Answering Islam evaluates the claims of orthodox Islam from a Christian point of view, appealing especially to the Qur'an and the Bible. The authors, a Christian apologist and a former Muslim, provide apologetic answers to prepare Christians for ministry in the Islamic context. This second edition contains two new appendices, a new preface written in light of September 11, 2001, and updated information throughout.
"This book is a theological masterpiece, the most lucid and comprehensive theological analysis and critique of Islam from a Christian perspective I have ever seen. It is invaluable as a tool for understanding the most serious religious challenge to Christianity in the modern world." R. C. Sproul, Ligonier Ministries

Norman Geisler is one of America's leading Christian apologists. He is also one of the most prolific, with well over sixty titles to his name. In this volume he teams up with a former Muslin to present one of the most detailed, scholarly and up-to-date-assessments of Islam yet offered by the Christianity community.Answering Islam is a thorough examination of the major teachings and beliefs of Islam. The book is comprised of three main sections. The first deals with the various core teachings of Islam: the Koran, the place of Muhammed, the Muslim's view of man and salvation, and the doctrine of God (Allah).A number of issues are dealt with in these opening chapters, including the place of prophets in Islam, the Muslim concept of creation, the place of Christ in Islamic thinking, and the nature of eschatology in Islam. Were the book to finish here, the reader would have been treated to a wealth of information and insight into Muslim beliefs.But the second section takes us much... read more
An Excellent Answer & reply to typical accusations of Islam!
By A Customer
- January 5, 2000
Answering Islam is a decent,scholarly and level-headed rejoinder to the typical,twisted claims and bald accusations frequently put forward by Islam on Christianity. That this book is wonderfully level-headed,practically free of polemical anti-islamic wild accusations stands in stark contrast with comparable material circulating around the popular muslim press in a large part of the muslim world eg.Deedat(but already fully refuted by Gilchrist). Instead, two men have put their heads together, one a reputable scholar and the other, someone who has left Islam for the light of Christianity, to reply to some of the false claims and charges brought by muslims. The previous charge of mis-interpretations cuts both ways. Islam has very, very frequently misunderstood and misinterpreted the Gospel and Jesus Christ's teachings extremely arrogantly, blindly and foolishly. Now, That is the height of ignorance. Thats what Geisler and Abdul Saleeb have addressed in both an open and... read more
Excellent CHRISTIAN Primer for Responding to Islam!!
By David R. Bess
- February 11, 2002
If you as a Christian are looking for a good book to help you discuss differences of belief with a Muslim friend, then look no more! This volume is an excellent summary by a noted Christian apologist. It is a great start on understanding Islamic beliefs from a Christian perspective.It must be understood from the outset that this book has a definite Christian bias. It is not likely to be warmly accepted by Muslims, nor is that kind of reception its intent. This volume is a Christian apologetic work, summarizing Islam, identifying weaknesses in its major beliefs, then elaborating on the ways in which Christianity is superior to it.Geisler and Saleeb (a former Muslim) begin by describing the Islamic positions on monotheism, creation, prophets, Muhammad, the Quran, and the end of time. They then move to responding from a Christian viewpoint to these positions. The subjects of monotheism, Muhammad, and the Quran are given particular attention.Geisler and Saleeb conclude the... read more
