Summary

Are Islam and Christianity the same religion, at their heart - part of the one family of Abrahamic faiths? Should we seek to overcome divisions by seeing Muslims and Christians as part of one family of Abrahamic faith? 

Andy Bannister shares his journey from the multicultural streets of inner-city London to being a Christian with a PhD in Qur’anic Studies. Along the way, he came to understand that far from being the same, Islam and Christianity are profoundly different. 

Get to the heart of what the world’s two largest religions say about life’s biggest questions - and discover the uniqueness of Christianity’s answer to the question of who God really is. 

About the author: Andy is the director of the Solas Centre for Public Christianity, an evangelism and training ministry based in Scotland. He is passionate about getting the gospel out of the four walls of the Church (and into places like coffee shops, universities, schools, pubs and so on). He also loves equipping Christians to share their faith at work or among their friends.

Deficient

Everything was excellent. Mine only quibble was the use of the Old Testament Yahweh. My comment is 'do Jews and Christians worship the same God?' To a certain extent Yes. Christians worship a Trinitarian God - Father (Yahweh), Son (Jesus) and Holy Spirit. Jews only worship Yahweh.

Convincing, compelling and engaging

This is a crystal clear comparison of the Christianity and Islam. It is underpinned by rigorous scholarship yet is presented in an accessible and engaging way. The main evidence for the comparison is the text of the Koran and the text of the Bible, many of the passages read in full. It is also a very clear presentation of the Good News about Jesus and shows the uniqueness of Jesus Christ as the fulfilment of the Old Testament. It is academic but does not feel academic. In the presentation of who God is and what He is really like it stirs the heart. It also explores questions of destiny, showing how the Bible’s presentation of eternal life in the presence of a loving God is far superior to the Koran’s offer of paradise. Anyone would benefit from reading this book if you want to understand the uniqueness of Christianity.
