“Islam’s race to win the world was detoured for about four hundred years, but now it is back on track to achieve our goal—the setting up of a worldwide [community of Islam.]”
—Muslim leader in Europe
The unfolding conflict between Islam and the West is not just a clash of cultures—it is a head-to-head confrontation between a religion intent on world dominance and a culture confused and unsettled by rising hatred and violence.
In this revealing book, a veteran Christian missionary to the Muslim world examines the rapid worldwide growth of Islam and credits it to a well-financed missions strategy. This “loose strategy” is advanced through three tactical methods: jihad (holy war), Da’wah (missions), and mosques (presence).
William Wagner’s analysis includes an overview of Islamic philosophy and methodology, writings from the secular press, and quotations from Islamic writers. His conclusions about Islam’s growth, which is neither spontaneous nor accidental, should spur Christians on to become much more active in living out their faith and proclaiming the truth found in Jesus Christ.
