"This affecting testament and call to action will persuade any Christian to practice love for their neighbors, regardless of their faith."-- Publishers Weekly
In an era of tension and division this volume offers a compelling case for a Christian response to an insidious problem.
This important and accessible book argues that Christians, not Muslims, should be at the forefront of efforts to end Islamophobia. While the focus is largely on the United States, the author also discusses international and historical roots and its connection to Christianity. Timely and readable, Islamophobia will be of interest to academics and lay audiences alike.
