Jeremiah Johnston and Craig Evans, leading biblical scholars, present Jesus and the Jihadis, your go-to-guide for understanding ISIS’ distorted theology and answering your questions about Islam and Muhammad. You will be informed on how ISIS’ terrorist acts and persecution impact your life and faith today.
Jesus and the Jihadis
As ISIS dominates news headlines, attention is given to the terrorist group’s ideology, when the true motive of their mayhem is actually found in their theology. The key to defeating ISIS’ regime of terror is understanding its theology. ISIS, rather than being an “un-Islamic” distortion of the Qur’an and Hadith, adheres to and embodies the teachings of Muhammad and Islam at its core.
Johnston and Evans persuasively show that the Islamic State is characteristically and prototypically Islamic.
The Islamic State personifies evil on a scale never seen before. “We do not understand the movement… and until we do, we are not going to defeat it” – Major General Michael K. Nagata of the Special Operations forces in the Middle East.
