Islam and the West: Conflict, Co-Existence or Conversion


by Colin Chapman

For 1400 years Islam and the West have come into frequent contact, often in unfriendly circumstances. Today three possible states of being: conflict, co-existence or conversion must be considered when describing the meeting between Muslim and Western countries. Addressing several key issues including education, mission, apologetics and human rights, the author explores Muslim attitudes to life in the West and the increasingly secularized societies in which Muslims find themselves living.
