"This book is a theological masterpiece, the most lucid and comprehensive theological analysis and critique of Islam from a Christian perspective I have ever seen.

Geisler and Saleeb provide a basic yet thorough introduction to the theology of orthodox Islam and its challenge it presents to orthodox Christianity.

As explained in the introduction, part one examines the Islam's fundamental beliefs, part two offers challenges to the claims of Islam; and part three provides evidence for the Christian claims against Islam. At the end of the third part, we are given five appendixes from covering Muslim sects and practices, the Gospel of Barnabas often cited by Muslims, common Muslim objections to the New Testament, violence taught in Islamic theology, and, finally and in particular, the Nation of Islam movement in America. Afterwards, is a glossary of Islamic terms and their meanings.

This is an informative read for those interested in understanding Islam, especially it's relation with the Christian faith. As we read in the introduction: "Since both orthodox Islam and Christianity claim to be the true religion, it is incumbent upon thinking persons to examine carefully the evidence offered by both and to make their own decision in view of the evidence" (p.12).
