“Here, finally, is a book that so many Christians have been waiting for: a clear, thorough, and compelling examination of the Qur'an. If Christians are going to engage the Muslim world with the gospel of Jesus Christ, then they need the necessary tools to accomplish that task. And this book is one of them. I highly recommend it.”See All

“James White has given the thoughtful Christian a game-changer for Muslim-Christiandialogues about the Qur'an, the Bible, and our claims to truth. For too long, Christians have remained largely ignorant and even reluctant toward one of the world's largest faiths. We no longer have reason for either ignorance or reluctance thanks to White. I know of no other introduction to the Qur'an and Islam that is as technically competent and easy to read as James White's What Every Christian Needs to Know About the Qur'an. This book is my new go-to source and recommendation for anyone wanting a thorough introduction to the thought world of the Qur'an and the Muslims who revere it. For irenic, honest, charitable, and careful discussion of the Qur'an, this is the best resource I know.”See All

“Dr James White has written an immensely informative, carefully documented overview of Islam and the Qur'an—rich with fascinating historical, biblical, and theological analysis. In this era of rising Islamic influence declining tolerance for Christianity, evangelicals must have more than a rudimentary understanding of Islam and its history. If we're going to meet the Islamic challenge to our faith, we need to be informed, intelligent, and prepared to answer our Islamic neighbors in a forthright, clear, and thoroughly biblical way—yet with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15). This book is excellent model to show how that's done.”See All

“This book is magnificent! I believe this is the most thorough and comprehensive book written by an evangelical scholar on the Qur'an. I will surely use it and recommend it in all my teachings! I pray that every Christian serious about engaging with Muslims would read this work thoroughly. Thank you for your labor of love and scholarship”See All

“It is absolutely essential that Christians understand that Islam and Christianity represent two contradictory sets of truth claims James White understand this, and in this important new book he sets out the issues of truth with distinction and clarity. Christians will welcome this book as they seek to understand the challenge of Islam.”See All
