I hear quite often nowadays a lot of theologians warning us about an impending danger from the religion of Islam. They say that this religion of submission to Almighty God is an enormous threat to Christianity and a threat that Catholics should know about yet know virtually little about. Why is this? What makes their religion so dangerous for us? If they teach a religion of submission to God what is the big threat to us? Can’t it just be like any other religion (Judaism, etc.)?

I recommend Catholic Answers’ online special report Endless Jihad: The Truth about Islam and Violence. For further reading, I also recommend Answering Islam by Evangelical Christians Norman L. Giesler and Abdul Saleeb, supplemented with Catholic Answers’ Islam: A Catholic Perspective.
