Product Description

Islam is on the rise all over the West, including America. In this compelling new book, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges Christians to see this as both an opportunity to share the gospel and a reason for concern.

We have now reached a tipping point--the spread of Islam is rapidly altering the way we live. These changes are cause for alarm, for they endanger our freedoms of speech and religion.

At the same time, this opens an incredible door of ministry for Christians, for Muslims normally do not have access to the gospel in their own lands.

In The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent, readers will discover helpful answers to these questions and more:
  • How does Islam's growing influence affect me personally?
  • In what ways are our freedoms of speech and religion in danger?
  • How can I extend Christ's love to Muslims around me?
This sensitive, responsible, and highly informative must-read will not only equip you to better relate to your Muslim friends, neighbors, and coworkers, but will also encourage you with the reminder that ultimately the enduring truth of the cross will prevail.

    Pastor Lutzer hit a home run with this timely book. He was both instructive and comforting. While the subject may seem alarming, he made it clear that christians were not to panic, but to understand the challenges posed by this aggressive religion. Every christian should read this book; or, it will be a sad commentary that echoes the prophet, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." Great book!

    Granted, I have not read all of the recent books showing up in the Christian marketplace on Muslim evangelism, but I was greatly impressed by Erwin Lutzer's "The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent." Lutzer and his research partner, Steve Miller, have compiled a wide range of supporting material that is combined with a contemporary application of our Lord's seven letters to the Revelation churches in order to demonstrate the Islamic threat to America and the contemporary Western church. These sources are well annotated throughout the book, and the author has provided a selected bibliography for the reader. What is missing is an index and a glossary of Islamic terms that can be easily referenced. Those omissions be quickly forgiven, however, because of the informed content of this volume. What sets this book apart from so many others on the topic is Lutzer's pastoral approach. He tells us not only why Islam is so damning in its doctrine and dangerous in its practice, but he offers practical suggestions for the church to be able to face those challenges biblically. At the same time, this is not a "how to" book. Lutzer is realistic in discussing the grave threat posed by radical Islam and calls upon local churches to prepare for the possibility of real persecution. He compares the current situation involving Islam with the rising threat of Naziism in pre-World War II Germany. Nevertheless there is hope for those who are willing to count the cost and stand firm for Jesus Christ, those willing to reach out in love and not fear. The author calls upon all Christians to become informed regarding Islam beyond the reports presented by the biased mainstream media, as well as to learn how to best relate the Gospel to Muslims we work with or live near. This book is an excellent place to start!

    Review: The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent by Erwin W. Lutzer is a very encouraging and balanced viewpoint of how Christians can engage instead of fear Muslims. Most Muslims in the U.S. and around the world are not radicals, but the fundamentalist Muslims (Islamists) are pushing an agenda to Islamize America.

    Lutzer gives lessons for today's churches and ends each chapter with a salvation testimony from a Muslim. The book is very positive in assessing that Christ and the church will triumph in the end. However, the church needs to busily engage Muslims with the gospel by showing our love, compassion, and boldness in the Scriptures. Jesus Christ is the Messiah and has not been superseded by Muhammed. Allah and God of the Bible are very different.

    I highly recommend this book for anyone who is concerned about our churches and tolerance of Islam in our schools' textbooks and guidelines. Lutzer gives examples from European history how accepting and conforming to those who are intolerant of other religions only promotes intolerance and persecution.

    My only constructive criticism is for Lutzer to include the historical section of Islam's conquest of the 7th century to an earlier chapter. He doesn't include much history until the seventh chapter. Chapter ten was very enlightening; Lutzer gave many positive and practical suggestions detailing how Christians can grow in their awareness of the spiritual conflict and what they can do to stem the tide of Islamic inroads into our nation.

    The American mind set is so geared toward "live & let live" they we refuse to see what is being destroyed, look at other countries now. We are next unless we read and understand simple truths put forth in this book.

    - 57 Islamic countries exempted from laws made by the UN (United Nations) See OIC or Organization of Islamic Corp. & Cairo Declaration (Why would we accept the UN treaties that become law here? )

    - Islam does NOT allow separation of church & state

    - Islam does NOT allow "freedom of speech," cannot mention that women do not have equal rights

    - Chicago (US city) has "Board of Sharia" now in place

    - 81% of mosque in America known to have jihad literature (What about the unknown ones?)

    Read about these little know facts:

    - Mock execution for non-Islamic, Sword placed on neck

    - Pact of "false protection"

    - Tax {dhimmi (servitude) is all over Muslim world w/its jesua tax}

    - Cannot build home on higher ground than Muslim

    - Cannot remain seated if Muslim needs seat

    - Muslim men encouraged to marry non-Muslim women

    - Muslim females forbidden to marry non-Muslin men

    The list goes on but the media does NOT want you to know more.

    The Islamic use of "freedoms" to climb ladder to power is lived out in the news. Next step after power is gained is the destruction of "FREEDOM LADDER," so no others can share or have power. Look at recent history of Brotherhood in Egypt.

    (Remember Islam does NOT allow separation of church and state, so Shariah Law rules.)

    Our Constitution would then be null & void, so would UN

    Treaties. No longer could Americans live and let live, much less proclaim any other religion- Christian, Buddhist , Hindu, atheist or other.
