Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having studied Christianity and Islam for some time, I eagerly purchased this book with a keen sense of anticipation to read the author's own personal analysis of Islam.
Other studies which I have accessed from the source have seriously impressed me with the manner in which the Hebrew-Christian Scriptures have been dissected and analysed.
To that end I was initially disappointed when I discovered that the book was not in fact primarily a study of Islam in itself. However, the book does indeed address many of the aspects of Islam and goes to some length to reveal to the reader that the God of the Bible and the God of Islam are definitely NOT one and the same Person.
These potentially contentious issues are approached sensitively and respectively with appropriate references being made in relation to the Hebrew-Christian Scriptures and the Islamic Holy books to clarify this point from the perspective of both sides. The text revealing from the Holy Bible that the God of the Bible has a Son, Jesus Christ, whereas the God of Islam, Allah, is described in the Quran as having no son whatsoever. Other pivotal differences between the two religions are also addressed with due reference to the above sources.
This book is described as specifically being written out of a burden for the Church and as a "wake-up call for Christians" with the book declaring that due to the ravages of secularisation and other similar "distractions", the Church has largely turned it's back upon God and left a vacuum which is allegedly being increasingly filled by Islam.
The reader is shown where the Church has failed in so many areas and where repentance and renewal are so desperately needed.

I suspect you will find 2 extremes of review here. Those who like David pawson's style will rate this book highly. Those who don't, and those who aren't Christians will hate this book. There is no middle ground.

This is written from the point of view that Jesus is the only way to God, that Christianity is more than a religion, and that the Church over the millennia has mis-sold Jesus to the world, peddling instead some half baked mumbo jumbo to try to make people feel better. As a result, other religions, and Islam in particular are now more popular than Christianity in this country. This book is an attempt to change that around. Therefore, if you can't agree with the first sentence, you won't like this book.

If you can agree with it, this book will challenge some of your assumptions about Islam, Christianity, and what is important.

I'm really struggling to describe what effect this book has had on me...

If you are feeling in any way apathetic about your Christian faith right now, or just that living in the U.K. in this day and age saps you of your zeal for God, then this book is guaranteed to give you a big-picture perspective and re-align you priorities.

It's well-researched and written with humility and Biblical authority, and I totally agree with the words on the back cover: essential reading for all Christians.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough - please read it, and allow God to speak to you about this critically important subject.

Excellent book, well written with a sound biblical basis to his argument and insights. This is not knocking Muslims but looks objectively at the Spirit of Islam and it's heart.

Fantastic analysis. Although personally I think atheism is more on the rise in this country that Islam, I can from reading this how the vast majority of the UK population would be vulnerable to a rise in Islamic power- either in the form of Muslims living in the country, or foreign terrorist attacks (which are more and more on the rise, suggesting that the threat of Islam is increasing).

It's a shame this book does not have more publicity, as it offers a good explanation for Christianity as well as the rise of Islam.

Format: Paperback
This is a good introduction to Islam (if you don't know anything about it), contrasting it with the central concepts of Christianity.
I agree with the first reviewer, afpalmer2, that it is a book for Christians. I thought this was fairly clear from the synopsis, so I don't know what he was expecting. He is right that some of the comments are politically incorrect, but Pawson is trying to stay true to the Bible and his own faith, neither of which are PC! As a person who studies the Bible quite a bit, I can't say I found any of his arguments weak. Dugroberts' review is far more accurate. This book is a 'wake-up call to Christians'.
A clear, well-written book, in harmony with the Bible, looking at the serious threat Islam poses to Western Christians: where it differs from Christianity, and in reply, what Christians need to focus on.

A timely call for Christians to wake up to what is happening around us. We christians can fall for a 'wait and see' ethos. That attitude could have a drastic repercussions. Thank You Mr Pawson
