For most Westerners, the Qur'an is a deeply foreign book. Christians who venture within this sacred scripture of Islam enter into a world where echoes of biblical figures and themes resound, yet the Qur'an speaks in accents and forms that defy our expectations. Its content, events, and ideas seem enigmatic.
Mark Robert Anderson's The Qur'an in Context offers a gateway into the original world and worldview of the Qur'an, opening a hermenetucal space for Christians and others to engage its fabric of religious claims. Anderson carefully engages the theology, anthropology, soteriology, spiritually, and portrayal of Jesus throughout the holy book of Islam, providing readers with a reliable guide, forthright in Christian conviction and yet sympathetically open to dialogue.

"Mark Anderson has produced an excellent, incisive, well-researched book highlighting similarities and distinctives between the Qur'an and the Bible. His research is impeccable and his conclusions will stand the test of scholarly investigation. Anderson avoids the pitfalls of inflammatory us-them polemics. He enters into the realities of the Muslim worldview by exploring the seventh-century context of the Qur'an, on which Muslim belief and behavior is built. Without reservation, I commend Anderson's work to all who desire to move beyond 'breaking news' and sensationalism and come to grips with the inside story of who Muslims really are."
Phil Parshall, SIM USA
"Demonstrating a familiarity with contemporary scholarship and respect for Muslim sensitivities, Mark Anderson describes the context in which the Qur'an arose and how it both reflected and challenged that world. While comparing and contrasting Qur'anic and biblical theology and the character of Jesus in the Qur'an and the Bible, he shows how close and how far apart they are. This study provides an excellent foundation for an informed and sensitive discussion with Muslims."
J. Dudley Woodberry, dean emeritus and senior professor of Islamic studies, Fuller Theological Seminary
"As well as providing a well-informed and nuanced introduction to the current scholarly debate over Islamic origins, The Qur'an in Context offers a substantial, theologically serious and at points provocative discussion on the Qur'an in its interface with the Bible and the core themes of the Christian faith. This lucid and thought-provoking study makes a significant contribution from an Evangelical and Reformed perspective to the wider field of Christian engagement with the scripture at the heart of Islam."
David Marshall, Duke Divinity School
