Publisher's Description

Muslims love Jesus. When you meet a Muslim, you meet a person who loves Jesus. Muslims will tell you a true Muslim must love Jesus. Jesus is not the sole property of Christians they say--or is he? This story sets the Jesus of Islam, Isa ibn am-Maryam (Muhammad's seventh century conception of the first century prophet and Messiah), in direct conversation with the first century, historic Jesus of Nazareth. The reader encountersIsa and Jesus on a long walk from the little town of Emmaus to Jerusalem, a walk filled with conversation, questions, brief interaction with others, and observations from each man about the other. In the end, it is clear to the reader who Jesus is in both Islam and Christianity.

Editorial Reviews

"A valuable resource for understanding the difference between the Jesus of the Qur’an and the Jesus of the Bible. Using a captivating narration of the two Jesuses on a journey toward Jerusalem and the conversation which ensued between these two individuals, the clear differences between Islam’s and Christianity’s understanding of Jesus are exposed in a manner that is respectful to Islam, honoring to Christ, and scholarly in its substance. Using story to convey important truths from both Islam and Christianity requires an expertise of the subject matter, and Dr. Morton is able to accomplish this well. It is truly a good read. The appendices at the conclusion of the book provide additional ways of exploring the differences, providing even more insight."
" 'Who do the people say I am?' is a question still part of any discourse and in¬terfaith dialogue between the people of the Book and the followers of Islam. It is a novel approach to let the Messiah of the Book speak for himself with al Masih of the Qur’an for the purpose of bridging the gap and understanding the views held for centuries by the two peoples."
"A delightful discussion held by two competing messiahs that results in clarity."
