Kurzbeschreibung

The days when western Christians could ignore the influence of Islam are over. Today as never before, the world’s second largest religion is shaping our culture, and words such as jihad, imam, Quran, and fatwa have entered our vocabulary. While all Muslims are no more alike than all Christians are alike, there are certain fundamental beliefs that all Muslims hold in common—some of which Christians would agree with, including belief in one true God. But is it the same God? How does the God of Muhammad differ from the God of Christianity? Written in a clear, passionate style that is conciliatory, balanced, and uncompromisingly biblical, this book describes and contrasts the distinctives of Christianity and Islam. Its author, a noted historian and theologian who has studied Islam for many years, writes with an eye on helping Christians better understand how to interact with Muslims. Beginning with an overview of Islam—what it is and how it arose—here are fascinating and relevant insights on · the Five Pillars of Islam · the role of religious violence from the Crusades onward · the doctrine of the Trinity and the character of God · Christian and Muslim views of Jesus Christ and salvation · what Christians can learn from Muslims · how Christians can share Christ with their Muslim neighbors . . . and more

Synopsis

Today as never before, the world's second largest religion is shaping our culture, and words such as jihad, imam, Quran, and fatwa have entered our vocabulary.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting, readable, and thought-provoking 22. Juli 2005
Von readermom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I thought this was a great book. One of the most interesting aspects of it was how much it teaches about Christianity. I've heard the Trinity talked about my whole life, but this book made me really think about what that means. I like the image of God's love spilling over into different persons, that God is a god of relationship and love as first demonstrated by the Trinity.

This book also made me interested to read the Quran.

It's a book that will make you think. It's also very easily readable. I read it as part of a book club, and I think we all liked the book. On a side note, I had a few people notice the book I was reading/carrying and inquire about it, so it's definitely a topic of interest to many folks right now. I think it's a good launching point for learning something about Islam.

5.0 von 5 Sternen For all Christians 14. Juni 2005
Von James Lane - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Timothy George is founding dean and professor at Beeson Divinity School. He has also been a pastor and editor of numerous Christian magazines. Currently he is executive editor of Christianity Today.

This thinish 159 page volume provides useful information for the Christian about Islam. As the back cover blurb states "The days when Western Christians could ignore the influence of Islam are over."

Not only does Dr George help make Islam more understandable, but he also explains the importance of various differences between Christianity and Islam. Perhaps most importantly, the doctrine of the Trinity is explained, defended and celebrated. Dr George says (p55) "Ironically, the doctrine of the Trinity may be at one and the same time the most important and the most neglected dotrine we hold."

The deity of Christ is another important point for any Christian wishing to examine Islam at close range. Page 62: To call Jesus Lord, not just with the lips but from the heart, is to become a Christian..."

It is at the beginning of the chapter "Why the Trinity matters" (p69) that Dr George answers the question of whether the Father of Jesus is the God of Muhammad "The answer to this question is surely both yes and no. Yes, in the sense that the Father of Jesus is the only God there is...also no for Muslim theology rejects the fatherhood of God, the deity of Jesus Christ, and the personhood of the Holy Spirit-each of which is an essential component of the Christian understanding of God."

I found the testimony of Lamin Sanneh (p102-103) quite moving. It is very reassuring to hear of converts from Islam to Christianity based on sound reasoning. This is especially the case when the convert concerned was a "leading theologian and scholar of Islam".

In chapter six, "Grace for the straight path", we are told "We need grace, not simply guidance" (p115). This points back to page 29, in which we are shown the first seven verses of the first surah of the Qu'ran that includes the words "Guide us in the straight path". I had to pause for a minute to understand this connection - but maybe that's just me.

Dr George counsels the use of both patience and perseverance (p128) in sharing the Gospel with Muslims. This means we need to employ neither "...the vilification of Islam and the denigration of Muhammad..." nor a pluralistic "...cavalier attitude toward truth..."

I didn't find one typographical error in the whole book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Explanation and Easy Reading! 11. Dezember 2004
Von J. Pace - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I found this book to be a very good explanation of many questions that are raised in our world today about differences between Islam and Christianity. Timothy George gives a strong answer for the question given in the title, "Is the Father of Jesus the God of Muhammad?" His answer is "yes" and "no." I will leave it to you to read and find out what he means, but I must admit that I agree with his answer completely.

George also brings to light the incredible importance of acknowledging the Trinity as truth. This is a major hangup to the Muslim, but it is a must to the Christian. For all Muslims who use this as a reason to ignore the claims of Christianity, you should read George's answer. Christians do not believe in three Gods! They believe in One God. For all Christians, beware of the temptation to compromise on this issue and lessen the importance of the Trinity. There is no true Christian faith without all parts of the Godhead.

I guess you could say I liked this book and encourage you to read it as well. It will help your understanding on some vitally important issues between Christianity and Islam.

5.0 von 5 Sternen this will clarify alot 22. Oktober 2004
Von Daniel M. Hixon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is a very good comparison of the worlds largest 2 religions in an age of religious violence (especially in the Middle East where Islam dominates). This discussion of Islam sites the Koran quite a bit, which is very helpful and appropriate. The author presents several perspectives on a few key points to give a more balanced presentation. The author also explains why the doctrine of the Trinity is a 'must' for Christians and why Islam can not accept it. This book is very informative and it is easy to read. The author is a master at what he does!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Respectful and Christ Exalting 22. Mai 2010
Von Dr. Marc Axelrod - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book came out in the wake of the 9-11 attacks, and the author wants to correct some misconceptions about Islam. He says "Yes, the Father of Jesus is the God of Muhammad because the Father of Jesus is God over everyone!" But he also says "No, the loving Father of Jesus bears little resemblance to the deity that Muhammad recognizes. Interesting .....

The writer (Timothy George) discusses the things Islam has in common with Christianity (belief that God sent Jesus to preach to the people, that he was born of the virgin Mary, that he called the people to come back to God, and that God had given his message to His servants the prophets.

But George also discusses the differences (Islam doesn't teach that Christ died for our sins and rose again, nor do they believe that Jesus is the Son of God and co-equal and co-eternal with the Father, ie, no Trinity).

George then discusses why the Trinity matters and why we should present the message of the cross to Muslims. This book is a winner!
