A useful framework to help Christians to witness to Muslims, particularly in the Western countries. --Christian Library Journal 06-03-2004
This is fascinating. Two former Muslims talk about Islam from the inside. It's a fairly simple but complete read, among other things I think I now get why we supported Iraq as opposed to Iran. I'm not really sure how to describe it, but I think in this day and age, we all need to read it. --Journals AOL dot com 03-12-2007
This informative, well-written book should be read by every Christian who desires to understand Islam and to see Muslims come to Jesus Christ for salvation. --Roy B. Zuck, Bibliotheca Sacra 04-01-2005
From the Back Cover
An updated and expanded edition of the bestselling and award-winning book Islam is often obscured by a veil of unfamiliar beliefs, customs, and practices. We watch intriguing images of Islamic nations on our televisions. We hear words like Muslim and Jihad defined in conflicting terms. But we still don't understand. Now, more than ever, we need to join the thousands of Christians who have become friends and compatriots in reaching Muslim people for Christ. So who can explain this culture with clarity and precision? Raised as Sunni Muslims by a leader in the faith, brothers Ergun and Emir Caner have lived the Muslim life. Now Christians, and highly respected theology professors, the Caner brothers are particularly qualified to present an unprecedented insider's look at Islam. Newly updated and expanded from its original edition, Unveiling Islam is a sympathetic yet uncompromising presentation of the entire scope of Islam-its practices, ethics, and beliefs, including the primary differences between Christianity and Islam. The authors then present a practical strategy Christians can use to open a productive dialogue with Muslims. Ergun Mehmet Caner (Th.M., Southeastern Seminary; Th.D., University of South Africa) is dean of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, and professor of theology and church history at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. During his seventeen years as a pastor and now as an educator, Dr. Caner has lectured on apologetics, world religions, and theology in eleven countries and has been interviewed on CNN, The 700 Club, the BBC, and elsewhere. He is coauthor of many books on global apologetics. Emir Fethi Caner (Ph.D., University of Texas at Arlington) is president of Truett-McConnell College in Cleveland, Georgia. An award-winning and best-selling author, he speaks regularly on apologetics, world religions, and theology around the world and on such media outlets as NPR, PAX, and Billy Graham's Decision Today radio program. His past experience includes pastoring, overseas missions, and church planting.

Muslims will not understand this book, because they misunderstand Christianity.
- Christians are taught that ALL human beings are equal in the eyes of God. There are no exceptions.
- Love and peace are at the heart of Christianity, doing good to all, even them that hate you, is an obligation.
- There is a world of difference between the concept of Jihad and the Just War doctrine of Christianity. The most authoritative and up-to-date expression of just war doctrine is found in paragraph 2309 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It says:
The strict conditions for legitimate defense by military force require rigorous consideration. The gravity of such a decision makes it subject to rigorous conditions of moral legitimacy. At one and the same time:
1) the damage inflicted by the aggressor on the nation or community of nations must be lasting, grave, and certain;
2) all other means of putting an end to it must have been shown to be impractical or ineffective;
3) there must be serious prospects of success;
4) the use of arms must not produce evils and disorders graver than the evil to be eliminated. The power of modern means of destruction weighs very heavily in evaluating this condition.
These are the traditional elements enumerated in what is called the "just war" doctrine. The evaluation of these conditions for moral legitimacy belongs to the prudential judgment of those who have responsibility for the common good.
What a contrast with Islam, which declares that all non-Muslim territory is "dar-al-harb", or "land of war"!
The book confirms what another courageous author, ibn Warraq (his pen name), wrote on a similar subject. Simply excellent.
