Sword of Allah

David Zeidan

Sword of Allah

David Zeidan

$22.99

Paperback
For many in the West, the worldwide presence of Islam has gone largely unnoticed over the years. Islam has simply been perceived as just another world religion. Meanwhile, Muslims have been quietly establishing themselves in most Western cultures and nations, and their places of worship have risen alongside the existing churches and gathering places in these communities. Suddenly, however, Islam has become the enemy, a force to be reckoned with and confronted. With catastrophic terrorism and war zones dotting the globe, Western nations are desperately trying to understand what lies behind all this hostility. In Sword of Allah, author David Zeidan explores the meaning of today's alarming events and paints a sobering picture of how we've come to this place. By drawing heavily from Islamic history and original sources, Zeidan creates a fascinating context for contemporary Muslim rage. Even more importantly, he provides a foundation for understanding the Muslim mindset by carefully comparing and contrasting it with Christian history and evangelical thinking.
