The Third Jihad
Radical Islam has been waging war against our global civilization throughout history—and now, it’s closer than ever to American soil. Dr. Michael Youssef, a Coptic Christian who was born in Egypt and now leads a megachurch in America, knows from firsthand experience that radical Islamists have goals that many American Christians believe are “unthinkable.” In this book, he warns Western Christians that it doesn’t help to ignore what’s going on. There’s a third jihad underway, and its goal is to take over the West.
The Third Jihad is a call for Christians to defend their families, protect their nation, and boldly share the good news of Jesus with their communities—especially their Muslim neighbors.
Packed with surprising insights from history, compelling and dramatic stories, and a practical agenda that one person—or one church—can immediately put into practice to make a difference in the world. Rich in encouraging biblical principles and prophetic insights, The Third Jihad leads the reader to an empowering conclusion in our troubling (and even frightening) times.
Michael Youssef’s insights will inspire Christians to take their faith seriously, share their faith freely, and to truly be salt and light in a world of increasing darkness and decay.
My thoughts: This is an excellent current events book to pick up, since it does a wonderful job of showing a clear and concise time line of how events are leading up to the call for a creation of the Islamic State of North America by 2050. I hadn't heard of the call that a Washington DC Iman put forth for the Islamic State, so I was glad to have picked up this book! It was an informative read that I highly recommend. I think that "Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus" is a good book to read with this one.
I received this book from Tyndale. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
