Answering Islam, 2d ed.: The Crescent in Light of the Cross
Much needed information for today's culture.
Dr. Giesler is so knowledgeable in Bible Doctrine and Theology in general. His co-author, a former Muslim, gives a clear picture of Muslim belief and thinking. Christians need to understand what we're up against and how to deal with it.

Amazing to see that there are actually muslims posting stuff on this book review on christianbook.com. This is a great book, and it accompanies the website well. It has some well balanced facts and despite what people say, no one is truly objective so there will always be biases. I am just amazing at how people say they are "born Christian" or "raised Christian." Going to church doesn't make you a Christian, just like standing in a garage doesn't make you a car "vroom vroom." The western world needs to see religion is not ethnicity...

The book states facts about Islam. I don't hate Muslims, they can be saved too. I think Muslims are writing reviews on Christian literature so they can pretend they found Islam was better and then they converted. Facts are that Isiah 53 is the same as it was in 100bc. Muhammed used the torah to handle a dispute. The Koran says Jesus was holy, born of a virgin and that Allah would cause Isa ( Jesus) to be put to death and raised. This is noty said about any other prophet in the Koran. You say that the bible is corrupt. At what point was it corrupted. Did the corruptor collect all the bible from every home and library( switch words around) and then place them back without anyone knowing. If you're posting lies about christianity this site should cut your comment. After all this is christianbook.com not I refuse christianity so I converted.com

A great resource for understanding some of the fundamental differences between Christianity and Islam. Contrary to the emotional assertions of some reviewers, this book is not hate-filled propaganda. Christianity and Islam present two very different, often opposing messages that cannot both be right. Like any good Christian apologetics book, its aim is to foster understanding and, ultimately, to offer proof for the superiority of Christ and the Christian faith.
