"Christian Jihad" is the story of a horrific journey of slaughter and conversion by the sword. It paints the picture of warriors, fighting in the name of religion. It is a journey into the darkest hour of Christianity--the Crusades.

To most in the west, the Crusades are only a faded memory of events long past. But to the Islamic world, the "Crusaders" have never ended their attempt to take over the world. The authors, intent on providing more than a mere history lesson, examine the impact of the Crusades on today, question ideas like "just war," and urge Christians to learn from the past. Best-selling & Gold Medallion award-winning co-authors of "Unveiling Islam" A balanced history of the Crusades that also answers contemporary questions regarding war and the interaction between Christianity and IslamWritten by strong evangelical scholars with solid ties to the Muslim world
