Samuel Zwemer was a Dutch American who poured out his life in love for his Savior and for Muslims. I am thrilled to the bone to be reading his biography Apostle to Islam. Higher criticism of Scripture, especially in Europe, wrecked havoc on the church and weakened the stream of missionaries going out. Zwemer hated that higher criticism and likened it to "ants in Africa who would bite the life-germ out of a seed before they took it underground in their anthill, so it could not sprout."
