"In a day of heightened awareness of Islam in the West, it is vitally important that Christians know how to give answer when asked by a Muslim for the hope that is in us."
From the Back Cover
The resurrection of Jesus: fact or fiction?
Imagine a crowded arena full of Christians, Muslims, and curious onlookers packed in to hear the outcome of one of the greatest debates in all of history. If Jesus didn't rise from the dead, Christianity is false. But if Jesus was resurrected, Christianity is true and Islam is false. The stakes are high.
Paul Meets Muhammad imagines a futuristic face-off between two religious heavyweights, each speaking on the validity of their doctrines, forming arguments and rebuttals while citing evidence from the Qur'an and the Gospel accounts. Intriguing and entertaining, this page-turner uniquely offers a comprehensive defense of Jesus's resurrection and of Christianity itself.
"Paul Meets Muhammad entertains and educates the reader with an ingeniously crafted debate that is fair to both sides. If you are a Christian looking for a resource on how to share your faith with your Muslim friend, look no further."--D. James Kennedy, chancellor, Knox Theological Seminary
"In a day of heightened awareness of Islam in the West, it is vitally important that Christians know how to give an answer when asked by a Muslim for the hope that is in us."--William Lane Craig, research professor of philosophy, Talbot School of Theology
"Licona has found the most unique manner of approaching Islamic evangelism that I have seen in quite some time. I cannot give this work a higher endorsement. This book can change lives."--Ergun Mehmet Caner, dean, Liberty Theological Seminary; co-author, Unveiling Islam
Michael R. Licona (Ph.D. cand., University of Pretoria) is director of apologetics evangelism at the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention and the co-author of The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus.

I enjoyed the idea of seeing these two historical icons debate, so I bought the book. The author, Licona, displayed an adequate knowledge of formal debate, despite failing to clearly articulate Prophet Muhammad's (SAW) methodology until his closing statement. I appreciated the author's care in representing each figure within the context of that figure's historical presence - namely, that each spoke within the confines of only what they've written (or what's been written about them during their time period, respectively).
I recommend this book to every sincere Muslim and every sincerely curious Christian. If both understood the questions and answers Licona provides in this book, it's possible that both communities could finally begin talking about the bigger issues dividing us.
I left one star off because there was a clear moment of Muslim stereotyping in the book wherein a handful of Muslims stand to berate Paul for his statements. Why Licona? Why must you fuel the view that in every crowd there's a handful of Muslims that can't be respectful. In all honesty, I would've had no problem with it if there had been a similar occurrence from the Christian audience. Why? Because if Licona can refrain from portraying Christians as disrespectful, I would expect him to refrain from portraying Muslims as disrespectful, assuming he's trying to be impartial, which I believe he is ... trying.
To conclude, it was an enjoyable read that reminded me of my long struggle with Islam and eventual conversion to Christianity. My personal journey would have gone much quicker if more books like this had existed back then. I pray all Muslims come to Christ, and I can promise that this book will help you to understand why.
I really think this book will give anyone openly seeking the truth a good look at two sides of opposing truths. Only one can be true, but the book leaves it to you to decide. Your eternity depends on what you decide so enjoy the book, then make sure your journey to find the truth continues to a conclusion!
