Spencer proclaims that Islam is not the religion of peace that many claim it to be. Opinions on his conclusions differ (to put it mildly), but it’s difficult to argue with Robert Spencer’s method of inquiry: It’s lawyerly, in the best sense of that term. Spencer considers the testimony of many sources--of the West and the “House of Islam”--from which he deduces meaning, intent, and possible consequences. This approach makes his findings sound valid and credible--like them or not. Nadia May’s brisk reading conveys the author’s certitude with bantering good humor. Difficult pronunciations are well rendered, a strength that helps listeners keep track of the myriad depositions on this most important of problems.
