"In this popularized fictional conversation among university-level participants who represent the best and worst arguments for each side, Kreeft invites us to reflect on basic theological questions concerning the nature of being God, the nature and content of divine revelation, the character of morality (public and private), and the future of the world."
"Kreeft's book is a strong encouragement to look past our theological differences, create bonds of friendship and trust, and work together for the common good. . . [A] commendable attempt to help Christians see Muslims as our neighbors rather than as the Other."
"Given the current state of the world, Between Allah & Jesus fully deserves to be called a must-read for everyone, regardless of spiritual belief or political affiliation. Kreeft creates a way to look at the perceived divide between Islam and Christianity without violence."
" Between Allah & Jesus, through its sympathetic proposal of a brith and peace-loving Muslim student, gives readers a hopeful sense of what could be, if the culture war within Islamd ends with jihadist defeat."
"Committed Christians, who want positive approaches to Islam, may wish to consider reading."
"This is a rare and sincere attempt to delve into the Islamic mind and heart, with respect and understanding. With its depth and pertinence to our post-9/11 world, I can say that this work surpasses many previous attempts by famous Orientalists to compare Christianity and Islam. Christians and evangelists can learn a lot from the fictional debates and dialogue that enrich this work. This personalized discourse could be used to teach missionaries authentic ways for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with Muslims."
"With inimitable subtlety, Peter Kreeft's literary meditation has produced a series of fictional dialogues that bring out how good Muslims and good Christians, despite the grave and irreconcilable differences marking their respective creeds, are really natural allies in the culture war against a common enemy: sin. These insights by the author, born out of a diligent love in investigating the beliefs and life practices of truly devout Muslims, map with courageous honesty minus the usual platitudes the shared moral and spiritual territory between such Muslims and equally devout Christians. Kreeft captures that primordial purity and elemental spirituality of the Muslim believer living in total surrender to God's will. Not only can Christians learn much from Muslims about the importance of submission, tradition, family, divine commandments, spiritual tenacity and rejection of the ills of modernity, Kreeft also uses precisely these strengths in Islam to level a scathing critique at the moral and spiritual laxity of the secular West. All in all, a fascinating read and a tour de force in the indirect communication through creative literature of abiding, universal verities."
"Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn more about the morals and values of Muslims. Through the moral, intelligent and open- minded Muslim young man 'Isa, you will learn not only about Islam, but you'll come to a greater understanding and security in your own Christian faith."
