ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Feb. 11, 2016 — After decades of diligent research, including digging into the writings by numerous renowned scientists, historical and recent scholars, philosophers and theologians, authors Robert and Miriam Fertig have produced a highly thought-provoking book, Consequences: Science, Philosophy & the Christian-Islam Ideological Crisis. Years in the making, this book addresses the aged-old questions everyone seeks answers to, with a particular emphasis on the differences that exist in theological thinking on life issues between those of Christian faith and Islamic beliefs. These questions: Who am I? Where do I come from? Where am I going? Why is there evil in the world? What will there be after this life?
Author Fertig states, “The primary cause of the Islamic extremism crisis is the ‘literal reading of the Koran and Hadith’ (Mohammad’s tradition), such as Wahhabism, in Saudi Arabia. Christianity experienced similar heresies and hostilities in its earlier history. Muslims pray to the same God as Christians and Jews, except they do not accept Christ as Son of God. The only peaceful way to resolve this dogmatic problem is for the leading Muslim scholars to organize a Worldwide Islamic Conference. This ‘Reformist Movement’ (analogous to Church Councils, like Vatican II), will hopefully provide a more accurate and moderate interpretation of Mohammad’s teachings for the 21st century.”
Although now just hitting the marketplace, Consequences has already received strong positive commentary as a monumental work of literature. The following reviews are vivid examples:
• Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite, a company renowned in world publishing circles for its insightful book reviews and annual literary award contest on the Internet, says what fascinates her about the book is “…it delves into the ultimate truth about life and gives the answers to a lot of questions concerning religion, science and philosophy. The topics covered are thematically grouped and the book can be seen as a guide that forms a bridge between belief and skepticism.” She also praises the book for addressing “the compatibility of the Bible, Science and Philosophy, and how these three mutually support one another.” In her words, establishing of “a link between these topics, offering a different perspective.”
What further drew her to Consequences was the way it “examines the conflicting practices that arise when it comes to Islam and Christianity. The book reaches out to all those people looking to deepen their understanding of the truth.”
• Book Marketing Specialist Dale W. Hutchings says, “Consequences is unlike any book I have ever read. Even if you do not agree with every conclusion the authors make, you have to admire and appreciate the vast amount of research that went into the writing of this book. This extensive work was eye opening for me to read in terms of what scientists and renowned scholars, philosophers and theologians have stated on numerous issues that help shape where our world is today. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading thought-provoking literature. This book will captivate you for hours.”
