Caner is a committed, born-again Christian, as well as a professor of theology and church history at Criswell College in Dallas, Texas. But he was raised in a strict Muslim home in Ohio and was a devout worshiper of Allah until age 17, when he was led to Christ through the witness of one of his high school friends. Caner in turn led to Christ his own brother, Emir, who today is a professor of church history at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. These days the Caner brothers are in demand as experts on Islam, both in Christian circles as well as with the secular media. Since the terrorist attacks, they have been interviewed in such varied venues as CNN, BBC, the 700 Club, Janet Parshall's America, and Decision Today radio. They have also authored an authoritative expose, titled Islam Unveiled, a frank presentation of Islam in its entirety -- its practices, ethics, and beliefs. Perhaps of most use to Christians is the book's explanation of the stark differences between Christianity and Islam, and the counsel the Caner brothers offer Christians on how to engage Muslims in a dialogue about their legalistic religion and the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
