This book charts the rise of Islam, described as once being an obscure religion, which has grown rapidly into the second largest religion in the entire world.
The author documents the attractions held by Islam for it's followers and how it shapes their political and religious attitudes especially to those outside of their faith.
The author, a Christian, also makes a number of comparisons between Christianity and Islam, comparing the Bible and the Koran, Jesus and Mohammed, the Jewish/Christian God and Allah, to mention just a few.
The history and customs of Islam are examined as are issues relating to religious freedom and the role of women.
This book contains essential information for this day and age and is highly recommended.
The following quotes from the paperback version of the book on page 39 are quite chilling and are cited in the context of Islam allegedly being a 'peaceful' religion;-
"Fight and slay the pagans (ie. infidels) wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every strategem of war." (Sura 9;5).
For those who resist Islam;-
"Their punishment is ...execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from the opposite sides, or exile from the land." (Sura 5;33).
With Mosques described as now outnumbering and even replacing Churches on a scale not seen before, the book sounds alarm bells which we all need to hear.
This book is a literal gold-mine of information about Islam and it's alleged 'agenda'. If you can get a copy, then please get one.
Clearly supporters of Islam will not welcome this book but it really should be read. Thank you.
