Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world today. Thus, over the next generation the church will face an increasingly urgent need to understand Islam and to learn how to confront Muslims with the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In a clear and straightforward analysis, Dr. Patrick Sookhdeo - himself a former Muslim,who converted to Jesus Christ as a young adult - offers the church a much-needed guide for understanding and responding to Islam. With both theological and political insight, Sookhdeo explains how Islam differs from Christianity, describes its place in today's world, and offers practical advice for how Christians can befriend and speak to Muslims about the Gospel. With Islam becoming more and more an object of our attention and concern, Christians need to think carefully about the challenge it poses to our Christian faith. Dr. Sookhdeo helps us to do just that. --R. Albert Mohler, Jr. - President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
Despite increasing discussion and debate about the threat Islam poses to the West, many Christians in America have a rudimentary grasp of what Muslims believe and how their convictions differ from 'the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints.' Having spent time with Dr. Sookhdeo over the past several years, I ve been extremely impressed by his vast knowledge of Islamic doctrine and history, his heart for the Gospel, and his care for the persecuted Church. Dr. Sookhdeo's strengths in these areas stand out throughout this book - Christians would be hard-pressed to find a better biblically informed resource on Islam. --James D. Daly - President and CEO, Focus on the Family.
