An Insider’s Look at Muslim Life and Beliefs
Raised as Sunni Muslims, brothers Ergun and Emir Caner converted from Islam to Christianity as teenagers. Now respected evangelical scholars and theologians, the Caner brothers are able to present an inside view of the Muslim life from a Christian perspective. In this updated edition of their bestselling book, the authors provide a sympathetic and realistic analysis of Islam’s practices, ethics, and beliefs, and outline the principle differences between Islam and Christianity.
Islam is often obscured by a veil of unfamiliar beliefs, customs, and practices. We watch intriguing images of Islamic nations on our televisions. We hear words like Muslim and Jihad defined in conflicting terms. But we still don’t understand.
Now, more than ever, each of us who know Christ need to join the ranks of thousands of Christians who have become friends to Muslim people, able to reach them for Christ. But for us to get there, who will explain these cultures to us clearly enough for us to get it?
