I don't really see the point of this book. If you want to share the Gospel with your Muslim friends, I don't think that this book will help you much if at all. The book presents the major topics related to Islam, including Allah, Muhammad, the Quran, sin, salvation and afterlife, and tries to prove them wrong with the Bible. Rhodes is clearly preaching to the choir with this book, and I believe that this way of evangelizing Muslims is absolutely non-effective, as Muslims do not believe in the Bible. The most likely reaction from a Muslim will simply be getting offended, and this will make your effort of leading him/her to Christ ineffective. The Word of God is incredibly powerful and speaks to the heart, but I think that an all-out Bible-bash won't do any good; on the other hand, telling people about your wonderful, personal relationship with Jesus and showing Christ-like love is the best way to go. However, like in every other book by Dr. Rhodes, there are some interesting features, like a few thought provoking questions and simple explanations to Muslim beliefs, but overall I am not very impressed . REMEMBER, THESE KIND OF BOOKS MIGHT BE HELPFUL TO GATHER INFORMATION, BUT WHEN IT COME TO WITNESSING, THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL BE YOUR GUIDE. JESUS WILL GIVE YOU WORDS AND WISDOM IF YOU ASK HIM.
although i find it hard to get on board with Ron Rhodes' writing style, as he presents his arguments with a rather nasty and arrogant tone, if you can remove yourself from the authors bias, and analyse the arguments he presents in an objective and impartial manner, then this book is priceless. Furthermore, due to the authors subjectivism, it is only appealing to a fairly limited group. This is because, this book is aimed at Christians with a heart for muslims, a muslim exploring the truth about his faith, would probably find this book, patronising and unhelpful, but thats not the authors fault as he has deliberately intended this book to be for the Christian who wishes to widen his/her knowledge of Islam. However, despite my criticisms and perturbed uncomforts, i feel that this is one of about 10 books out there that is necessary reading for any Christian wishing to pursue Islam and go down deep on the issues of the religion.
