Ideological Jihad: Come Mr Aly let us reason together - Vickie Janson

Summary:

Ideological Jihad is written as an open letter to Waleed Aly in response to his book People Like Us: How arrogance is dividing Islam and the West. It gives insight into the jihad - or struggle - of competing ideas in our multicultural marketplace.

This book is an accessible mixture of personal testimony and comparative theology in the very current public debate about this so-called 'clash of civilisations'. It primarily addresses the spiritual divide between the Christian tradition of the West and the Islamic tradition. This spiritual divide is seen as inseparable from the political divide. While highlighting the rising Islamisation of Australia and other Western nations, Ideological Jihad also responds to other issues raised by Aly including secularisation, women and jihad. It is the result of careful research and face to face conversations with Muslim friends, clerics and academics. Janson presents a crucial book for all those interested in the future of Western society. Vital reading.

What They're Saying:

"The antidote to head-in-the-clouds presumption is feet-on-the-ground face-to-face engagement and plain talking, something at which Ms Janson excels... Here then is her thoughtful, lucid, respectful, and yet resistant response to Australian Muslims' repeated presentations of their vision for our nation... It is a most serious contribution to interfaith understanding, and its publication is a gift to our nation."
- Dr Mark Durie (author of Revelation)
