From the Back Cover
“Islam’s race to win the world was detoured for about four hundred years, but now it is back on track to achieve our goal—the setting up of a worldwide [community of Islam.]”
—Muslim leader in Europe
The unfolding conflict between Islam and the West is not just a clash of cultures—it is a head-to-head confrontation between a religion intent on world dominance and a culture confused and unsettled by rising hatred and violence.
In this revealing book, a veteran Christian missionary to the Muslim world examines the rapid worldwide growth of Islam and credits it to a well-financed missions strategy. This “loose strategy” is advanced through three tactical methods: jihad (holy war), Da’wah (missions), and mosques (presence).
William Wagner’s analysis includes an overview of Islamic philosophy and methodology, writings from the secular press, and quotations from Islamic writers. His conclusions about Islam’s growth, which is neither spontaneous nor accidental, should spur Christians on to become much more active in living out their faith and proclaiming the truth found in Jesus Christ.
William Wagner (Th.D., University of South Africa; D.Miss., Fuller Theological Seminary) is professor of missions at the Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary and vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention. For more than thirty years he served as a missionary with SBC’s International Mission Board. During that time, he was chairman of the Muslim Awareness Committee of the European Baptist Federation. In addition to teaching, he travels and speaks extensively in the Middle East and Europe, training missionaries for ministry to Muslims.

His book is a perfect example of one of the Muslims main criticisms of Western Christian leaders, that we twist things to our advantage and whenever there was any doubt present the people of Muhammad in the worst light possible.
I would not recommend this book to people who do not already have a solid grasp of Islam and its peoples, or one will come away with a distorted view.
The text is well written and very educational. I found it revealing and shocking. I was amazed by Mr. Wagner's written play-by-play of world events that were actually happening as I turned each page. Everyone needs to understand the depths of the Muslim religion and the details of this relegion's "megastrategy".
It is most troubling that we in the West, particularly Americans, are so naive.
