For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Did you see it? Our war is not with flesh and blood; that means people. Our war is not against the people who choose to follow Islam. It's not against people period! Our war is against spiritual wickedness. How do we fight against spiritual wickedness. That is the hard part. That is the part we do not want to look at. We fight spiritual wickedness by taking a good hard look at ourselves and eradicating anything and everything that is not of God.The writers of this book don't seem to address that or even understand it.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com <http://BookSneeze®.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 <http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_03/16cfr255_03.html> : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and

I could go on but I will choose not to in the interest of brevity. Just know that I did not like this book and would never recommend it to any Christian individual or group as a study or otherwise.
I want to leave you with a couple of definitions and some things to think about.
The definition of Radical is
"of or going to the root or origin; fundamental: a radical difference".
