Learn What Islam Really Teaches, Straight From Its Sacred Text
Relying on the media and politicians to tell us what Muslims believe isn't going to cut it. Christians need to be better informed, whether the goal is to understand global politics or to talk to a Muslim neighbor across the street.
Through fair and accurate use of the Qur'an and other documents, scholar and accomplished debater Dr. James White examines what Muslim sacred texts teach about Christ, salvation, the Trinity, the afterlife, and other crucial topics. This book provides the answers you've been looking for to engage in open, honest discussions about Islam with Muslims and others.
"An excellent introduction for Christians who want to be more informed about Islam than what they can learn from news reports and the Internet. Dealing not only with historical facts but also deep theological and prophetic questions, the book is valuable for all Christians who want to communicate intelligently with their Muslim friends and neighbors." --The Baptist Standard

One of the very interesting points that this book raised in the Islamic development of understanding the difference between Tahreef Al Maana (changing the meaning) and Tahreef Al-Nass (Changing the text). Many of the Christians in America, and many Islamic scholars as well, don't understand the importance of this point in the Christian-Muslim dialogue, and many books overlooked it. Dr. White, on the opposite, was able to simplify this concept, and help Christians to utilizes it to communicate the Gospel of Christ to Muslims.
As an Arab Christian who is specialized in Islam, I can say that I recommend this book for both Christians and Muslims alike. For Muslims, because it shines the light on some concepts and doctrines that Muslims often tend to overlook. And for Christians because it equips them to understand Islam and the Qur'an in a deeper level than many other books presents.
Dr. White, once again, gave us a book that is worth reading.
I do appreciate how much work he did preparing for the book. I myself would prefer not to invest so much time to study the Qur'an and Hadith directly in order to learn its message and better understand where Muslims are coming from. I'd rather to read books like this.
Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus was much easier for me to read and it contained a lot of great information (major doctrinal differences between Christianity and Islam), besides being a thrilling account of God patiently demonstrating His love for the author.
There is a general and popular misconception that the Christian Bible and the Muslim Qur'an are essentially the same book with a different cover. This could not be further from the truth, and to be intellectually honest, one must study the differences to make such a claim. "What Every Christian Needs to Know about the Qur'an" is not only for Christians, but for anyone wanting to know about what the Qur'an says and how it was written.
