Islam—once an obscure Middle Eastern religion—has rapidly grown into the second largest religion in the world. There are now more Muslims than Episcopalians in the United States! What attraction does Islam hold for its followers? What part does it play in shaping the outlook and attitudes of nearly one billion people?
Morey compares the Bible to the Qur'an, Jesus to Muhammad, and God to Allah. He explores the history and customs of Islam, as well as religious freedom and the role of women in Islam. Revised to include appendices on the Hadith and the pagan origins of Islam.
Here is a book that concisely tells what Islam is...and what it isn't! I found it absorbing, clear and very helpful.
—Dr. Erwin Lutzer, Moody Church
Morey is a careful scholar whose statements we have learned to trust. If you want a reliable, trustworthy study of Islam, this is the book for you. Morey consulted every book in the Library of Congress; he read widely and digested carefully. This volume is the fruit of his labors.
—The Biblical Evangelist
