Can anyone recommend Logos resources on Islam?

I have the Sword of Islam, but I noticed it only has a 2 star rating, so I'm not sure that is the best history available.

I would highly recommend What Every Christian Needs to Know about the Quran by James R. White.

Its very well documented, and Dr. White is on the frontline of Islamic apologetics.

That looks really good. I may start there. I'm still looking at what's out there.

I have this collection but I don't recommend it unless you really want to get into the details of the history https://www.logos.com/product/16300/islamic-studies-collection 

I don't have this but this sounds good (friendship evangelism), although according to amazon reviews may not make a clear distinction between the Christian faith and Islamic religion: https://www.logos.com/product/43260/muslims-christians-and-jesus-gaining-understanding-and-building-relationships

I would recommend this true book:

 https://vyrso.com/product/35876/seeking-allah-finding-jesus-a-devout-muslims-journey-to-christ

I read it in two days and could not put it down. It contains a lot of information on the Muslim religion including a glossary at the end of the book with the terms used throughout the book.

Hello Kevin the following are some of the resources I have used witnessing to Muslims.

From Norman Geisler: Answering Islam The Crescent in Light of the Cross

Islam and Missions, Mohammed or Christ, and The Law of Apostasy all of them are by Samuel M. Zwemer.

Also look at Journal of Biblical Apologetics: Volumes 5,6,7,and 8 all of them talk about Islam.

I also have Seeking Allah Finding Jesus and I highly recommend it.

I really appreciate the suggestions. I'm going to start with the James White book.

Good choice! I couldn't put it down the first time I read it. Devoured it in about 4 hours! Enjoy!

To the best of my knowledge, Faithlife offers nothing useful for learning about Islam. It offers a number of resources on how Christians view Islam. There is a huge difference between the two topics. Anne-Marie Schimmel, and A. J. Arberry were the major sources of learning about Islam when I was in college ... I am sure there are newer names e.g. John L. Esposito

Ha!  I'd come to much the same conclusion.  There is this, though:

au contraire! I have no idea if Faithlife offers anything useful for learning about Islam, but one does not have to be Muslim to provide something "useful for learning about Islam." To suggest otherwise would be a fallacy. Wink

I agree completely - my statement was less than perfectly precise. What Faithlife offers has as its topic how Christians view Islam rather than Islam per se. The belief system of the author is not relevant.

 And Raynor was correct re: the Quran.  I need to be more accurate don't I? Embarrassed

The problem with just the Quran is a with just the Bible.  It is often not what the books says but how it is interpreted.

Rose Publishing has a teaching guide "Islam & Christianity" on VYRSO that I found very helpful in helping an African brother who had a Muslim girlfriend. Those teachings really set him straight as to what Islam was all about, and he broke it off with his Muslim girlfriend. He now calls me his Christian dad. Let Almighty God be glorified!!!!!!

I have created an (incomplete) Reading List "East-West Religious Dialogue" - carefully copying reliable bibliographies without comment or imposing my opinion of the included works. In the (currently) final section you will find some sources on Islam.

I think I have never seen a book about what we could learn from moslems, for example hospitality
