Abdul Saleeb, (pseudonym), came to trust in Christ on January 20, 1985. Soon after his conversion he decided to dedicate his entire life to promoting the Good News of Christ among Muslims and especially the people of his home country. Saleeb came to the United States and received his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Biblical and Theological Studies. He currently resides in the U.S. working as a missionary.
This book is a must for everyone concerned about defending the Christian faith. Dr. Geisler and his coauthor, a former Muslim, have given one of the most comprehensive expositions and most complete evaluations of Islam in print.
Answering Islam is a valuable tool for those wrestling with the theological barriers that separate one billion Muslims from personal faith in Jesus Christ.
The Muslim presence in the United States continues to grow. It is important that we have a clearly written and fairly presented statement of what Muslims believe and how we as Christians may present the claims of Christ to them in a persuasive and loving way.
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.
