about this book
  • overview

    Christians react diversely to the unexpected rise of Islam. Some preach tolerance and co-existence with Islam as the new Monotheistic creed. Others attempt to reject or degrade the reality of Islam as a Monotheistic heresy, a conspiracy, and a  living danger to Christians and their faith. During the Dark Ages in Europe, Latin translations of Arabic commentaries and translations of Greek wisdom provided for an insufficient encounter between Islam and Christianity. During this period, a few open-minded Christian scholars began to study the life, the mind and the works of the Prophet Muhammad. In addition, Muslims traveling to the West provided more of an opportunity for Westerners to gamer exposure to Islamic culture and the Prophet of Islam, such as the Islamic  principle  of tolerance  and the  acceptance  of the  sacred prophetic status of the Prophets Moses and Jesus. In this light, the Westerner's attitude towards the Prophet Muhammad had extreme variation from people such Salman Rushdi and the Danish cartoonist to Western scholars, many of whom are Catholic Priests who devote their lives to Islamic studies. This bibliography seeks to show this whole spectrum of Muslim as well as non-Muslim studies.
