Publisher's Description

Finally, the truth...about Jesus and Muhammad This provocative book presents a factual analysis of the two most influential men of all time-Jesus, the founder of Christianity, with 2 billion adherents, and Muhammad, the founder of Islam, with 1.3 billion followers. Dr. Mark A. Gabriel allows you to walk side by side with Jesus and Muhammad from their births to their deaths. You will discover that both were prophesied over as children, endorsed by their cousins, rejected by their hometowns, and assisted by twelve disciples. With an understanding of their biographies, you are prepared to compare their teachings, including:
  • How they described themselves
  • How they responded to challenges from Jews
  • The healings and miracles they performed
  • Guidelines for acceptable prayer
  • When to fight an enemy
  • What they taught about women
Dr. Gabriel's balanced historical comparison will shatter false images and give you new insight into the influence of Jesus and Muhammad in the world today.

Author Bio

After earning a Ph.D. in Islamic history, Mark A. Gabriel became convinced that Muhammad did not speak for God. His search for truth led to the love of Jesus Christ, as well as complete rejection from his family and two attempts against his life by political fundamentalists. Now pursuing a Ph.D. in world religion at a Christian university, he speaks and writes about the true nature of Islam with the non-emotional accuracy of an academician. As a reflection of his new life in Christ, he has chosen a Christian name to replace his Islamic name.

    Jesus and Muhammad is a book that all Christians, and all thinking people need to read. There are many today who want to think that all religions are the same, and that all the prophets are equal. Read this book and see for yourself. As for the dear lady who lives in Colorado and gave this book a 1 star review; the book you could not find is available in Arabic only. Unless you did an Arabic language search, or know a librarian who can, you will not find the book. Because "Jesus and Muhammad" was written for a popular and not a scholarly audience the full reference was not given. How do I know this? Dr. Gabriel is a close friend and I asked him. Buy the book and read it for yourself.

    The author presents a riveting personal story presenting the predicament Muslim background believers encounter in converting to Christianity. One of the most repeated surahs from the Koran is that under Islam there is "no compulsion in religion." Dr. Gabriel's story, and thousands of other Muslim converts' experiences, prove that to be blatantly false. Despite Islam animosity to other faiths and the prophet Mohammed's edict to kill apostates, Dr. Gabriel underpins this book with a great love for the Muslim people. He presents the truth in love -- a good model for all Christians. Let's emulate that and love the faith on others, especially Muslims. Love it don't shove it. This is a very informative read revealing the key differences between Jesus and Mohamed. His book takes you past the politically correct version of Islam to the what history has shown to be the real thing. John 8:32 -- the truth will set you free.

    Everyone should read this book. It makes it very clear the differences in Christianity and Islam and the true backgrounds and beliefs of both from a person who has claimed both.

    As a Christian, I was very interested in Gabriel's story growing up in Egypt, and his education in Islam. It was amazing to me that some Muslims memorize the whole Quran and some of the Eadith. I'm lucky if I can rattle of 20 verses or so from the Bible. I was also interested In Gabriel's experience at Al-Azhar University, where on the first day of school the sheik tells the class, "What I tell you should be accepted as truth. I will not accept any form of class discussion. What I do not say is not worth knowing. Listen and obey and do not ask questions." It intrigued me to think that Muslims were not allowed to question those in authority or their Islamic faith. Before I went on to section 2 of "Jesus and Muhammad", I went back and tried to look up a book Gabriel mentions called "On the Sword of the Neck of the Unbeliever". It supposedly covers "the call for Muslims to accept the teachings of Muhammad without question". I looked up the book on Google and other various sites, and did not find it. I looked in the back of the book in the Bibliography, and didn't find any reference there. So, I asked a relative who was a librarian to try to find it, and he had no luck either. So, what started off as a great book lost value with me. I couldn't read the rest of the book not knowing how reliable Gabriel's sources where.
