The Adult Gospel
"There is compelling anecdotal evidence of a surge in conversions to Islam since September 11, not just in Britain, but across Europe and America," The Times of London reported this week. "Similar surges followed the outbreak of the Gulf War, the Bosnian conflict and the declaration of a fatwa against Salman Rushdie." These tend to be young converts, but back in 1990 (just as Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait) Christianity Today noted that Muslim converts tended to be much older than Christian ones. This article originally appeared in our August 20, 1990, issue.
