A very interesting attempt to weave the holy books of the three Abrahamic traditions together. In the tense age in which we live, it is good to see such an even-handed account. No point scoring here. Just solid scholarship.

I'd give it five stars if I could find the button that would let me do that. :)

READ THIS BOOK! It is far more than a religious study. It is a bridge between Christianity an Islam. You don’t need to agree with everything he says, but he provides a lot of things on which to reflect.

Excellent, insightful scholarship. This book clarifies the relationship between the Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. It focuses on the close parallels between the earliest forms of Christianity and Islam as found in the Koran. The author makes the case that Jesus the Messiah has always been a major character in the Koran, more predominate than even Muhammad, and characterized as the 'Spirit and the Word of God' in the Koran. The author suggests a broader study of the Islamic Jesus in Islam could provide a solution to fight Islam extremism that has strayed from the core principles of the Koran.
