Durie in The Third Choice
has produced a remarkably lucid, compact, well annotated, comprehensive and enduring book. --Jerry Gordon, New English Review (edited by author)
I salute the courage of Mark Durie and the scholarship exhibited in The Third Choice, which offers solutions to difficult problems hindering the peaceful co-existence of two major world religions. --Archbishop Peter Akinola (added by author)
In The Third Choice
Mark Durie examines the most crucial challenges of this new century. In clear language, free from political correctness, and backed by an impressive scholarly knowledge, he unfolds step-by-step the basic foundations of Islam and exposes their inner correlations with jihad and dhimmitude, two theological and legal Islamic institutions that shape traditional Muslim behaviour toward non-Muslims. --Bat Ye'or (added by author)
This extraordinary book stands as a vital wake-up call for an increasingly drowsy Free World. --Robert Spencer (added by author)
To say something worth reading about the relationship of Islam to other faiths an author needs a huge and broad amount of knowledge in different fields of expertise, needs to know how to integrate research findings from religion, sociology and humanities, and needs to be brave, politically incorrect and peace-minded all at the same time. Few people can offer all of this, but, as all of this is true for Mark Durie, I can recommend The Third Choice
to everyone interested in the future of world politics. --Professor Thomas Schirrmacher (added by author)
From the Author
I wrote this book to help people understand Islam, and what it means to live under Islamic dominance if you are not a Muslim. The Third Choice
is written in a way which is accessible to people of all faiths or none. It contains a lot of original material, which readers will not find elsewhere.
For readers who are looking for an overtly Christian response to the material in The Third Choice
, I can recommend Liberty to the Captives
, which offers spiritual keys to finding freedom from Islam.
My earlier book Revelation
considers the question of whether Muslims and Christians worship the same God.
