Understanding the threats we face–and learning how to keep our freedoms
If you’re interested in the threats we face from radical Islam—and we all should be—then I’m told you should check out these two books, one from a Christian and the other from a Muslim.
A former Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy, Jasser addresses the question, “Can a good Muslim be a good American as well?” Believing the answer can be yes, Jasser founded the American Islamic Forum for Democracy to help young Muslims appreciate and embrace America’s founding values—and to show them that violent extremism is antithetical to a religion of peace.
Mark Levin writes:
“Zuhdi Jasser is a brave American patriot, a faithful Muslim and a good man. Dr. Jasser’s Battle for the Soul of Islam proposes a cure for one of the greatest problems facing the world today: the violence and extremism of radical Islam.”

Miller seeks to help Christians navigate the culture by contending with moral relativism at home and radical Islamist threats from abroad. He criticizes American materialism, arguing that we need to fortify ourselves spiritually, especially if we want to remain strong against the threats from outside. Any of the Founding Fathers would agree: John Adams, for one, said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Marvin Olasky, editor of World magazine, praises Miller for showing:
“how the war is on for both the soul of Islam and the soul of America, and then connect[ing] those irrepressible conflicts to the Great Commission in both its theological and cultural aspects. His overview provides context for examining today’s news and pushes us to prayer for tomorrow’s discipling of all nations.”
