Nicknamed the “Apostle to Islam,” for nearly 40 years Samuel M. Zwemer lived and worked in the Middle East, preaching the Gospel of Jesus and training hundreds of missionaries. Founder and editor of The Moslem World, Zwemer—familiar with the land, language, and people of Islam—provided a window into a growing religion and culture that few Westerners knew. This collection is the fruit of that labor, bringing together all of Zwemer’s major works about Islam at the turn of the twentieth century.
Consisting of essays, lectures, articles from The Moslem World, and the books that made him a respected authority in his field, Zwemer’s legacy as one of the finest Christian scholars of Islam is still recognized today.
