Publisher's Summary

The Koran: It may be the most controversial book in the world. Some see it as a paean to peace, others call it a violent mandate for worldwide Islamic supremacy. How can one book lead to such dramatically different conclusions? New York Times best-selling author Robert Spencer reveals the truth in The Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran: not many Westerners know what's in the Koran because few have actually read it---even among the legions of politicians, diplomats, analysts, and editorial writers who vehemently insist that the Koran preaches tolerance. Now Spencer unveils the mysteries lying behind this powerful book, guiding listeners through the controversies surrounding the Koran's origins and its most contentious passages. Stripping out the obsolete debates, Spencer focuses on the Koran's decrees toward Jews, Christians, and other infidels, explaining how they were viewed in Muhammad's time, what they've supposedly done wrong, and, most important, what the Koran has in store for them.

Every Non-Muslim Should Read This Book

This is a very honest and balanced look at the reality that is Islam. And Islam is what it is because of the Koran. While the Koran is what it is because of the life, teachings and example of Mohammad, the founder and dictator of the Koran (he was illiterate and could not read or write).

The author, Robert Spence, is not quite as conservative as I am, but his research, explanations, opinions and conclusions are quite sound. He is very gracious toward the "moderate" Muslim while not yielding to Political Correctness or white-washing the very real problem of Jihadist Islam. He makes a clear case to prove that Jihad cannot be legitimately understood apart from Mohammad's war on the infidel and his call for his followers to follow suit, which explains the constant war (including that which has existed among the differing Islamic sects since the "wars of apostasy" after Mohammad's death) and bloodshed throughout the 1,400 year history of Islam.

The narrator, Lloyd James, is one of the best in the business. A very well-read, clear narration on his part put the icing on the cake for a 5 star rating of this audio book.
