Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

American Muslim ’Isa, black feminist Libby (short for Liberty), and Evangelical Evan have conversed before in Catholic philosopher Kreeft’s work (A Refutation of Moral Relativism, 1999; If Einstein Had Been a Surfer, 2009), but then they were his former students, exploring a single large theme. In these interfaith dialogues on many subjects, they’re his Boston College undergrads again, and two priest-professors, one traditional, one liberal, occasionally counsel them. The bones over which they contend include Islam versus the West, Jesus and Muhammad, surrender (the definition of islam), liberals and conservatives, feminism, sexual morality and moral ambiguity, war and pacifism, abortion and compassion, and eight others. They argue knowledgeably, articulately, and respectfully, though ’Isa’s congenital inability to soften his words quite mortifies Libby. In the introduction, Kreeft states his admiration for something about ’Isa that he believes Christians should emulate. He can’t define it, he says, but readers who also feel it may conclude it is a compelling, utterly natural combination of compassionate openness and moral groundedness that they, too, admire. --Ray Olson

Review

"Peter Kreeft has written an important, original and groundbreaking book. At a time when there is fierce prejudice against Muslims and Islam, not surprising in the wake of 9/11, Kreeft has the knowledge to treat Islam both sympathetically and critically. With exemplary courage, Kreeft spells out what Christians in the West can learn from the Muslims. Indispensable reading!" (Dinesh D'Souza, author of What's So Great About Christianity )

"This is a rare and sincere attempt to delve into the Islamic mind and heart, with respect and understanding. With its depth and pertinence to our post-9/11 world, I can say that this work surpasses many previous attempts by famous Orientalists to compare Christianity and Islam. Christians and evangelists can learn a lot from the fictional debates and dialogue that enrich this work. This personalized discourse could be used to teach missionaries authentic ways for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with Muslims." (Hicham Chehab, evangelist and former Muslim activist )

"With inimitable subtlety, Peter Kreeft's literary meditation has produced a series of fictional dialogues that bring out how good Muslims and good Christians, despite the grave and irreconcilable differences marking their respective creeds, are really natural allies in the culture war against a common enemy: sin. These insights by the author, born out of a diligent love in investigating the beliefs and life practices of truly devout Muslims, map with courageous honesty minus the usual platitudes the shared moral and spiritual territory between such Muslims and equally devout Christians. Kreeft captures that primordial purity and elemental spirituality of the Muslim believer living in total surrender to God's will. Not only can Christians learn much from Muslims about the importance of submission, tradition, family, divine commandments, spiritual tenacity and rejection of the ills of modernity, Kreeft also uses precisely these strengths in Islam to level a scathing critique at the moral and spiritual laxity of the secular West. All in all, a fascinating read and a tour de force in the indirect communication through creative literature of abiding, universal verities." (Habit C. Malik, associate professor of history, Lebanese American University (Byblos campus) )

"Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn more about the morals and values of Muslims. Through the moral, intelligent and open- minded Muslim young man 'Isa, you will learn not only about Islam, but you'll come to a greater understanding and security in your own Christian faith." (Dr. Nabeel T. Jabbour, professor and author of The Crescent Through the Eyes of the Cross )
