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.

It is absolutely clear in the Quran and Sharia that Allah is not Almighty God.
Muslims are not allowed to be genuine allies or friends with Jews and Christians.
In Arabic, the Qur'an and Sharia, Almighty God is Ilah and Allah is ‘the god’ in English.
Almighty God is Ilah, Ar Rahman, the Beneficent, the Most Merciful, the Most Gracious.
Therefore the Qur’an was named The Criterion, the criterion between good and evil.
Qur’an 41:84 It is He Who is the only God in the heaven and the only God on the earth.
Ibn Kathir: This means He is the God of those who are in the heaven and the God of those on earth.
Qur’an 43:84 It is He Who is Ilah, God in the heaven and on the earth.
Qur’an 19:65 Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, so worship Him and abide patiently in His worship. Do you know of any other with His Name?
Ibn Kathir: Ibn Abbas says, ‘There is no one named Ar-Rahman (the Most Beneficent) other than Him, Blessed and Exalted is He. Most Holy is His Name.’
See Quran chapters 19, 21, 25, 26, 36, 37, 41, 43, 67, etc.
These are chapters for Muhammad's years in Mecca. The last time the name of God is mentioned is in chapter 2 at Medina, when Muhammad rejected the one God of Abraham and the people of the Book, the Jews and Christians, and their sacred place at Jerusalem.
Qur’an 2:163 Your God is One God. There is no god but Him, the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful.
He is the Beneficent, the Most Gracious ' Ar-Rahman, the Most Merciful ' Ar-Rahim.

Allah is always and only called Allah in Arabic.
Qur’an 6:3 And He is Allah in the heavens and on the earth.
Ibn Abbas: He is the One who is called Allah in the heavens and on the earth.

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
