About the Author

After earning a Ph.D. in Islamic history, Mark A. Gabriel became convinced that Muhammad did not speak for God. His search for truth led to the love of Jesus Christ, as well as complete rejection from his family and two attempts against his life by political fundamentalists. Now pursuing a Ph.D. in world religion at a Christian university, he speaks and writes about the true nature of Islam with the non-emotional accuracy of an academician. As a reflection of his new life in Christ, he has chosen a Christian name to replace his Islamic name.

Please read this book.
I originally bought this book looking for answers about Islamic terrorism and also the obvious hatred of these terrorists for Jews and Christians.
J. D. Smith
This book is very easy to follow and Mark's personal stories make it an interesting read.

Format: Paperback
Well, if it's up to me I'd give that book a rating of 5 stars myself, I read it all through in one single day!!!

Yes, it was that Interesting & Exciting, it sure will be to any fair open minded person too!!!

Yet the rating of only 4 stars which I gave it, is not due to mistakes or problems the author had made, No...

It's simply that out of my own opinion I had the feeling that...

1st - some of the examples (The wine for example and the contradiction discussed) was a bit weak regarding the verses selected, yet I don't say it's wrong, for if we considered the 3 Rivers of Heaven promised in the Quraan we'll find the same problem again!!!

2nd - Reading throughout the book especially as a Muslim makes you start thinking in a defensive way (what in the world is he talking about, even we call these people Terrorists!!!) He is talking about Terrorists & Extremists, and somehow Muslims will automatically start defending by saying stuff like (Them understanding the Quraan that way is their own problem, yet it doesn't mean it is really that way) and that's only because of the way this book is written when getting deeper into the Terrorism sections of the book, Referring to these terrorists as acting according to THEIR BELIEFS (where these last 2 words are keywords that can turn the whole point of the book over, even if the Author had made clear at the Begining that these are the Quraan's teachings, still using these 2 words makes it sound a bit different again) Yet I'm sorry to say, It is very Serious because it's not THEIR BELIEFS, The Auther is right, it's the Quraan's teachings, at least it's written there, so what else could it be doing there!!!

And who am i?!!

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
I have read this book, I have heard Dr. Gabriel speak, and all I can say to the pin-heads who bash Dr. Gabriel, call him "biased" and say he doesn't know anything about Islam, is that they have no clue. Dr. Gabriel is EGYPTIAN, could quote the Koran fully by age 12, he is a former PROFESSOR OF ISLAMIC HISTORY at Al-Azhar university in Egypt, and a former Imam. So, I think when he speaks about Islam he KNOWS what he is talking about, certainly more than the pin-head liberals and Christian bashing reviewers. But then again, I would expect nothing but biased, uninformed bashing from them. If you want an inside look at Islam, do something unique: read his books, read his testimony, and judge for yourself.

To the person who took Dr. Gabriel's book to a "linguist" who is a "christian" for an amazing 85 years???? Your "linguist" is ill, so old he is out of it, or you are... misleading people about this book. I am looking at Dr. Gabriels book this very second, looking at page 4-5 and have looked up the Surahs he quotes and guess what? They are EXACTLY as he states. Here is one example:

On page 4, Dr. Gabriel says "In one place alcohol was forbidden; in another it was allowed. (Compare surah 5:90-91 with Surah 47:15.)"

Guess what those two surah are talking about? Have a clue? Here, to help you out, I will quote them:

"O ye who believe! Intoxicants (wine) and gambling, stones, and arrows, are an abomination of Satan's handiwork: eschew such, that ye may prosper. [Surah 5: 90]

Satan's plan is (but) to excite enmity and hatred between you, with intoxicants (alcohol/wine) and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah, and from prayer: will ye not then abstain?
