I listened to Mark Gabriel speak shortly after 9/11 and bought this book and read it. Its a compelling and truthful discussion about the "truth" of the doctrines of Islam as set forth by the Koran and Hadith. The most surprising truth was the reality that the so called "radical Muslims" (terrorists 9/11 etc.) are actually adhering to the true doctrine of the Koran and the so called "moderate Muslims" who advocate "living in peace" with Christians and Jews or anyone who is not an adherent to Islam are distorting the true doctrine as taught by mohammed and as set forth in the Koran and Hadith. I thought the "politically correct line" before reading the truth in this book. If anyone reading this, especially an adherent of Islam, and they disagree with what I wrote. I invite you to ask your self these simple questions: 1) Is it good and proper for Islam to be taught and spread amongst non-believing Americans in an effort to convert them to Islam? Lets assume the answer would be "yes" which is fine. Then ask yourself: Is it good and proper for Christian missionaries to travel to Mecca and Medina and openly seek to convert believing Muslims to abandon the Muslim religion and convert to Christianity. You know the answer is "no that would be an abomination" in the mind of a "true Muslim." So with this clear and real contradiction ask yourself . . . why is that? The answer. True Muslims and entirely intolerant of anything other than the gradual spread of Islam.

Having studied Islam over the years and read the Quran in various translations, I had never learned the most revealing point Gabriel makes, which helps explain the bewildering, conflicting interpretations of the Quran by Muslims and other scholars. Does the Quran teach primarily peace and tolerance, or hatred and violence against all non-Muslims? Gabriel, who grew up a Muslim [although a Muslim no longer], was taught to hate all Christians, memorized the Quran as a child, and took his PH. D. at the leading university in Cairo. He says that the explanation for these contradictory interpretations is as follows: The Quran is composed of two very different sets of surahs [chapters]--those earlier surahs dating from the Meccan period when Muhammad was focused on prayer and meditation, and later surahs after Muhammad had gone to Medina, become a military leader and returned to Mecca to conquer those who had rejected his message. The Meccan texts support Jihad as inner, spiritual struggle of individuals; Medina texts support Jihad as violent political action against nonbelievers. The Quran itself is not printed in chronological order of surah reception and recording, so one would not know this distinction without consulting scholarly commentaries.

This is by far the best book I've ever read on Islam and its past, current, and expected impact especially on the Western civilization. The author, Mark Gabriel, stands out as the foremost authority I've ever read or heard. He's has been tested through trials that clearly only God could have led and kept him safe through. Every single true Christian should read this book if they read no others on Islam. But I'd also recommend "The Islamic Antichrist" and "Agent Storm" (the latter being a remarkable story of how a young Dane converted to Islam, became an Al Quida member, and finally came to the light realizing he was on the wrong path and became an agent for the CIA, British MI5, and the Danish secret service).

The book is somewhat vague at the beginning, covering many topic lightly. At the end is when the real knowledge comes. If you read other books before about this subject, you will find in the last third of the book very insightful comments about Islam embracing modernism. As it stands today that will not be possible because of the conflict of putting man's law above god.

I read this book very quickly. In my opinion, it is better than that by Nabeel Qureshi, who says: yes, Islam requires death to the non believers, in the Koran (actually, throughout the Koran)…but most Muslims do not read the Koran…etc.

This author gives a fairly good explanation of Islam and its growth, but ends by urging us to be kind to Muslims, and not engage in “Islamophobia” because most Muslims are nice…

He does urge a new interpretation of the original sources. (The Koran) He does point out that a lot of the violence is preached in the Hadith, Sharia law, and the Sunnah, which are human opinions by “experts.”

He argues that these can be changed. He says the violent verses were created by Muhammed because he had a different perspective. He was “targeted by aggressive enemies who tried to destroy him” (last chapter) and fought back to protect himself and the Islamic Community.

That simply and clearly is not true. When Mohammed was unable to gain power in Mecca, preaching loving verses, he went to Medina and began raising money (and followers) by killing all the people in merchant caravans, stealing the goods, and selling them.

NO one threatened him. He killed to gain money and power, and he succeeded.

Thus, the argument that “Today the situation is completely different than in Muhammad’s time” made at the end of this book, is just plain false. There was never, ever a threat to Muhammed which impelled him to become the murderous villain that he was.

He did it for power.

I agree that the change to the Koran must happen.
