Overview

In Not Peace but a Sword, Robert Spencer confronts misconceptions many people have regarding Islam, arguing that it is neither a religion of peace nor a sister religion to Christianity. Although many Christian groups, including the Catholic Church, rightly pursue peaceful accord with all religions, Spencer warns Christians against the danger of viewing Islam as an easy ally. He argues that where there is falsehood in Islamic doctrine, morals, and practice, papering over the truth will only hurt the cause of peace. Spencer highlights the many areas where Christians and Muslims fundamentally disagree, including the character of God, Jesus, and divine revelation; the nature of truth and the source of moral law; the rights and dignity of women; and religious freedom and other basic human rights. Not Peace but a Sword is a sober warning that if Christians fail to open their eyes to these differences, they do so at their peril.

Praise for the Print Edition

Robert Spencer is a careful observer of Islam and a courageous voice on behalf of Christians. In his new book, Not Peace but a Sword, he shows Catholics how to take Islam seriously without falling into alarmism, hatred, or bigotry. He provides a needed corrective to the misinformation and disinformation propagated by so many media today.

Scott Hahn, author, The Lamb’s Supper and Hail, Holy Queen

In Not Peace but a Sword, Robert Spencer carefully examines the multifaceted challenge posed to Christianity by an increasingly militant Islam. His case is calm, lucid, accurate, and uncompromising in its presentation of the facts of history. He provides an honest and unflinching account of the roots of Christian/Muslim tensions, a robust defense of Jesus Christ and Christianity in response to Muslim claims, and a sobering wake-up call to all Christians everywhere that objects in the mirror are closer (much closer) than they appear.
