  • "Because Islam is not a religion of redemption, there is no need for the cross and no place for grace." Poignant words written by Dr. George. This book is a great introduction to Islam with helpful compare/contrast discussion to Christianity.


  • Timothy George writes a helpful Christian introduction to Islam that is respectable and peaceable. His main comparison is the doctrine of God, Christ, and salvation in Christianity versus those in Islam. He writes in mind of Christians who are unfamiliar with Islam and want to share the gospel with their Muslim neighbors and for those who may be tempted to think they are different religions following the same God. His comparisons and contrasts deal primarily with the Christian doctrine of the Tr [...]


  • This is an excellent book – clear, insightful, well-written, and irenic. There is a fine balance of history and theology here, without being either technical or reductionistic. George explores the things Christianity and Islam share in common (such as monotheism), but focuses most of his attention on how the Trinity (Christians believe in a complex oneness to the nature of God), incarnation (Christians insist that God can and has “come down” in the person of Jesus the Son, which is shirk t [...]


  • This book is written by a Christian with the purpose of examining Christianity and Islam, and seeing similarities and key differences among these faiths. I appreciated the tone of the author, not to bash or put down Islam, but to genuinely examine what these faiths believe. I believe he concisely presents a fair description of Islam and some key differences in Christianity, focusing on things such as the nature of God (including the Trinity), the concept of salvation, and the person of Jesus.I t [...]


  • I gotta say, I was impressed with this book. I am typically against this sort of apologetic book, but Dr. George does a fantastic job of being fair to Islam while standing firm on what he believes. His exposition on the importance of the Trinity and the cross were helpful for those who haven't done much study on these topics. A few years back I started reading every book on Islam I could get my hands on because I found out I had family I had never met before who were Muslims. This is definitely [...]


  • This is definitely not an apologetic book (as the author points out at the beginning). I believe the book had a wealth of good information, but I just couldn't see how the author was connecting all this information to be able to converse with a Muslim. Honestly, the book is best read as just an information guide on the similarities and differences among Christianity and Islam.


  • A balanced, readable, and scholarly work on Christianity and Islam. Christians will not disagree with what Timothy George has to say about Christianity. Muslims will not disagree with what Timothy George has to say about Islam. A good place to start becoming informed.


  • Well written comparative analysis between the two faiths, I recommend this for reading by all Christians who desire a better understanding of not only the faith of Muhammad but our own Christian belief as well.


  • A charitable discussion of the similarities and differences between Islam and Christianity. I found it very enjoyable and helpful.


  • Clear and interesting explanation of the differences and similarities of the two religions. George highlights Christ's promise of "redemption, not merely revelation [and] grace, not simply guidance."



  • This is a good comparison if Christianity and Islam. It is from a Christian point of view but is quite simpathetic to Islam. It will take several more rounds to full digest it.



  • This is an excellent book both for reviewing the basic theology of orthodox Christianity, but also to pinpoint exactly how Christian theology differs from Islam.
