  1. These writers are quoting out of context. Readers should beware. Allow me to give an example from the bible of how things can be manipulated to fit a certain agenda.

    Deuteronomy 13:13-16

    13. Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known;

    14. Then shalt thou enquire, and make search, and ask diligently: and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought among you;

    15. Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.

    16. And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street thereof, and shalt burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, for the Lord thy God: and it shall be an heap for ever; it shall not be built again.

  2. This book is a very devotional work, written with a zeal of missionary. It appears that this work of John Ankerberg is very subjective in order to appeal to the emotions of his “audience”. If we try to judge the book based on the current scientific standards, this book falls short of that. Serious writers on a subject should not allow their sentiments and personal biases to creep into their writings, especially if they are writing about a faith which they themselves do not believe in. There is no place for such things as “intellectual dishonesty” in the scientific world. In addition, this book is filled with “out of context” information about Islam. It only reminds its readers what Shakespeare said in “The Merchant of Venice”:

    “The devil can cite scripture for his purpose.”

  3. All the reviewers here keep talking about scholarship, and unbiased information etc.

    This book is far from any of these. It is shabby, inaccurate (and at many places incorrect) and gross misrepresentation.

    If you want to read real books about Islam by people who are truly objective, then read those by John Esposito. I do not agree with Dr Espositos conclusions myself sometimes, but I respect his opinions because they are well researched and objective.

  5. This book is for those who hate Islam already, and only want to strengthen their convictions. The source material for the “research” is extremist literature and other Islam-hating books.

    For those who wish to get true scholarly information on Islam from an unbiased source, I recommend “Islam: an Introduction” by Annemarie Schimmel. She spent more years at Harvard researching Islam and Muslims than many of us have lived.
