Mark Durie's presentation is as lucid as it is compelling. His work enables the reader to actually understand the precise psychological character of the moral capitulation that we now see overtaking so many minds. Peter Day. --Annals Australasia
The title of this riveting and important book comes from the principle that non-Muslims have three choices in a Sharia-dominated world: embrace Islam, be killed or enslaved, or live as subservient dhimmis. Mervyn F. Bendle. --News Weekly
This book is a great read. Roland Croucher. --The Baptist Witness
Durie in The Third Choice has produced a remarkable lucid compact, well annotated, comprehensive and enduring book. Jerry Gordon. --New English Review
From the Author
I wrote this book to help people understand Islam, and what it means to live under Islamic dominance if you are not a Muslim. The Third Choice is written in a way which is accessible to people of all faiths or none. It contains a lot of original material, which readers will not find elsewhere.
For readers who are looking for an overtly Christian response to the material in The Third Choice, I can recommend Liberty to the Captives, which offers spiritual keys to finding freedom from Islam.
My book Which God? considers the question of whether Muslims and Christians worship the same God.

The Third Choice should be a top contender for best single introduction to Islam and also to the Islamic textual and historical basis of "dhimmitude." Dhimmitude means turning non-Muslims into second class citizens subject to various kinds of legal and social discrimination. The institution is reminiscent of Jim Crow era segregation or South African apartheid, but dhimmitude is based on religious rather than racial discrimination, and is often considered by Muslims eternal and unchangeable till the end of time, because sourced in the eternal word of Allah in the Qur'an, and in the example of Muhammad in the canonical Islamic traditions about Muhammad's life.
The Third Choice employs Durie's conscientious and insightful style to make a powerful case that Islam and creeping dhimmitude pose growing dangers to civil liberties and open societies. He makes the case through a consideration of core Islamic texts, Islamic history, modern media reports, and his own experience living in Indonesia. Durie evinces a profound knowledge of the core Islamic texts and what those texts direct Muslims to do about unbelievers. Despite the book's relative brevity, it's almost miraculously comprehensive and thorough, pulls no punches, and reveals the darkest underbelly of Islam with unmatched effectiveness and yet with genuine compassion. A work of genius.
In multicultural Australia we are encouraged to welcome and accept all people and their religion. We are not perfect and have made some regrettable decisions. After reading The Third Choice I feel I can no longer hold a balanced view about Islam and its place in modern Australia. Obviously I must read more, so Mark Drury has set me on a path of personal discovery that I hope will lead me to better informed opinions and comments.
