There is an article; 'Unveiling the Truth About Islam', by Warren Larson, on the 'Christianity Today' site.

The article is copyright for 'Christianity Today International' websites only, but here are a couple of very brief quotes:

'Ever since September 11, 2001, I have seen a sharp increase in books about Islam by American evangelicals.'

'too many of these evangelical polemics are historically inaccurate, theologically misinformed, and missiologically misguided.'


You may wish to read the item and make some comments.

It can be found here:

What is your response?

Not a bad article, but lacking in information. It was a good book review though. A couple more titles I may need to pick up.

Karen Armstrong's "Holy Wars" was a very informative book about the history of the middle east issues, although a pretty dry read.

Wasn't quite my take on the article. What I got out of it was to learn about each other so we can enter into some rational dialog. And by the way, there are some really damaging books out there written by people who have no idea.

Now, this was written by a Christian, for Christians in a Christian magazine. You're not going to see "Accept them for who they are" or "Don't try to push our ideas on them". But he also didn't come out with "This is the best way to convert people!"

I think it was more along the lines of "Learn about Islam, and decide for yourself."

As always, it's interesting how different people can read the same thing and take very different ideas out of it.

Another thought...

Writers for magazines are very limited. They have a word limit for their article and have to try to get their idea across within that limit, not to mention topic limits placed on them by editors. I thought he did a good job in getting his point across given the boundaries.

Another issue worth reconsidering.
