About the Book

With Americans still in shock after watching packed airliners slam into the twin towers, George W. Bush asked America, “Why do they hate us?” 

After 9/11, the world became more fearful, and acts of terrorism were prominent in the news cycles. In Why Do They Hate Us?, author Steve Slocum takes the spotlight off the extremists and instead exposes the heart of the everyday Muslim through Christian outreach.

Why Do They Hate Us? brings the story of Mohammed to life and unveils the storied history of Islam with refreshing detail. Slocum clears up common misconceptions about jihad, Sharia law and the role of women in Islam. He then connects the dots for readers of all faiths between cause and effect for the rise in Islamophobia. Finally, Slocum suggests practical ways to overcome societal fears by face-to-face interaction with our Muslim neighbors.

Why Do They Hate Us? is sprinkled with stories from the lives of everyday Muslims and anecdotes from Slocum’s time in Kazakhstan, allowing the reader to catch a glimpse of a different side of Muslims than portrayed in the media.

“Before reading this book I knew very little about Islam despite a pastoral career. I now feel like I know much more. It left me with a hunger to befriend Muslims.” – Pastor Martha Freeman, M.Div.

About the Author
Steve Slocum

Steve Slocum took the adventure of a lifetime when he traveled with his family of five to Kazakhstan to become missionaries. Slocum and his family were among the first Americans to learn the Kazakh language and experience the culture of the indigenous Kazakhs. They were often on the receiving end of the iconic Muslim hospitality. It left a lasting impression.

Back in the states, Slocum resumed his engineering career, but grew uneasy with the growing levels of animosity towards Muslims. In 2018 he founded a nonprofit organization called Salaam whose mission is creating mutual understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims.

Slocum is an ambassador for the Parliament of World Religions and is a presenter at the 2018 Parliament in Toronto. He is a frequent speaker at churches, mosques, and civic groups.
