About the Book: This book chronicles the fascinating story of South African Muslim preacher Ahmad Deedat, from his days working in a remote rural grocery shop to become a figure of great renown in many parts of the Muslim world. By the 1980s, crowds in their thousands were cramming into lecture halls to hear him speak. Always eager to challenge and debate, Deedat confronted leading evangelical Christians on their interpretations of biblical teachings, often on their own turf. Hundreds of thousands of his pamphlets, books, videos and audio recordings have circulated globally. This book provides a wealth of information for anyone interested in the message of Islam, in interfaith dialogue, in religious polemics, or in the less documented aspects of South African and anti-colonial history.
