I wouldn't recommend that readers stop with just this book. There are many other readable books on the market that will round out the subject for newbies and make them into tolerably good defenders of Western philosophy, which is under attack by the Muslim hordes (and on American university campuses).
This is the sort of book that the youth of America should be reading (and which they are highly unlikely to be directed to at American universities). Many non-Muslims are prone to want to lump Islam with Christianity as one of the major religions to worship the one true God. However Islam is better described not as a religion but instead as a style of life taken up by 7th century denizens of the harsh Arabian Desert. Allah's messenger Muhammad despised Jews after they would not become his (Muhammad's) followers. That very same attitude prevails even into this present day in the minds of committed Muslims (who are legion in the world). Christians fared little better in the time of Muhammad. Westerners will be much the better and wiser for learning from Townsend and others of like mind, that Islam bears no meaningful relationship with Christianity.
Those Christians who want to believe that fellowship between them and Muslims is a reachable goal will, one hopes, be disabused of such naivety upon reading Townsend's <Nothing to do with Islam>.
This book, is in line with other authors investigating Islam and the many violent deeds done in its name, like Dr. Bill Warner, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Walid Shoebat, and more. In short, the truth is being revealed and none too soon.
Just three or so years ago it was easy for proponents of Islam to put on a nicey nicey program by essentially misleading the audience with quotes from the Mecca portion of the Quran, saying the word Islam comes from the same stem word as peace, etc. BS to schmooze the innocent. No longer.
Keep up the good work!!
