Insight and Understanding into the Theology and Ideology of the ISIS
Professors Craig A. Evans and Dr. Jeremiah J. Johnston, New Testament Scholars, and highly respected thinkers collaborate in this important analysis of Mohammad, Islam, the Jihadis, and ISIS, their theology and ideology. They provide the reader with a fresh look at the growing terrorism, domination, threat of atrocities, destruction, and crimes against humanity, all in the name of Allah.
A review of Jewish history beginning with Abraham, their exodus from Egypt, and their conquest of the Promised Land, also details their expectation of a Messiah. They show how the life of Jesus, his ministry of preaching, teaching, and healing explain the reason for His death, and for His resurrection, which gave birth to the Christian Church.
A comparison is made with the origins, traditions, and teaching of Muhammad and the Qur’an, the basis for ISIS aggression, strategies, propaganda, and eschatology. The authors carefully document evidence that substantiate their position that the Islamic State adhere to and embrace the teachings of Muhammad as found in their Holy book and traditions
“Jesus and the Jihadis – Confronting the Rage of ISIS – the Theology Driving the Ideology” is highly informative and serves as a clarion call to Christians to take a stand for their faith, boldly proclaiming the message of Jesus, as the Son of God and the promised Messiah.
