Religion on the Rise: Islam in the Third Millennium
Murad Wilfried Hofmann
From the back cover: “An informative, authoritative, and provocative book. Whereto is the highly civilized world heading? Are Christianity and Islam prepared to take on the challenges of a new era in human history? What are the intrinsic values and moral virtues of a humane society that can help humankind survive peacefully, guided by reason – and in harmony with divine revelation?
Dr. Murad Hofmann, former German ambassador to Algeria and Morocco, analyzes present conditions and future prospects of the Western world under Christian influence, and the Oriental civilization under Islam. While both reveal merits and demerits under his exacting critical scrutiny, he unequivocally comes down in favor of Islam as the way out of the moral decay infecting the Western society."
