors, a Christian apologist and a former Muslim, provide apologetic answers to prepare Christians for ministry in the Islamic context. This second edition contains two new appendices, a new preface written in light of September 11, 2001, and updated information throughout. "This book is a theological masterpiece, the most lucid and comprehensive theological analysis and critique of Islam from a Christian perspective I have ever seen. It is invaluable as a tool for understanding the most serious religious challenge to Christianity in the modern world." - R. C. Sproul, Ligonier Ministries.

Format: Paperback
Norman L Geisler and Abdul Saleeb has done a very good job in properly representing the views and beliefs of the muslim faith and providing the Christian perspective on the issue and her response to challenges made by Islam. A proper view of Islam is greatly needed to confront and correct the stereotype that most Westerners have against Islam; this the authors has successfully done in the first part of their. A balanced view, with liberally sprinkled quotes and references to various sources throughout makes it a well-researched and written book. Simply state, the first part is an excellent factual representation of the Islam view. In the second part, the authors attempt to evaluate Islam from a Christian perspective. They tactfully offer scholarly criticism through evaluation of basic muslim beliefs with a douse of philosophy and logia. I've personally come across similar criticisms confronting islam, but this was minus the usual inflammatory rhetorics which makes it a pleasant reading. However, with all the good points, the authors fell into the fallacy of ad hominem comments against the Prophet of Islam during their evaluation of Islam. To put the record straight however, I believe they felt it necessary to question the prophethood of Muhammad according to biblical criteria since belief in the latter as the last of a succession of prophets since Judaism is an integral part of muslim faith. This I believe is a blot in the otherwise well written book. Apart from this minor point to moot, the other evaluations in this sections on other aspects of Islam are well organised and factually presented. The last section of the book concerns the attempts of the authors to defend the Christian belief over and against Islam.Read more ›

Christians have used this resource to gain a basic understanding of Islam, probably more than any other. There's a reason why - it is very simply a great read that is easy to understand. This book covers the basics, and gives just a tad of history. If you want to gain a basic understanding of Islam from the Christian perspecitve, then this is the book to buy. Many Muslims, after reading Abdul Saleeb's testimony, have even made the transition to Christianity because of this book.

Good introduction to traditional orthodox Islam, plus a refutation of its claims from an evangelical Christian position. The critique of Islamic monotheism is devastating. I have yet to see an adequate Muslim response to it.

Format: Paperback
This Volume by Geisler and Abdul Saleeb is substantial and covers all the aspects pertinent to the discussion ie.'Answering Islam'. Firstly, the contribution of Abdul is valuable as he was a former Muslim (who has converted to Christ) and his input gives credance to chapters 1 to 6 on the Basic doctrines of orthodox Islam as a first-hand source for the tenets. Secondly Geisler himself properly evaluates the Muslim views and preconceptions of divinity, revelation and prophethood and replies to the typical Muslim charges towards their Christian 'cousins' and being the fine apologist that he is, culiminates his Christian Response section with a defense of Salvation by the Cross. His approach is both sound and scholarly, with systematic & step-by-step assessments of the similarities and points of differences between Christianity and Islam. This Book will greatly benefit BOTH non-Christians and Christians alike who are interested in the subject and will certainly give them value for their money. The Appendices are comprehensive; throwing light on sectarian and cultic strands & interpretations of Islam, the 'gospel of Barnabas' and tracing its sources, showing it for the forgery that it is; and even not avoiding popular muslim accusations against the New Testament. Finally, theres a good Glossary section, an even better Bibliography (with Both Christian and non-christian Authors) and an excellent Suggested Reading section-for further research and study. ALL these are found in One Volume -what more can one ask for the layman as well as the specialist !

This book is excellent in it's points. It clearly points out that the Moslem faith is not based on any Historical facts but based on dreams and imaginations.

Format: Paperback
It is terribly difficult to locate objective treatment of the subject matter of Islam! The Christian writers frequently unwittingly cloud some of the realities because of their own subjective interests and their lack of information. And, of course, the Muslim writings are infinitely skewed and not at all credible.
But Geisler and Saleeb have done here a masterfully insightful work which cuts right to the core of the subject, without bias toward either side.
Answering Islam is definitely an "I-couldn't-put-it-down-type" book; excitingly written, logically evolved, and totally fair to all sides of the issue.
I only wish I had written it!
Sincerely, Dr. W. Eugene Neill

Format: Paperback
This book gives a very good perception of Islam in the first part, clearing some of the common Christian misconcepts about Islam. In the second part, authors are trying to compare the Claims of both religions and evaluate. Second part of this book will help any Muslim if they want to know the truth.
