In this warm and personal book the author looks at what Muslims believe and how this affects—and often doesn't affect—their behavior. Phil Parshall compares and contrasts Muslim and Christian views on the nature of God, sacred scriptures, worship, sin, and holiness.

"Plunge in and open up for an exciting mental, emotional, and spiritual experience."

From the foreword by Roberston McQuilkin, former president of Columbia International University

"Rarely have I been able to recommend a book--I guess I cannot recall doing so--with as great a contribution to the personal faith of the sensitive reader. A landmark book."

Ralph Martin, US Center for World Mission

"This book is a strong challenge to all Christians."
