Islam and The West - Conflict, Co-existence or Conversion?

The historical and contemporary relationship between Islam and the West has been littered with bloodshed and conflict. Colin Chapman's new book on this subject, based on a set of public lectures which he gave at All Nations Christian College in early 1996, begins on an encouraging note, as he does not launch directly into the sordid aspects of Muslim-Christian relations, but reminds us from the outset that conflict and confrontation do not tell the whole story. Indeed, 'there have been times of genuine coexistence' (p.1).
