The Great Divide: The Failure of Islam and the Triumph Of The West

   
Alvin J. Schmidt

“Professor Schmidt does not hack away at Islam, nor does he attack Christianity because of headlined abuses that arise in it. [...]Instead, he compares the normal practice of Christianity and Islam. He shows how Christianity grew by the blood of its martyrs, but Islam grew by killing those who opposed it. He compares the view of women in the New Testament and the Quran, showing how Christ’s teaching eventually led to the development of complementary roles for men and women but Muhammad’s teaching led to subservience. He shows how Christians looked at slavery critically over the centuries and how many fought for its abolition; Islam, though, has no intrinsic anti-slavery position, so it’s no surprise that some Islamic countries today still allow it. [...]Christians who understand these specific differences, delineated in Schmidt’s book, will strengthen their own faith and be ready to enter into discussions with Muslims without offering either appeasement or shotgun-blast aggression.”
