War for Islam, The
The future of the world hangs in the balance as the religion of peace struggles against violent opposition.
It is 2090 and the world is on the verge of domination by the Caliphate. The future hangs in the balance as the religion of peace struggles against violent opposition.
Islamist fanatics covering the globe are killing, burning, and bombing in an extravagant display of well-coordinated force designed to terrorize humanity out of its “godless slumber.” But two brilliant Muslim women are determined to save their religion from its counterfeit, supported by the non-Muslim religion professor they both love.
Their weapons aren’t guns and bombs, but ideas and inspired brave leadership.
As they race to show the world a new way to be Muslim and strive to return tolerance and understanding to the human race, their breathtaking adventure takes the reader from New York City to Europe, Japan, India, and Sudan. The bizarre massacres devised by the Caliphate keep steady pressure on these complex and courageous women, as do the multi-million-dollar fatwas on their lives…
Can the war for the very soul of Islam be won?

“This book blends bona fide religious scholarship with cutting-edge creative writing. Stafford Betty invites us to take a more intimate look at how Islam is experienced in America from political, social and spiritual perspectives.” Terri Daniel, Death and Awareness Educator, Editor, M.A. in Theology ~ Terri Daniel, personal correspondence
Two courageous Muslim women and a nonconformist Christian are the heroes in this stirring and important novel. Stafford Betty, like Gandhi, Tutu, King, and others, reminds us that the way to a peaceful world is the way of love and compassion, but at the price of sacrificial death. ~ Tim Vivian, Professor of Religious Studies and Islam Specialist, California State University, Bakersfield
The War For Islam projects the struggle between the two sides of Islam, extremist and moderate, onto a troubled and violent world a hundred years in the future. Its heroes are two Muslim women and a Christian man struggling to free the world from a counterfeit religion intent on world domination. Written by a professor of world religions, the novel spans the globe, from Japan to Sudan, from Belgium to India, and works brilliantly at both the geopolitical and personal levels. Betty has undertaken a uniquely ambitious project. His novel raises profoundly important questions and delights the reader along the way. ~ Norman Prigge, Ph.D., retired Associate Professor of Philosophy
