militant if it is not Church. And that is precisely because Islam is the one ...

This book explains differences between the content of the Bible and the Qur’an and between the God of the Bible and Allah of the Quran. The resulting identity of Allah serves as a wake-up call for many Christians, especially for those who think that the God of the Bible and Islam’s Allah are identical. Despite growing, militant Muslim behavior throughout the world, especially against Christians and Jews, many Christian leaders in churches and politics seem to be ignorant of the growing threat of Islam to their communities. Many examples of explicit Muslim’s inhuman behavior substantiate the global Muslim threat to completely destroy Jewish and Christian communities throughout the world. This book helps readers understand that there is a significant and most strenuous spiritual battle going on in the heavenly spheres between demons (fallen angels) and angels as ministers of God. This spiritual battle is reflected in the hearts and minds of men and women today. This book suggests how Christians need to be united in a biblical response to the growing threat of militant Islam to bring the entire world under the rule of Sharia law and worship of Islam’s Allah.

Veiled, secluded, submissive, oppressed—the "odalisque" image has held sway over Western representations of Muslim women since the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century. Yet during medieval and Renaissance times, European writers portrayed Muslim women in exactly the opposite way, as forceful queens of wanton and intimidating sexuality. In this illuminating study, Mohja Kahf traces the process through which the "termagant" became an "odalisque" in Western representations of Muslim women. Drawing examples from medieval chanson de geste and romance, Renaissance drama, Enlightenment prose, and Romantic poetry, she links the changing images of Muslim women to changes in European relations with the Islamic world, as well as to changing gender dynamics within Western societies.
