"Mohamed's Moon" Book Review

Mohamed's Moon

Realms (May 5, 2009)


Keith Clemons


What a good book! It is a total step apart from much of what I've been reading lately, but it is great. Identical twin brothers separated at birth, 1 raised in America as a Christian and 1 raised in Egypt as a Muslim. A plot to assassinate the president, take over the presidential office, mass murder and a lovely young lady caught in the middle of two brothers. I really appreciated the way the author shows the differences and similarities between Islam and Christianity as the brothers agree to read each others books (the Bible and Quaran) in an attempt to understand each other and appease the love of their lives, Layla. There may be a lot of coincidences in the storyline, but I just settled back and accepted them. In doing so I was really able to enjoy the book. I also really liked the fact that everything isn't tied up with a pretty little bow when it is all finished - bittersweet and beautiful. Excellent book.

Are we enemies...
or brothers?

Two brothers separated at birth grow up worlds apart. Outwardly, they're exactly alike, but inwardly, nothing's the same--one is a devotee of fundamentalist Islam; the other, a Christian. In this modern-day Cain and Abel story, the lines are drawn not just over whose God is right, but also over the fact that they're both in love with the same girl.

It's a conflict with grave repercussions, little hope of resolution--and time is running out. In the background, a plan has been set in motion that will bring the United States government to its knees. Will an unexpected visitation reconcile the brothers in time to save the woman they love--and ultimately, themselves--from the coming devastation?

In his award-winning style, author Keith Clemons delivers a profound comparison between Christianity and Islam, a dichotomy of life versus death, love versus hate, and grace versus legalism. Mohamed's Moon will plunge you into a world where hatred and heinous acts are justified. But if hatred is potent, it pales in comparison to the power of God's love.
