Presenting his perceptions of Christianity, the author attempts to put Christianity on the same level as other religions. Written by a Muslim, A Muslim View of Christianity addresses elements of Christianity through the lens of scholastic Islam. While giving a cursory glance at some of the major issues concerning Islam, Ayoub focuses on comparisons and contrasts of the institutional forms of Islam and Christianity. The author addresses the history of the two, concentrating on Muslim teachings about Jesus Christ while dipping into subjects including redemption, holiness and apologetics.
