Item Description...
For the West, the Crusades exist as forgotten facts in faded histories . . . but the East still remembers when the Bride of Christ became a butcher. In Christian Jihad, former Muslims Ergun and Emir Caner---now Christian seminary professors---examine this dark chapter in the church's past. Discussing the interaction between Christianity and Islam, they bring balanced and practical insight to bear on a variety of timely questions.

Publishers Description

"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

The Crusades were not carried out by Christians  Mar 4, 2007
A Christian is someone who seeks to follow Christ. The Crusades were carried out by the Catholic Church which is NOT a Christian orginazation!
Roman Catholics follow man-made rules and worship men. The Bible, which is Jesus in Word, since He is the Word made flesh, explicitly tells us not to follow man-made rules over God's, or to worship men, (see Matthew 23). Islam was created by the Catholic Church, and their plan back-fired on them. See the testimony of Alberta Rivera at, who was a Jesuit priest and escaped the order, but lived to tell about his experiences before the Jesuits succeeded in killing him. He told of seeing the early writings of the Jesuits who made-up Islam, and incited them to hate true Christians. Muslims fell for the worship of a virgin queen without realizing that true Christians only worship God in Trinity, and do not worship statues of a virgin. Even Jesus'es mother, Mary, knew that she needed a Savior and would have abhored anyone worshipping her (see Matthew 1:47).
Caner needs to realize the vast difference between Catholicism and Christianity. Catholics follow the Pope and Rome and don't read the Bible. They are like robots repeating the same thing every mass. Christians read the Bible and follow Christ. They've been set free from the clutches of the anti-Christ, and his ways. They aren't robots who kill when Rome tells them to kill. Hitler, Mussolini, and Franco were all Catholics in good standing with the Catholic Church, but they were not Christians.
Christian Jihad  Dec 31, 2006
I am nearly finished with this book and have found it very enlightening and thought provoking. In other reviews here I have read that there is no such thing as a Christian Jihad. Although that may be technically true with regards to semantics- I would challenge the idea that there is no such thing as a Christain Jihad in spiritual or ideological terms, as an American Indian and Christian who is well versed in history, politics and foreign policy. Christianity itself may not be completely responsible for the acts of Western Statist powers, but often we Christians have both enabled and condoned atrocities and war crimes in the name of patriotism. The dropping of atomic bombs on civilian populations in Japan and the holocaust of the First Nations of the Americas are two quick examples. With regards to the Mid-East we have signed off on policies that have both created and enabled the growth of terrorism for the last several decades. These would include the arming and enabling of Saddam, the brutal reign of the Shah in Iran and the eventual reaction to it, the arming and training of the Mujahideen which became al Quaeda, the enabling of the Taliban, the Iran-Contra scheme and so-on. The West has actively sought for the last 40 years to squelch secular nationalist governments throughout the Mid-East and thus allowed a space for radical Islam to grow in. Again, these things may not be the responsibilities of Christaianity per se...but inasmuch as the U.S. and many of her allies are considered "Christian Nations" with high concentrations of "Christians" in the populace as well as the leadership- the message of the Caner brothers is right on point and very important- if we wish to see a more peaceful and Christ-like world.

As Christians, we are supposed to be outside of and above the worldly mechanisms that help perpetuate the self sustaining cycle of violence, death and revenge. That is what is supposed to be different about us. Our signature message is supposed to be about universal salvation- not about empire building and ridding the world of evil-doers. The Caner brothers offer a fresh and poignant perspective on this.

Somewhat Interesting  Dec 15, 2006
This book is interesting simply because it touches upon a controversial subject. By two Evangelical Christians no less. However I see how it uses kid gloves to treat Christian slaughter of others. Sort of saying "Yeah we did it but it's not nearly as bad as the Muslims." Christianity has a bloodsoaked history that I think should be exposed. Remember more people were killed in the name of Jesus than any other person.
Compelling and Factually Based  Apr 24, 2006
I have read other books by the Caners and each one sheds a new light on the subject of Isla-. I picked this particular book to see which stand the Caners opted to take on what has become a more touchy subject over the years. First, it is factual that the Crusades were a huge human tragedy in the annals of history. Unbelievers were tortured, mutliated and murdered. The Pope's call for the Crusades indicates the blind obedience that we give to other people who seem to act as though they are G-d. The Caners reveal to the reader that the Crusades did nothing but ostracize Christianity to the remainder of the world. It even divides the world today. The Muslims, Jews and other "non-Catholic" believers were persecuted and that is a fact.

Crusdaers would ride into towns and villages and regardless of the cries for mercy, they would impel young children and women on the ends of their swords and even torture anyone who tried to defend themselves.

Picture if you will, the carnage that engulfed the European and other parts of the Mediterranean on the way to Jerusalem. After realizing that I do not want to be associated with that image, I have become a Messianic Zionist and I know that the Yeshua (Jesus), that I have come to better understand does not receive any glory for the actions of extremists no matter what their religious beliefs might be.
Very Enjoyable  Jul 25, 2005
I really enjoyed the work although I did disagree with some of the propositions. I thought the authors did a very good job of making their point that Christianity has much forgiveness to seek. I think as far as that goes, tis true.

But, I think many of the assertions are a bit of a stretch, for example the assertion that Pope Urban's call was a call for unprovoked aggression. Even the quotes the authors' use indicates that the Pope was trying to take the Holy Land BACK. Also, while I think the argument can be made that there were definite political advantages in Europe that The Crusades provided. However, I think it is a far harder argument to make that The Crusades were launched solely or even primarily for domestic political reasons. I think the authors fall a little short in both cases.

Also, I think the author's condemnation of Richard the Lion hearted is weak. While there is reason for modern Christiandom to not be proud of his treatment of the conquered, it must also be dealt within the time and the culture. According to the authors'; own account RTLH accepted the surrender of the city based upon conditions that the inhabitants knew they could not fulfill. RTLH by the standards of the day, merely lived up to his promise. From his point of view it may very well be that even though the locals dealt with him dishonestly and still kept the true Cross of Christ hidden he, in his generosity did not harm the women and children. In our time by our standards that would be absurd but in the day killing the men of a town or village that did not meet your demands is not all that uncommon.

Even with the faults that this work has it is an excellent read. I think for the most part the authors' try and succeed in showing the warts of Chistiandom in a respectful manner. The work has the feel of being an internal and kind criticism. Which comes as no surprise since that was the expressed intent of the authors.
