Learn What Islam Really Teaches, Straight From Its Sacred Text

Relying on the media and politicians to tell us what Muslims believe isn't going to cut it. Christians need to be better informed, whether the goal is to understand global politics or to talk to a Muslim neighbor across the street.

Through fair and accurate use of the Qur'an and other documents, scholar and accomplished debater Dr. James White examines what Muslim sacred texts teach about Christ, salvation, the Trinity, the afterlife, and other crucial topics. This book provides the answers you've been looking for to engage in open, honest discussions about Islam with Muslims and others.


This book is magnificent! I believe this is the most thorough and comprehensive book written by an evangelical scholar on the Qur'an.

Abdul Saleeb, coauthor of Answering Islam and The Dark Side of Islam

Dr. James White has written an immensely informative, carefully documented overview of Islam and the Qur'an--rich with fascinating historical, biblical, and theological analysis.

It is absolutely essential that Christians understand that Islam and Christianity represent two contradictory sets of truth claims. James White understands this, and in this important new book he sets out the issues of truth with distinction and clarity. Christians will welcome this book as they seek to understand the challenge of Islam.

In this day when Christians face an "incorrigible plurality" of religious scriptures, Dr. White presents essential knowledge concerning the Qur'an. It comes with the added benefit of its contents having been honed in debate with Muslim scholars and laypeople. I highly recommend this book!

An excellent introduction for Christians who want to be more informed about Islam than what they can learn from news reports and the Internet. Dealing not only with historical facts but also deep theological and prophetic questions, the book is valuable for all Christians who want to communicate intelligently with their Muslim friends and neighbors.
