More than a generation has elapsed since Islam and Christianity in the Modern World was first published. This time has served to accentuate the tendencies in Christianity mentioned by the author in his chapter on “Christianity in the Modern World.” Another far-reaching change is the significant increase in the Muslim population of traditionally Christian countries (viz., in Europe and America) through both conversion and migration. The presence of sizable Muslim populations in these countries (notably West Germany,· France, U.K., U.S.A. etc.) has not only brought this two world religions into closer contact in a setting distinctly more favourable to Islam than the encounter with Christianity in the heyday of Western Imperialism and Colonialism, but has also enhanced the possibility of Islam filling the spiritual vacuum which characterises modern Christian Western civilization. Thus the topic of this book is still of contemporary relevance and interest.
