Book Review: A God Who Hates, by Wafa Sultan

book imageShe rocked the Muslim world with interviews on Al-Jazeera in 2006. In A God Who Hates, Syrian-born Wafa Sultan disturbingly and unwittingly exposes a deity with the character of the snake (Genesis 3:15) and the dragon (Revelation 12) that hates the gender and the race that produced the Redeemer. She has some good sociological insights on why Muslim women endure oppression and how Arab Islam is unique in Islam. She is on a journey. Her book is insightful but disturbing and not to be digested uncritically. Her work is experiential and anecdotal, but also courageous and revealing.
