Description

What do Muslims really believe?

In our multicultural world, Christians and Muslims will inevitably meet, work with, and live near each other. We hear bits and pieces about what Muslims believe, but is it all true? What does the Qur'an really say about things like Jesus, war, and non-Muslims? What does the Bible say? If we are to engage in informed, loving conversation with Muslims, we need to be equipped with more than the often-specious talking points we glean from the news or email forwards.

Comparing the Qur'an and the Bible offers an unprecedented collection of passages and doctrines of both faiths presented side by side for easy study and comparison, covering such key issues as

Jesus
jihad
ransom for sin / sacrifice
grace
rebirth
Lord God / Allah
women
marriage and divorce
homosexuality
suicide
Paradise
judgment

Islam is one of the fastest-growing faiths in the world. If we are to engage in an informed, loving conversation with Muslims, this book is an indispensible collection of accurate, understandable information taken directly from the primary source books of both faiths.

"A careful and accurate study, based on the biggest primary sources rather than rehashing what others have written--a huge plus to this book."--Paul L. Maier, author; professor of ancient history, Western Michigan University

"An objective comparison between the Bible and the Qur'an that any serious Christian student of Islam needs. Muslims will find a lot of information that would help them in discovering new avenues to understanding the Bible."--Hicham Chehab, pastor of Salam Arabic Church, Chicago; former adjunct professor of Islam at Concordia University, Michigan
