9780664237059: The Search for Truth about Islam: A Christian Pastor Separates Fact from Fiction

Are Muslims infiltrating American society? What does Islam really teach about women's roles? Does the Qur'an condone violence? Presbyterian pastor Ben Daniel tackles common stereotypes and misconceptions that tend to define Islam in the popular imagination. Daniel also looks at Christianity's own history of violence and explores what he calls "the American cult of fear," particularly as it relates to the rise of Islamophobia in the United States. Blending travel narrative, interviews, and well-crafted storytelling, Daniel helps debunk the myths and put a human face on Islam in America. (From Westminster John Knox Press)

About the Author:

Ben Daniel is Pastor of Foothill Presbyterian Church in San Jose, California. He is a regular blogger for the Huffington Post and provides commentary for KQED FM, the largest NPR affiliate in the United States. His previous book, Neighbor: Christian Encounters with Illegal Immigration, was named the Religion Book of the Year by ForeWord Reviews. Visit his Web site at bendaniel.org.

Review:

"A beautifully written corrective to fears about Islam. This book deserves wide readership among Christians and Muslims."
—J. Philip Wogaman, former Professor of Christian Ethics, Wesley Theological Seminary, and author of Christian Ethics, Second Edition: A Historical Introduction


"If you want to know the truth about Islam, be you Christian, Muslim or something else altogether, read this book. Daniel is more than just a Christian pastor counseling on 9/11. He is a brave, spiritual journeyman with a mighty pen."
—Asma Gull Hasan, author of Red, White & Muslim: My Story of Belief and American Muslims: The New Generation


"American readers would do well to join Ben Daniel on his journeys visiting Muslims here in the U.S. and those in the Middle East. This devoted Presbyterian minister confronts history and myth; he guides us through enlightening readings of the Qur'an and the Bible. The Search for Truth about Islam gives us hope for making peace."
—Maxine Hong Kingston, author of The Fifth Book of Peace and editor of Veterans of War, Veterans of Peace
