Jesus, Jihad and Peace



Dr. Michael Youssef is, as he writes in the preface, a man who “have had much firsthand experience with Islamic practices and thought processes.” He was born in the Middle East (Egypt), spent his early years in the culture of the Middle East, and has since visited that part of the world frequently. As the founding pastor of The Church of The Apostles in Atlanta, Georgia and the founder and President of Leading The Way, a worldwide ministry, Dr. Michael Youssef is committed to the onerous task of changing the world, and leading the way for people living in spiritual darkness to discover the light of Christ.

With his background and vast knowledge, he is an authority on the Middle East issues confronting the world, especially on matters pertaining to Christianity. As such, his latest book Jesus, Jihad and Peace: What Does Bible Prophecy Say About World Events Today? is both compelling and authoritative. It is a wake-up call which should be read not only by Christians but everyone who is concerned with the Middle East problem.

The book is insightful, and the author treads cautiously as he explains the major points of differences among three major religions of the world – Judaism, Islam and Christianity. Dr Youssef digs deep as he explains why the Middle East is in such turmoil today in the light of the Scripture. There is much in the book for all serious readers and contains the following chapters:
-Author’s Preface
-Introduction: A Wake-Up Call
-The Goal of World Domination
-Ignored Warnings
-The Prophet and the Koran
-Are Allah and Jehovah the Same God?
-What Does Islam Teach About the End Times?
-Two Different Prescriptions for Life
-What Is Jihad?
-The Global Caliphate
-All Roads Lead to Israel
-The Spreading Wildfire
-A Spiritual Battle
-God’s Peace Treaty
-Notes

If you are concerned about the present as much as its implications for the future, this book is a must-read for all. I received an advanced reader’s copy from Worthy Publishing in exchange for honest review.
