    One thought on “Cross & the Crescent”

    1. كتاب تحليلي لأصول الاديان السماوية والقواسم المشتركة فيما بينها , يسعى الكتاب الى ردم الفوهة التي حدثت بين أتباع هذه الاديان نتيجة للفهم الخاطئ للكثير من المعتقدات اعتمد أسلوب المنطق والعقل في مناقشته ولم يبد أي تحيز لأي طرف , لايخلو من الصعوبة خصوصا في المسائل التاريخية تن [...]

    2. A respectful, startling and engaging approach to comparative religion. Of course the opinion of the book would be tainted by one's religious background but as a Muslim I found this to be an account of a timeless message and the individual quest of submitting free will for salvation

    3. This book is useful for anyone looking for a basic introduction into the beliefs and practices of Muslims, particularly someone who is unaware of the common ground shared by Islam and the other Abrahamic traditions. At the same time, the book serves as an interesting appetiser for those who have read the Bible and felt baffled by some of it's seeming contradictions. I feel the book suffers a little in this respect from being a 'jack of all trades but master of none' and wonder whether the polemi [...]

    4. Interesting analysis on similarities between the two religions (further than the obvious). Great analytics regarding Jesus's crucifixion and parts in history/bible where it supports the islamic points of view.
