Description

For many Americans the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, was the first time they had considered the nature of Islam. Were the terrorists motivated by the true dictates of their religion, or had they hijacked Islam as well as the planes in a political cause unrelated to the teachings of Muhammad?Christianity, Islam and Atheism argues that Islam is a religion of conquest and subjugation and that in spite of 9/11 and thousands of other terrorist attacks throughout the world, many Western people still do not know or admit this truth because it conflicts with their belief in multiculturalism.Even many Christians who do not accept a multicultural view have hesitated to face the militant side of Islam, because they have chosen to focus on the similarities shared by people of faith in order to form a common front against the enemies of religious belief. Some churches have invited Islamic apologists and proselytizers to speak to congregations who know little to nothing about the important and irreconcilable differences between Islam and Christianity.William Kilpatrick challenges both the multicultural and common-ground approaches to Islam. He also discusses the newly aggressive atheism that is attacking religious faith in general, and Christianity in particular, in order to defend personal freedom. The civil liberties that Americans and Europeans take for granted, however, are the fruit of Christian civilization, Kilpatrick argues, and only a strong and vibrant Christianity will be able to defend them against a resurgent Islam.show more
