E 139 'Islamic Terrorism': Is there a Christian Response?

Should recent terrorist attacks by Muslims be called 'Islamic terrorism'? Does the problem lie with Islam as a religion, or with Western politics and history - or both? Can we separate the religious from the political?

These questions cannot be answered without a proper understanding of the main historical movements and figures in Islam, and of Islamic responses to recent atrocities. In an outstandingly comprehensive yet concise study, Colin Chapman sets out the main issues and offers a significant contribution to the Christian response to these events.
