Identity Crisis

Identity Crisis - Religious Registration in the Middle East

– Jonathan Andrews

Andrews reveals the ways that religious registration not only brings difficulties of inequality, racism and intolerance to Christians and to Muslims who choose to follow Christ, but also how it feeds prejudices within Islam (Sunni vs. Shia). It prohibits the existence of former muslims legally in their home countries. It impacts marriage, inheritance, raising children as non-muslims and burial. Under this system former muslims cannot live or be buried as non-muslims.

 

A host of considerations is proposed so that current injustices and discriminations created by this system can be addressed to promote societies where all citizens have equal civil rights. More +

Defying ISIS

– Johnnie Moore

A Christian genocide at the hands of Islamic extremists is unfolding in the Middle East. Entire Christian populations have been eliminated, and the ultimate aim of ISIS is to eradicate the world of Christianity. They are well on their way.

Johnnie Moore unveils the threat of ISIS against worldwide Christianity, and what the world must do about it. More +

Persecuted

Persecuted: The Global Assault on Christians

– Paul Marshall, Lela Gilbert, Nina Shea

Many Americans do not understand that Christians today are victims in many parts of the world. Even many Western Christians, who worship and pray without fear of violent repercussions, are unaware that so many followers of Christ live under governments and among people who are often openly hostile to their faith. They think martyrdom became a rarity long ago.

Persecuted soundly refutes these assumptions. This book offers a glimpse at the modern-day life of Christians worldwide, recounting the ongoing attacks that rarely make international headlines.  More +

Which God?Which God?  Jesus, Holy Spirit, God in Christianity & Islam

– Mark Durie

Do we worship the same God? Today many are asking this question. In Which God? Durie demonstrates that Christians have good reasons to challenge the Islamic position that Allah of the Quran is the same as the God of the Bible.

Which God? compares the God of the Bible with Allah of the Quran and shows that these are different in many respects. They have such different personalities and distinct capacities that they cannot be said to be the same. More than this, the Islamic Jesus (Isa) is different in fundamental respects from Jesus of the Gospels. More +
