. . . A useful framework to help Christians to witness to Muslims, particularly in the Western countries. (Christian Library Journal 2004-06-03)
The single greatest strength of this book is that it is not published as an exercise in academic research but rather as a tool for Christians to equip themselves. (Between the Leaves 2004-06-03)
This is fascinating. Two former Muslims talk about Islam from the inside. It's a fairly simple but complete read, among other things I think I now get why we supported Iraq as opposed to Iran. I'm not really sure how to describe it, but I think in this day and age, we all need to read it. (journals.aol.com 2007-03-12)
"This informative, well-written book should be read by every Christian who desires to understand Islam and to see Muslims come to Jesus Christ for salvation" (Roy B. Zuck Bibliotheca Sacra 2005-04-01)
From the Back Cover
Islam is often obscured by a veil of unfamiliar beliefs, customs, and practices. We watch intriguing images of Islamic nations on our televisions. We hear words like Muslim and Jihad defined in conflicting terms.
What is Islam, truly, when you peek behind the veil? Who can explain this culture with clarity and precision?
Raised as Sunni Muslims by a leader in the Muslim faith, brothers Ergun and Emir Caner have lived the Muslim life. Now Christians and highly respected theology professors, the Caner brothers are in a unique position to present an unprecedented insider’s look at Islam.
Unveiling Islam is a sympathetic yet uncompromising presentation of the entire scope of Islam—its practices, ethics, and beliefs, including the primary differences between Christianity and Islam. With a basic knowledge of Islam in place, the authors then present a practical strategy Christians can use to open a productive dialogue with Muslims.
Ergun Mehmet Caner (Th.M., Southeastern Seminary; Th.D., University of South Africa) is currently Professor of Theology and Church History at The Criswell College in Dallas, Texas. During his seventeen years as a pastor and now as a professor, Dr. Caner has lectured on apologetics, world religions, and theology in eleven countries and has been interviewed on CNN, the 700 Club, and the BBC, among many others.
Emir Fethi Caner (Ph.D., University of Texas) is currently Assistant Professor of Church History and Anabaptist Studies at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. He speaks regularly on church history and Islam around the world and on such programs as Janet Parshall’s America and Billy Graham’s Decision Today Radio. His past experience includes pastoring, missions work, and church planting.
