"An excellent book for the person who wants to know how to respond to questions about Islam. Is Islam about war, peace, politics or pietism? What does Islam say about Jesus, the Bible, human rights, women? In interweaving these and other themes, John Wilson skillfully presents not just Islam and its similarities and differences with Christianity, but the challenge presented by Islam for Christians to live more Christianly. The teacher in John Wilson cannot resist engaging with the new atheism of Richard Dawkins and this provides an intriguing dimension to 'Christianity Alongside Islam.' Historical stories, easy maps, photographs and ample footnotes for those who want to dig deeper all add to this outstanding book." - John Harrower, Bishop of Tasmania
