Эта книга Фархада Дафтари - первое всестороннее исследование, результат современных знаний западной науки об исмаилизме - второго по величине (после шиитов-двунадесятников) направления в шиитской ветви ислама.

That is a very important point. You hear any number of Christians make statements which in themselves are true enough, but which are left hanging in the air because the person making them cannot explain them. In this way they do definitely more harm than good, for their statements are thought of as unwarranted attacks. 15. On the other hand, the average Muslim must go through a stage of bitterness if someone succeeds in making the Gospel intelligible to him. That bitterness caused the death of Christ.
Theoretically, I dare say, we are all agreed that this statement so far is universally accepted by the Church. However, in our practical work a difficulty arises. In the threefold relationship already mentioned, usually all three, that is, subject, means and object, are concrete and visible. For example, a king (subject) with an army (means) defeats an aggressive nation (object), or a man (subject) with money (means) buys a house (object). In both cases all three in this relationship are visible and concrete.

He will throw your tract away or use it as packing paper; (ii) He may get wildly fanatical because you call God love, and Jesus His son.
