The rise of Islam in the West is the next and greatest challenge the contemporary Western church has to face. It is a challenge especially to pastors and other church leaders as it is their responsibility to prepare their congregations—especially the young among them—to know what Muslims believe and be ready for the difficult days ahead for Christianity in the West. Here Ian McNaughton examines the main teachings of Islam and compares them with the doctrine of the Bible, seeking throughout to speak the truth in love about God’s way of salvation as revealed in the Scriptures. Primarily aimed at informing Christians and enquirers about the historic Jesus Christ, this book is written with the conviction that it is the anointed proclamation of the gospel that saves us from the wrath to come and that will also bring Muslims to Christ in our generation in the will of God.
