Is it very rare that one comes across a book that is extremely open and honest, and in these ways critical of a faith, that is authored by someone who was held is such high regard by its followers, someone deep behind the lines, rather than potentially biased Westerners. Indeed, Mark A. Gabriel (a pseudonym the author has adopted from his original Muslim name to protect himself after being kidnapped and tortured by the Egyptian secret police for questioning his faith), is a former Egyptian Muslim and Islamic scholar whom now lives in exile in the United States of America. It is interesting to note the reasons why he changed his name. He informs the reader of this in great details at the outset of the book's introduction because he has "no desire to deceive Muslims, Christians or anyone else about" his name "in order to benefit" himself.
Dr. Gabriel, Ph.D. was a professor, one of the youngest hired at the prominent Al-Azhar University based in Cairo, Egypt. He began lecturing after he finished his master's degree and working to finish his doctorate in Islamic culture and history. Al-Azhar has operated continuously for more than one thousand years and is seen as the most respected and authoritative Islamic academy throughout the entire world.
Written in the aftermath of September 11th 2001, this book gives a unique insight into a religion that was, up until then to many westerns at least, a religion deeply enshrouded in mystery. What makes this book so impressive and important is the fact that it is written by a former Muslim and discusses frankly the central issue and greatest threat that is effecting us today - Islam. Not only that, but a highly praised and well respected Muslim. Also, it is written in such a way that is easy to follow.

I decided to read this book after reading a copy of The Qu'ran, as there were many things I was unsure about still from reading the book. I acknowledged many of the violent quotes which seem to have given the Qu'ran a bad reputation, and it was conceivable that many Jihadists in history could have got their ideology from this book, yet there were still many peaceful quotes which contradicted the violent ones, and until reading this book, I was very much stumped by this.

Thankfully, Dr Gabriel explained about the process of "anaskh", how the violent quotes overturn the peaceful quotes, as if the peaceful ones never happened, due to the historical context in which they were said. Therefore it shows that true fundamentalist Islam does not promote peace, and these peaceful quotes are not meant to be followed (despite many Muslims picking and choosing from the Qu'ran, and living by the peaceful quotes alone).

I also received a good explanation of the history of the Jihadi movements in the past, such as El-Kharij, the Wahhabi movement, Al-Jihad and many more. This showed me how they were all similar in their ideology, and that the modern day Jihadists such as ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Qaeda etc. are strikingly similar to that of the original Muslim Empire, led by the Prophet Muhammad himself!

Very eye-opening and informative book. Gabriel has a good writing style and has a thorough, in-depth knowledge of Islam that very few people on this Earth would have. Highly recommended.

Presented by a Professor of Islamic History at Al-Azhar University, Cairo, this book provides the reader with an extremely valuable insight into what the Islamic holy book, the Quran, teaches about Christianity, violence & the goals of the Islamic jihad. We are also imparted with an in depth analysis into the Islamic faith, beliefs and traditions through a book which documents the identification between modern terrorism and Islamic theology.
Written in the wake of the September 11th attacks, the book outlines how as a "Christian" society, we in the West have an extremely limited comprehension of what Muslims actually believe and what, if any, agenda the religion of Islam has.
At the outset, the contents of the book go to great lengths to point out that "Islam is behind terrorism" and not "Muslims". Readers being encouraged to love individual Muslims but to be aware of what Islam teaches, pointing out that many Muslims themselves are not aware of all that the Islamic faith includes.
Muslims being described here as falling into any one of three groups; secular, traditional and fundamental Muslims. Secular Muslims only believing in what they term the "nice" parts of Islam and who reject jihad. Traditional Muslims who have a stumbling block with the concept of Jihad and the latter group of fundamentalists who actually perpetrate the terrorism. More detail of this is included as the book progresses.
The book begins with an autobiography detailing the writer's experience and knowledge of Islam and how he came to question his Islamic faith. This is followed by an account of his expulsion from University, his arrest and detention by the Egyptian secret police and his treatment/interrogation.
