Countless books have been written on the subject of Islam, making it a daunting task for the reader to select a good one. The lack of consensus among Islamic scholars also makes Islam a very complex topic. These scholars, who supposedly have the task of clearing the confusion in Islam, tend to prevaricate (beat around the bush) when questions that could help to decipher Islam are asked. As a result, ordinary Muslims and non-Muslims are generally victims of misinformation, rummaging through this morass trying to grasp Islamic teachings. Therefore, it is imperative for one to read a book with a clear, concise, and coherent message in order to gain a proper understanding of Islam. Cracks in the Crescent unravels some esoteric aspects of Islam by conspicuously illustrating them throughout my upbringing as a Muslim, my conversion to Christianity and the ensuing persecution. It is an objective appraisal of Islam that utilizes Allah’s word, the Qur’an, and Prophet Muhammad’s sayings, the Hadith, to make its case. (Read the first four chapters HERE.)


There are a few thousand copies of Cracks in the Crescent in print and are available at Hope College, Calvin College, Reformed Book Outlet and Cornerstone University bookstores and Schuler Books & Music in the United States and CPRF Bookstore in Europe.
