Books on Islam

The Third Choice: Islam, Dhimmitude and Freedom addresses the status of non-Muslims under Islamic rule in the light of history, theology and global patterns of religious discrimination. It includes a compelling overview of Islam itself, and critical reflections on the ‘dhimmitude of the West’.

Revelation: Do we worship the same God? addresses the question of whether Christians and Muslims worship the same God (Allah), honor the same Jesus (Isa), and experience the same Holy Spirit (Ruh Al-Qudus). Liberty to the Captiveshas  been prepared as a pastoral resource for use in Christian ministry contexts.  It includes teaching on Islam, Jesus and the Cross.
