The book that you hold in your hand contains two publications birthed from missionary experience and the cry of a heart on fire for God. The Moslem Doctrine of God (1905) and The Moslem Christ (1912) were two of the earliest of Samuel M. Zwemer's many published works. The son of Dutch immigrants to America, Zwemer was a fervent evangelical minister with the Dutch Reformed Church in America (now the Reformed Church in America) and one of the founders of the Arabian Mission. Known in his lifetime as the "Apostle to Islam," missionary Samuel M. Zwemer (1867-1952), left a rich legacy and godly example, especially regarding how the Church should think about Islam and act towards Muslims. Muslims are now a seemingly permanent fixture in the daily news, yet very few Christians have taken the time to even understand the basic facts of what they believe. Many Christians, when first learning about Islam, are often amazed at what appears to be a number of common beliefs between the two, especially as it relates to God and Jesus Christ. But is one to assume from these apparent similarities that the Koran, the holy book of Muslims, teaches the same thing as the Bible? Are Islam and Christianity really compatible? Does use of the same terminology by Muslims necessitate equal definitions of those terms within Christianity? The author explores these questions and definitively answers them. Using original Islamic source materials in Arabic, coupled with personal experience, the author reveals what Muslims actually believe about God and Jesus Christ. By so doing, he sets forth a challenge to the Christian reader to take the Gospel to Muslims.

How can Christians committed to the classical Christian tradition address the issues raised by contemporary Islam? Before a much-needed dialogue between Christians and Muslims is established, Christians need to ask themselves how their Scriptures and traditions might come to bear on such a dialogue. Do the divisions among Catholic and Evangelical Christians fracture the classical Christian tradition in ways that undercut Christian-Muslim dialogue before it has even begun? Or could the classical tradition provide invaluable resources for resolving divisions between Catholic and Evangelical Christians in ways that would prepare them for meaningful conversation with Muslim brothers and sisters? And what does it have to teach us about what Christians can and must learn from Muslims about their own traditions? The scholarly essays compiled in Christian Theology and Islam consider these and further questions, offering valuable insight for concerned Christians and academics in the fields of theology and religion.

More Than a Prophet

More Than a Prophet

For the world's one billion Muslims, Jesus is a prophet. A highly respected prophet, but one of many throughout history. For Christians, Jesus is more than a prophet. He alone is God incarnate, Lord and Savior.

For the world's one billion Muslims, Jesus is a prophet. A highly respected prophet, but one of many throughout history. For Christians, Jesus is more than a prophet. He alone is God incarnate, Lord and Savior. And therein lies the most profound difference between the two faiths. Based upon the authors' extensive dialogues and debates with skeptical, angry, and interested Muslims, liberal Christians, and mainstream journalists, More Than a Prophet answers nearly 150 questions about Islamic and Christian faith. Sympathetic to Muslim concerns yet uncompromising in its portrayal of historic Christian truth, More Than a Prophet is an indispensable handbook for Christians who want to share their faith with sensitivity and intellectual honesty. It is also a helpful introductory resource for those seeking to understand Jesus. - Back cover.

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

This volume serves to refute the popularly-held belief that Christians and Muslims worship the same God, showing that Christianity and Islam radically disagree on the nature and attributes of God. It also argues that they present Jesus in contradictory terms regarding his divinity and the historicity of the crucifixion. Additionally, the two religions have fundamentally different understandings of human nature, sin, and scripture. In honestly pointing out the reasons why these great religions cannot be reconciled, this book will appeal to theologians, as well as educated Christian and Muslim laypersons.

Jesus and the Incarnation Reflections of Christians from Islamic Contexts In the dialogues of Christians with Muslims nothing is more fundamental than the Cross, the Incarnation and the Resurrection of Jesus. An open and honest conversation on these is a necessity as Christians all over the world meet with Muslims on a daily basis. Building on the volume on the Cross, published in 2009, this book contains voices of Christians living in various 'Islamic contexts' and reflecting on the Incarnation of Jesus. The aim of these reflections is constructive and the hope is that the papers weaved around the notion of 'the Word' will not only promote dialogue among Christians on the roles of the Person and the Book but, also, create a positive environment for their conversations with Muslim neighbors.

The Islamic Inversion

The Islamic Inversion

Any endeavor to lead Muslims to Christ comes with its own unique frustrations.

Any endeavor to lead Muslims to Christ comes with its own unique frustrations. Attempts to get Muslims into Gods Word often seem to go nowhere. Islam generates a steady stream of barricades and firewalls that systematically thwart efforts to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Ironically enough, the hidden opportunities to lead Muslims to Christ may actually be found in the very assaults Muslims make on core Christian doctrines. Islamic theology conforms to a certain pattern of spiritual reversal when contrasted against sound Christian doctrine. By recognizing these patterns, Christians can find new ways to interact with Muslims in a manner that is nonconfrontational without denying the exclusivity and power of the gospel. With prayer and love, the follower of Christ may use these antiparellels, or inversions, to find a unique and peculiar avenue to share the good news with Muslims.
