In Answering Islam, Christian apologist, Norman L. Geisler, and former Muslim, Abdul Saleeb, compare Christianity with major tenets of Islam and give apologetic answers to prepare Christians for ministry in the Islamic context.
In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in Answering Islam are tagged and appear on mouse-over, and all Scripture passages link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With Logos’ advanced features, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “Muslim” or “doctrine.”
This book is a must for everyone concerned about defending the Christian faith. Dr. Geisler and his coauthor, a former Muslim, have given one of the most comprehensive expositions and most complete evaluations of Islam in print.

Answering Islam is a valuable tool for those wrestling with the theological barriers that separate one billion Muslims from personal faith in Jesus Christ.
—Patrick Cate, president, International Missions, Inc.
This book is a theological masterpiece, the most lucid and comprehensive theological analysis and critique of Islam from a Christian perspective I have ever seen. It is invaluable as a tool for understanding the most serious religious challenge to Christianity in the modern world.
