Format: Paperback
This is a good book. As a Christian living in America, my knowledge about Islam is quite limited and often influenced by a biased media. The Christian church and the Muslim mosque are filled with extremists who would like us to believe that the destruction of the "other" is the will of God. But there are other voices as well. There are Muslims and Christian who would say, "No!" to hatred, bigotry and ignorance. It is with this spirit that this book was written.

The book itself examines a document released by several prominent Muslim scholars, later answered by prominent Christian scholars, attempting to find common ground in the command to love God and our neighbor. It is certainly NOT written to argue that Christianity and Islam are the same religion, rather it is saying, "We are so different, but when we over-emphasize our differences, we are prone to hatred. Let us rather emphasize our similarities to discover a place and plan for peace." I found it not only encouraging and edifying but also helpful to my own Christian walk with God.

Highly recommended.

This is a great book pointing out the similarities between Christianity and Islam going back to their origins, dispelling myths on both sides and shedding light on their similarities.

If you really want to understand the Muslim religion, then you need to understand The Koran. For those wishing to be lulled into a false sense of security about Jihad, go ahead and read this book and be fooled. However, if you really want to know what Mohammad's agenda is all about, read Don Richardson's carefully researched volume "Secrets of the Koran." Secrets Koran Revealing Insights Islams
