Ken talks with William Kilpatrick author of Christianity, Islam, and Atheism (Ignatius Press) For many Americans the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, was the first time they had considered Islam. Were the terrorists motivated by the true dictates of their religion, or had they hijacked Islam as well as the planes in a political cause unrelated to the teachings of Muhammad? Dr Kilpatrick makes the case that Islam is a religion of conquest and subjugation and that in spite of 9/11, and thousands of other terrorist attacks throughout the world, many in the West still do not know or admit this because it conflicts with their multiculturalism and their belief in the equivalence of all cultures and religions.

Ken’s first guest is Robert Spencer author of Not Peace But A Sword – The Great Chasm Between Christianity And Islam (Catholic Answers) Some Christians view Islam as a sister religion, a branch of the same Abrahamic tree—lacking the fullness of revelation but nonetheless a religion of peace. Others are more critical of Islamic teachings but still see Muslims as valuable partners in the global fight against secularization and the Culture of Death. Robert Spencer argues they’re both wrong—and warns Christians against the danger of thinking that Islam is an easy ally.
