Jihad--

For the Western world the word evokes images of mass slaughter, forced religious conversion, and crimes against humanity.

But what most Christians forget is that jihad (holy war) also plays a major role in Christianity's own dark history.

In this explosive and controversial book, the Caner brothers -- two former Muslims, now staunch evangelical professors -- shine the light of truth on Christians killing the name of God.

These award-winning authors examine the impact of Christian atrocities on modern personal, cultural, and even international relations, question popular views of just war, and challenge each of us to face our past and redeem our future.
