Few people can deny the vast gap that exists between the historical character of Jesus of Nazareth and the Messiah of Pauline Christianity. Farouq Zein explors the results of modern Biblical criticism through Islam’s perspective and advances the view that Islam, while denying the mythical Christ of Pauline persuasion, had been more than 12 centuries ahead of Biblical scholars in proclaiming the truth about the historical Jesus. The book further contends that the remarkable agreement arising from Qur’anic revelation and many modern Biblical findings can serve as a useful platform for further understanding, co-operation, and fruitful dialogue between Christians and Muslims.
