Islam at the Crossroads is informative, insightful, and balanced. It's size and style make it accessible to the concerned layperson. It offers exactly what Christians in America (and around the world) need to understand as an introduction to Islam. Marshall, Gilbert and Green have written a splendid treatment of one of the most critical topics facing the Church today.

Format: Paperback
I picked the book up from curiosity; I am a Muslim. Did an 'open to' test and opened to the sixth page of the first chapter. Saw that in listing what Muslims believe he wrote that we must believe in "Allah's Angels (Jinn)". Yes, we must believe in Angels, and we do believe in Jinn, but these are completely different creations. Jinn live amongst us and like us have the gift/burden of free will. Angels only serve Allah and don't have will. If such a profound misunderstanding (and poor editing I must add) is in such a crucial and basic section early in the book, where can this book go when it delves into things less clear? The trash.

What do you know about Islam? Not as much as you'd like? This compelling, accessible, and objective overview traces its vibrant history and core beliefs---including jihad (holy war). You'll learn about Islam's conflicts with Judaism and Christianity, the differences between militant factions and the peaceful majority of Muslims, and the forces shaping its future. 112 pages, softcover from Baker.

How was Islam formed and founded? What forces are shaping the future of Islam? How and why did an international network of violent groups emerge? What are some common beliefs between militant Islam and the peaceful majority? Which form of Islam will prevail? Islam at the Crossroads will help you find answers to these questions and more as it explores the history of Islam, its basic beliefs and practices, and its polarizing divisions. Discover how the vibrant history of Islam has been inspired by core beliefs such as jihad, or holy war. Consider the worldview of a religion that does not separate church and state, sacred and secular. Examine the similarities and differences among Muslim groups and between Islamic and Judeo-Christian teachings. And gain insight into today's events through a panoramic view of invasions and campaigns, from those of the Prophet Muhammad to present-day acts of terrorism. Accesible and engaging, Islam at the Crossroads is an exceptional primer for understanding Islam. It not only presents Islam's basic foundations and historical facts, it also reveals the varied world of Islam today, calling for support from from the millions of moderate Muslims who wish to simply live their lives in peace.
