Holy War- by Bill Musk


Are we facing a clash of civilisations?

Tensions between the West and the Muslim world run high. Some Western media equate Muslims with fundamentalists - a serious error.

Nevertheless, in Muslim countries, anger with the West is widely seen as justified, particularly for the West's tolerance of injustices in Palestine. While grievances persist, there will be no shortage of willing Muslim martyrs, or Muslim attacks on Western targets.

What drives the Islamist agenda? How should Christians respond to aggressive Islam?

Islam itself tends towards fundamentalism. The Prophet Muhammad gained control of the holy site of Mecca by the sword. By the sword's equivalent today some Muslims seek to fulfil their interpretation of God's will. Dr Musk details the fundamentalist convictions, contemporary examples, and key figures, addressing central questions:

  • Where does authority lie in Islam?
  • How can reform movements develop?
  • How do "non-fundamentalist" Muslims view Islamists?
  • Can the West accommodate resurgent Islam?
  • Are all contemporary faiths streaked with a fundamentalist dye?


The Rev. Dr. Bill Musk studied history at Oxford and theology in London, Bristol, Los Angeles and Pretoria.  He has worked with Operation Mobilization, Living Bibles International, Middle East Media, the Church Mission Society and the Episcopal Church in Egypt, and is now the minister of a multi-ethnic Anglican church in south-west London.  He is also author of The Unseen Face of Islam.
