A writer giving soft treatment to Islamists wouldn't be a new development, but Ben Daniel isn't just any writer. He's the pastor of a church and his book was published by the Presbyterian Church (USA). This church of 2.3 million has become an ally of Islamists.
Pastor Ben Daniel leads Foothill Presbyterian Church of San Jose and his book, The Search for Truth About Islam: A Christian Pastor Separates Fact from Fiction, was released on March 25 by the official publisher of the Presbyterian Church USA.
His book "explores what he calls 'the American cult of fear,' particularly as it relates to the rise of Islamophobia in the United States."
