Christian Jihad: Two Former Muslims Look at the Crusades and Killing in the Name of Christ

Kregel Publications, 2004 - 240 pagina's

Christian Jihad is the story of a horrific journey of slaughter and conversion by the sword. It paints the picture of warriors, fighting in the name of religion. It is a journey into the darkest hour of Christianity--the Crusades.

To most in the west, the Crusades are only a faded memory of events long past. But to the Islamic world, the Crusaders have never ended their attempt to take over the world. The authors, intent on providing more than a mere history lesson, examine the impact of the Crusades on today, question ideas like just war, and urge Christians to learn from the past.

  • Best-selling & Gold Medallion award-winning co-authors of Unveiling Islam
  • A balanced history of the Crusades that also answers contemporary questions regarding war and the interaction between Christianity and Islam
  • Written by strong evangelical scholars with solid ties to the Muslim world
