    DescriptionBest-selling author Robert Spencer compares Islam with Christianity and shows that, far from being "sister religions" with similar core doctrines and morals, they're actually separated by "a great chasm" of belief and practice. A much-needed rejoinder to those who dream of an easy alliance between the two faiths.

    Review quote
    Dialogue with Islam may be the order of the day, but before we can discuss what we might have in common with Muslims, we had better be aware of the defining differences. This is the invaluable service Spencer provides in this book. With his usual clarity and insight, Spencer gets to the essence of the problems faced by anyone who thinks we can talk our way out of the challenge Islam presents. -- Robert R. Reilly "Author of The Closing of the Muslim Mind"
    Flap copy
    Some Christians view Islam as a sister religion, a branch of the same Abrahamic tree lacking the fullness of revelation but nonetheless a religion of peace. Others are more critical of Islamic teachings but still see Muslims as valuable partners in the global fight against secularization and the Culture of Death. In Not Peace but a Sword, Robert Spencer argues they're both wrong and warns Christians against the danger of thinking that Islam is an easy ally. Many Christian groups, including the Catholic Church, do recognize whatever is good and true in Islam, and their leaders rightly pursue peaceful accord and common ground with all religions. Spencer argues, however, that real peace can come only from truth. Where there is falsehood in Islamic doctrine, morals, and practice, papering over the truth actually hurts the cause of peace. And so Spencer, the New York Times best-selling author of more than a dozen books dealing with Islam and the West, shines the light of truth on areas where Christians and Muslims don't just quibble over small details but fundamentally disagree, including: The character of God, Jesus, and divine revelation The nature of truth and the source of moral law Religious freedom and other basic human rights Life issues, marriage, and sexual morality The rights and dignity of women He demonstrates how these differences are not academic but real-world. They are critical and drive Muslim behavior toward Christians and others. If we fail to open our eyes to these differences, we do so at our peril.
