The Spiritual Battlefield

By Jason O'Carroll
Regular price $9.00

OCarroll was in his first year of graduate studies pursuing a Masters Degree in Divinity, at a local seminary upon discovering The Spiritual Battlefield. The discovery came about upon his taking the class Medieval and Reformation Church History January 2002. The course required thesis research on a specific topic of church history. The professor distributed a list of over fifty church history events to choose from to research. The work and research of the thesis should clearly demonstrate or prove a position. With September 11, 2001 having its place in world history just four months earlier, the professor added the church history topic of Christian views of Islam and Muhammed, i.e. Luthers view for the very first time. This thesis topic was placed at the top of the usual list. OCarroll was the only student of more than twenty in his class to choose this thought-provoking subject. He discovers and profoundly draws to the framework and context of the continuing conflict between Christianity and Islam from aspects of history, and from the works and theology of the sixteenth-century German philosopher, Dr. Martin Luther.
