"This extraordinary book pierces through the politically correct miasma of unreality that envelops us and explains clearly and persuasively, with mountains of evidence, the threat that Islam poses today to the Church and to Western civilization. William Kilpatrick is to be commended for penning a concise and comprehensive introduction to the reality and magnitude of the Islamic supremacist threat. This book should be essential reading for politicians, bishops, and everyone who is on the front lines of the culture wars." --Robert Spencer, author of the NY Times bestseller The Truth About Muhammad
"Kilpatrick's insights into Western relativism, multiculturalism, and the resultant anti-Christian attitudes form a matrix by which the rot of a crumbling society can be better understood . . . This book summons Christians to awaken their love for the true Jesus Christ of the Gospel, to learn sober truth about Christianity and Islam, and live their faith courageously in the face of Muslim aggression." --Mitch Pacwa, SJ, Author, St. Paul and the Power of the Cross
"Most politicians, journalists, and intellectuals either fall silent on the subject of Islamic theology or sanitize it through platitudes, all of which revolve around religious and cultural relativism. As William Kilpatrick convincingly shows in Christianity, Islam, and Atheism, this fashionable complacency has compromised Western civilization. In this indispensable book, he wakes the politically correct up from their dogmatic slumbers, sounding a vitally important alarm about the true aims of Islam." --George Neumayr, contributing editor to The American Spectator and co-author of No Higher Power: Obama's War on Religious Freedom

Europe has largely abandoned its Christian roots, so is even nearer to complete capitulation than the United States. Globalism, multiculturalism, and atheism don’t stand a chance against Islamism. Therefore urges the author, Christians must wake up now to the looming threat, and once again use God’s truth to conquer the fables of Mohammed. Baring this awakening, Islamic conquest is on the path to arrive so rapidly that few will realize what has happened to them until too late, just as Nazism did last century.
Quickly stated, the author's central thesis is that Islam is at its heart a religion of violence and subjugation, and that it threatens to fill the spiritual vacuum created by the lapse of Christian faith in western society. Mr. Kilpatrick challenges the reader to actually READ the Koran, which is filled with the call to jihad, and to not be fooled by Muslim apologists who claim that jihad refers only to an interior spiritual struggle. He tellingly compares the lives of the founders of Christianity and Islam. While Jesus was a man of peace and virtue whose most violent act was to turn over the tables of the moneylenders in the temple, Muhammad was a military commander who led his followers in 27 battles and was unspeakably cruel to his conquered foes. He challenges the claim that the Koran was in fact a revelation from God, and suggests instead that it was composed by the "prophet" as an act of self-aggrandizement. He points out the immoral lifestyle of Muhammad, who married Aisha when she was only 9, and who wrote part of the Koran to justify his taking more than the customary 4 wives allowed to other Arabs. But Muhammad is the "perfect" role model for all Muslims: his cruelty and immorality are not to be questioned, at the risk of imprisonment, torture and even death. And so-called "moderate" Muslims are moderate only to the extent that they distance themselves from the actual teachings of the Koran and other Islamic "holy" books.
The goal of jihad is to conquer the world (Muslim armies conquered much of Spain and reached Vienna in previous centuries, and the modern jihadist is no less ambitious in his goal). The author suggests that the only way to prevent the ultimate triumph of Islam is for Christians to regain the fervor they once had for their faith. The appeasers of Islam remind this reviewer of the apologists for Hitler prior to World War Two. That kind of willfully blind naivete may once again have deadly consequences. Whether by terrorism, open armed conflict, or political and legal subversion of western cultures and governments, Islam will not be denied unless countered by the staunch Christian values of true democracy and respect for every individual human life. The battle may already be two-thirds lost.
