Don't misunderstand; this is a good book, a very good one. But it is not what I consider `a stand alone book'. That is, I am honestly glad to have read it, but with so much in note form and containing so many summaries of the work and insights of others, I can only think of it as supplementing other good books on this topic. Chapman's Cross and Crescent is helpful: it is accessible; it is evangelical in its commitments; it challenges western stereotypes, outlines the basic tenets of Islamic belief, sheds light on the practice and cultural-religious outlook of Muslims globally, and it considers different ways of sharing Christian faith with Muslims. However, it just too often feels like one is reading from a syllabus or course notes; the content is valuable, not to mention well laid-out, but brevity of treatment leaves you wanting more and having to look elsewhere for it. (Perhaps the author will oblige us by following up this volume with more in-depth treatments? I'd certainly endorse that).
