Engagement with the Muslim world and Muslim people is inevitable for Christians. After all, Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the United States. But what does the Qur'an really say about things like Jesus, war, and non-Muslims? What does the Bible say on these matters? If Christians are to engage in informed, loving conversation with their Muslim neighbors, they need to be equipped with more than the often-specious talking points they glean from the news or email forwards.

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

Jesus
Abraham
creation
angels/jinn
jihad
the fall of humankind
predestination
ransom for sin/sacrifice
grace
rebirth
God/Allah
women
marriage and divorce
homosexuality
suicide
resurrection
judgment
Paradise
prayer

A brief explanation of each passage in the Qur'an and the Bible is given, as well as biblical answers to Islamic teaching. The book also motivates readers to have hearts for Muslims and seek to bring them to Christ, offering "door openers" to sharing the Good News. This indispensible collection will be treasured by anyone seeking to understand and engage their Muslim neighbors.

"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" -- www.bakerbooks.com… (more)
