Peter Kreeft

Peter Kreeft may be a nice man but I wouldn't want him on my side if I ever had to fight. Reading a review of his new book,"Between Allah and Jesus: What Christians Can Learn from Muslims", makes me want to pat him on the head and tell him to go home and tend to his knitting. I wonder what he'd say to the survivors of the Our Lady of Salvation massacre? Would he tell them that they simply misunderstood the men who came to their church and slaughtered their priests and loved ones?

Oh dear...I love his writing but that's one book of his I won't be buying... That (his 'appreciation' of Islam) has always been around. It faded to the background after 9/11 but it's unfortunately coming out again...

Couldn't agree with you more about Kreeft. Try reading his "Ecumenical Jihad" (an oldie), where he misrepresented both Catholic and Protestant views!

Have you heard the Latin saying "fas est et ab hoste doceri"?

Or do you reject it because it is from Seneca?
