Can Islam be reformed so that the threat of radical Muslim terrorism might subside? That is a big question that two people I have interviewed were willing to tackle.

Many years ago, Joel Rosenberg joined me in studio to talk about his book, Inside the Revolution. He does an excellent job of explaining the challenge of Islam in the 21st century. His book talks about what he believes are the three most dramatic movements of our time.

The first is what he calls “the Radicals.” These are radical Muslims who want to annihilate the United States and Israel. Many of them believe the Islamic Messiah’s arrival on Earth is “imminent” and the End of Days is at hand. One potential danger is these Muslims acquiring nuclear weapons so they might achieve their apocalyptic objectives.

The second group is “the Reformers.” These Muslims believe that that the Radicals are wrong. Rosenberg believes this movement brings hope that these Reformers can create real democracies in the Middle East.

The third group is “the Revivalists.” Millions of Muslims are abandoning Islam and turning to faith in Jesus Christ. The book and documentary explain how this is happening. These are fascinating stories.

The subtitle of the book, Inside the Revolution, tells it all. It says: “How the followers of Jihad, Jefferson, and Jesus are battling to dominate the Middle East and transform the world.” These are the three groups within Islam that will be influential in this century: the Radicals, the Reformers, and the Revivalists.

Changes in Islam will have to come from within (the Reformers) and perhaps also from without (the Revivalists). This leads to one of the most asked questions when there is a terrorist attack. Where are the modern Muslims? Where are the voices from these potential reformers?
