Reviews - What do our customers think?
Uncompromisingly Ecumenical  Sep 17, 2006
Peter Kreeft is a succinct and insightful teacher and author. He is also prophetic. In 'Ecumenical Jihad' he binds and discusses the commonalities of faith and culture that exist between Muslims and Christians, Christians and Confucius, and Protestants and Catholics. He shows Christians how they build an affinity and understanding from other religions without compromising their own beliefs. His great desire and goal is not only to build an understanding but also an alliance. It is amazing that this book was written five years before 9/11. In his text, he looks to the devil and secularism as the enemy. To live through the moral squalor and decay of current Western Civilization is the ailment whose remedy is to embrace faith in all its consequences with people of other creeds. He cites historical evidence that parallels our own predicament and offers an interesting solution: sainthood and martyrdom. (I guess both are the antecedent to uncompromising faith.) While some may find his exegesis to be that of an intellectual "Henny Penny," one can't argue too strongly after the ramifications of 9/11 that he was right all along.

Uncompromising, unflinching, sometimes infuriating, Peter Kreeft brings it all back home with an alchemy that is well backed by articulate scholarship.
An Excellent book for testing your beliefs.  Apr 21, 2006
If you feel any part of this book is true, or maybe could be true, or is a little bit true you are either a non-believer, apostate or oblivious. The prevailing ignorance of todays "christian" allows this book to exist.
Muslims Teach That OT and NT are corrupt  Jul 4, 2005
Any Christian interested in building constructive relationships with Islam must have a very clear idea about what Islam teaches about Judaism and Christianity. Islam teaches that what Jews and Christians revere as Holy Scripture is in fact thoroughly corrupt, so corrupt that it constitutes blasphemy. Hence the Bible is not allowed in Saudi Arabia.

Qur'an commentator Ibn Kathir on Qur'an 5:13:
"They change the words from their (right) places...) Since their comprehension became corrupt, they behaved treacherously with Allah's Ayat, altering His Book from its apparent meanings which He sent down, and distorting its indications."

This view of the Old and New Testament is drawn directly from the Koran which is seen as the unalterable Word of God. Christians who fail to understand this basic concept will only draw trouble on themselves in any enterprise concerning Islam.

Christian tolerance of Islam has not been met with Islamic tolerance of Christianity and Christians suffer terribly in Africa, the Middle East and Turkey ( a country supposedly ready to join the EU)today not in some distant past.
Clearly argued but poor sociology  Apr 12, 2004
Peter Kreeft's "Ecumenical Jihad" is at once highly intriguing and well argued. The book is based on the quite reasonable (even obvious) fact that Roman Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, evangelical Protestantism and Islam share a strong and uncompromising rejection of the tenants of the sexual revolution of the 1960s. All these religions have been extremely strong in demanding traditional roles for women (no religious authority), no permission for extramaritial sex or homosexuality, and a strong tendency to demand fidelity of loving partners. In addition, these religions share a general rejection of such countercultural trends as illicit drug use, freedom in artistic expression, and "new age" spirituality.

Kreeft is most effective in the manner in which he shows some very obvious facts, such as how the media and arts which influence our children are extremely biased against traditional religions. He indeed does this in a manner that ought to be capable of impresing anybody with an interest in religion.

However, the whole problem with every thesis done by any Catholic apologist like Peter Kreeft is the way in which they assume that the laws of the Church over the centuries are in any way natural. A look at secular sources, especially those of Marx or anarchist theorists, will show clearly how the laws that have governed and continue to govern the Catholic and Orthodox churches served to protect the power of the ruling classes. This was seen in the way the Church defended ruling classes in countries like Russia and Spain throughout the twentieth century, and may have contributed to their demise through the West (except in Australia and Red America where religion remains strong).

The societal changes brought about by industrialisation were bound in most places to lead to such events as the sexual revolution, whose ideas were spread long before the 1960s. Increasing violence in society, whatever one interprets its cause, is most likely what leads many people into forms of music like metal or rap or grunge. No matter how distasteful they really are, these forms of music have little to do with the increasing violence, though this book will make one think it self-evident that they do - when poverty and lack of opportunities are probably leading many into these forms of music.

Though well-argued, the assumption in "Ecumenical Jihad" (or any other book of religious apologetics) are dubious. Maybe worth one or two reads, but be careful.
The Truth will set us Free...  Jan 11, 2004
This book follows the leading inspiration of our Holy Father Pope John Paul II's interreligious dialogue to a fuller peaceful understanding between major religions around the world.

"In non-essentials diversity, in the essentials unity, and in all things charity." (St. Augustine)
