HASH(0xa440b7f8) out of 5 stars A Good Overview of Islam May 15 2011
By Seeking Disciple - Published on
Format: Paperback
In only a 122 pages, James Beverley provides the Christian a simple overview of Islam focusing briefly on the major tenants of Islam, the history of Islam, and the Western view of Islam after 9/11/01. His chapters, while not long at all, are meant only to offer the average Christian a basic understanding of Islam.

The positives of this book are:
1. Short chapters which make this book very easy to read. I read it in two nights.

2. Concise. Beverley does a good job covering major issues of Islam and their teachings.

3. Humble. Beverley writes with humility and he is not attacking Muslims nor trying to create hatred toward them. He rightly sees that most Muslims are not terrorists.

4. Up to date. Beverley edited the book in 2011 and it reflects nearly up to date issues of Islam.

The negatives:

1. Salvation. I would like to have seen more presentation of the Muslim view of salvation thought Islam really doesn't teach much on the subject.

2. Evangelism. I would like to have seen Beverley talk more about the need for the Church of Jesus Christ to evangelize Muslims. Muslims have no hope apart from Jesus (John 14:6; Romans 10:1-4).

3. Justification of Jihad. I would like to have seen Beverley talk more about the fact that while many Muslims do condemn jihad as attacks on people, nonetheless there is some justification by terrorists to commit militant jihad as it is found in the life of the Prophet Muhammad and in the Quran itself.


If you are looking for a simple book on Islam, this is a good book to start with. While it lacks depth, it does cover the basics well and offers a Christian to read quickly about Islam. I do recommend this book.
