The Koran for Christians seeks to help Christians further their understanding of Islam and moderate Muslims, and foster more positive interactions between the two faiths.

But veteran journalist Robert Wilson shines a spotlight on the group with this detailed history. Relying on a primary source--The White Caps: A History of the Organization in Sevier County, distributed in 1899 by the publisher of the City Directory of Knoxville--as well as his own research, he presents the most complete account to date of why the White Caps were so feared.

This search for truth and wisdom comes from the perspectives of Western culture, scientific approach, logic, reason, and monotheistic philosophies. Monotheism encompasses Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and some other lesser-known belief systems.

Original Greek scripture is referenced rather than any translation or interpretation that could have been influenced by a particular theological philosophy, organized church, church tradition, or seminary.
