Engagement with the Muslim world and Muslim people is inevitable for Christians. After all, Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the United States. But what does the Qur'an really say about things like Jesus, war, and non-Muslims? What does the Bible say on these matters? If Christians are to engage in informed, loving conversation with their Muslim neighbors, they need to be equipped with more than the often-specious talking points they glean from the news or email forwards.Comparing the Qur'an and the Bible offers readers an unprecedented collection of Scriptures and doctrines of both faiths presented side by side for easy study and comparison, covering such key issues asJesusAbrahamcreationangels/jinnjihadthe fall of humankindpredestinationransom for sin/sacrificegracerebirthGod/Allahwomenmarriage and divorcehomosexualitysuicideresurrectionjudgmentParadiseprayerA brief explanation of each passage in the Qur'an and the Bible is given, as well as biblical answers to Islamic teaching.
