Drawing upon the expertise of the foremost Christian and Muslim scholars and political analysts, this book discusses the theological and political aspects of the war on terrorism from both Muslim and Christian perspectives and critiques the neoconservative movement and its alliance with the evangelical Christian Right. This new edition examines the political consequences of this renewed evangelism in relation to Israel, the current manifestations of Muslim extremism, and its impact on peace in the Middle East.
