Islamic Studies Collection 2.0

The current Islamic Studies Collection is quite dated and lags behind modern scholarship. I've compiled a list of books that would be interesting from a Christian perspective. Many of these are out of print, and insanely expensive, as they are highly sought after by Christian apologists to Islam, as well as ex-Muslims. If they were available through Logos, they would likely still be expensive, but could be made available to a much broader audience. 1.
