A Look Inside the Sacred Book of One of the World's Fastest-Growing Religions What used to be an exotic religion of people halfway around the world is now the belief system of people living across the street. Through fair, contextual use of the Qur'an as the primary source text, apologist James R. White presents Islamic beliefs about Christ, salvation, the Trinity, the afterlife, and other important topics. White shows how the sacred text of Islam differs from the teachings of the Bible in order to help Christians engage in open, honest discussions with Muslims.

Das wichtigste Buch zur Islam-Debatte: Ayaan Hirsi Ali und ihr Plädoyer für eine Reformation des Islam Ihre eigene Biographie und intime Kenntnis der islamischen Gesellschaften und Kultur sowie ihre Forschungen machen Ayaan Hirsi Ali zu einer der wichtigsten Stimmen in der Debatte über den Islam. Ihr neues, von Optimismus getragenes Buch, an dem sie seit Jahren arbeitet, kommt im richtigen Moment: Es nimmt die Terroranschläge in Paris zum Ausgangspunkt, bietet fundierte Einordnung und Hintergründe, vor allem aber bezieht Hirsi Ali klar Stellung: gegen einen erstarrten Islam und dessen Tolerierung durch den Westen. Und für eine Reformation ihrer Religion durch die Muslime, die sie bereits auf dem Weg sieht.

Das Christentum verehrt Jesus von Nazaret als sanften Hirten, dessen Reich nicht von dieser Welt sei. Aber entspricht dieses Bild der historischen Realität? Kann es den grausamen Kreuzestod plausibel erklären? Der amerikanische Religionswissenschaftler Reza Aslan meint: nein. Sein Buch, das in den USA für einen Skandal sorgte, versucht zu ergründen, wer Jesus war, bevor es das Christentum gab. Es ist das fesselnde, brillant erzählte Porträt eines Mannes voller Widersprüche, einer Epoche voll religiöser Inbrunst und blutiger Kämpfe und einer Weltreligion im Werden.

The first in a five-part series, this book is not solely about Islam. It surveys the rich history of Christianity in pre-Islamic Arabia, connecting biblical-era events to modern-era reality. Christianity has never existed in a vacuum. Its origins and evolution remained markedly distinct from the pervasive international and inter-continental pagan cultures in which each new generation of Christians lived. Within this context, understanding Islamic ideology becomes easier. Understanding what Islam is-and is not-is a matter of eternal consequence. One of the greatest dangers Christians face is being unable to distinguish truth from fiction. Unfortunately, many self-identifying Christians, either naïve, misinformed, or deceived, make false claims about Islam, and believe they are true. But, one cannot know what is true without knowing what is false. Discerning the difference requires wisdom and courage. This book compares and contrasts the Qur'an and the Bible's teachings about historical events, the lives and legacies of Muhammad and Jesus, and Jesus's mother, Mary, about whom an entire chapter of the Qur'an is written. It offers questions for apologetics, personal reflection and prayer. Its primary aim is to enable Christians to expose erroneous thinking, to make clear the purpose of Islam, and to encourage Christians to boldly live out the Gospel, the foundation of which solely lies in the person and work of Jesus Christ. To Him, be all praise, honor, and glory. Bethany Blankley is a former Capitol Hill staffer, Fox News Radio political analyst, public speaker and commentator on religion and politics in America.

What Every Christian Should Know about Islam can be read profitably by the serious student or by anyone who just wants to get a basic handle on the religion founded by Muhammed almost 1400 years ago. It is a distillation of the history and teachings of Islam written from a Christian perspective. An entire chapter is devoted to answering the false claims one will commonly find on Islamic web sites. Another chapter covers the subject of Islam and terrorism, and that the utilization of it as a jihadist tactic comes out of the tradition and philosophy of the revolutionary Left, rather than from the religion of Islam itself. Some other less-known facts one will discover in this book include the following: Muhammed married one of his favorite wives when she was merely a child of about nine That the Sunni/Shia division of Islam had its origin in a feud between two of Meccas clans that dates from pre-Islamic times The god of Islam, Allah, was originally the Lunar Deity of the pre-Islamic pagan Arabs That Islam itself began as a Christian heresy Muslims originally faced Jerusalem, and not Mecca, while in prayer Mr. Anderson studied Biblical languages at Life Pacific College in Los Angeles, graduating with a BA degree in 1979. He also has AS degrees from Riverside Community College in Riverside, California. Following the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, he determined to learn everything he could about Islam and the jihadist threat. What Every Christian Should Know about Islam is a product of approximately 4 years of research. Mr. Anderson has taught the Bible, Christian doctrine, and apologetics for many years in various churches in Southern Californias Inland Empire.

Von der Polizei nach Namen und Wohnort gefragt, will er beides nicht preisgeben, um die Christen in seiner Hauskirche und in seinem Heimatland China nicht zu gefährden. Er antwortet: "Ich bin ein Mann des Himmels. Ich wohne im Evangeliumsdorf." So kommt Bruder Yun zu seinem Spitznamen "Heavenly Man". Ein Leben wie im Abenteuerroman. Oder besser: wie eine neue Version der Apostelgeschichte. Mit 16 zum Glauben gekommen. Erhält von Gott Aufträge, auch in Träumen und Visionen. Mehrfach verhaftet, aber auf wundersame Weise entkommen. Schließlich doch Gefängnis und schwerste Folterungen. Durch Gottes Gnade standhaft geblieben. Er bleibt ein Zeuge Gottes. Durch ihn und zahllose andere Christen breitet sich das Evangelium in China wie in riesigen Wellen aus. Mit seinem Buch will er Gottes Taten bezeugen und die Christen im Westen aufrütteln. Damit in ihnen die Liebe zu Gott und den Menschen wieder stark wird.

Bejubelt und verdammt: Das Buch, für das Salman Rushdie zum Tode verurteilt wurde Über der englischen Küste wird ein Flugzeug in die Luft gesprengt. Die einzigen Überlebenden dieses Terroranschlags sind Gibril Farishta und Saladin Chamcha, zwei indische Schauspieler, die buchstäblich vom Himmel fallen und wie durch ein Wunder unversehrt bleiben. Doch nach dem Absturz gehen seltsame Dinge mit ihnen vor: Der Muslim Gibril zeigt immer mehr Ähnlichkeit mit dem Erzengel Gabriel, während sich Saladin, der stets seine Herkunft verleugnete, zu einem Abbild des Teufels entwickelt. Doch das ist erst der Beginn einer überwältigenden Odysee zwischen Gut und Böse, zwischen Fantasie und Realität.
