Samuel Zwemer (1867-1852) was an American missionary to the Middle East and an avid writer, speaker and teacher. He was known as the “Apostle to Islam” for his untiring efforts to reach them with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

THE INFLUENCE OF ANIMISM ON ISLAM looks at the superstitions and folk-beliefs that impact the daily lives of Muslims around the world. Originally penned in 1920, Zwemer covers the use of magic, amulets and charms, sacrifice and spiritism, the belief in angels and demons and much more. This was a study well before its time and is still very relevant today!
