Are Islam and Christianity essentially the same? Should we seek to overcome divisions by seeing Muslims and Christians as part of one family of Abrahamic faith? Andy Bannister shares his journey from the multicultural streets of inner-city London to being a Christian with a PhD in Qur’anic Studies. Along the way, he came to understand that far from being the same, Islam and Christianity are profoundly different. Get to the heart of what the world’s two largest religions say about life’s biggest questions—and discover the uniqueness of Christianity’s answer to the question of who God really is.
A nuanced and sensitive examination, from an overtly Christian perspective, of how to negotiate a truth that is no less self-evident for being one that many prefer to draw a veil across: Christianity and Islam are not remotely the same. -- Tom Holland * author of Dominion and In the Shadow of the Sword * A must-read for the curious whether you have faith already or not. Prepare to be entertained, edified and gripped - I found myself unable to put it down. -- Dr Amy Orr-Ewing * President, OCCA The Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics * Few topics are more important in today's world, and few authors are more qualified to address it. -- Bruxy Cavey * Pastor of The Meeting House, author of The End of Religion * We need thinkers who have studied both religions extensively. Andy Bannister is just such an expert and he helps us wrestle with this important question with the depth and care it deserves. -- Randy Newman * Senior Fellow at The C. S. Lewis Institute and author of Questioning Evangelism. * This book is a must-read for all interested in inter-religious issues, both believers and non-believers. -- Peter G Riddell * SOAS University of London and Australian College of Theology * Persistently challenging, consistently provoking, deeply searching, and endlessly witty! -- Anna Robbins * President and Dean of Theology, Acadia University * A sharp witted, big hearted, and clear minded romp through one of the most pressing religious questions of our time. -- Dr Richard Shumack * Research Fellow, Centre for Public Christianity and Director, Arthur Jeffery Centre for the Study of Islam, Melbourne School of Theology *
