In light of the widespread public perception of incompatibility between Islam and Christianity, this book provides a much-needed straightforward comparison of these two great faith traditions from a broad theological perspective. Award-winning scholar John Renard illuminates the similarities as well as the differences between Islam and Christianity through a clear exploration of four major dimensions - historical, creedal, institutional, and ethical and spiritual. Throughout, the book features comparisons between concrete elements such as creedal statements, prayer texts, and writings from major theologians and mystics. It also includes a glossary of technical theological terms. For western readers in particular, this balanced, authoritative work overturns some common stereotypes about Islam, especially those that have emerged in the decade since September 11, 2001.

Renard shows how the reality has often been more nuanced." Times Literary Supplement (TLS) "Outstanding Academic Title for 2011... Highly recommended." -- P. S. Spalding Choice "One of the best books available for use in courses comparing Muslim and Christian thought." Journal Of Islamic Studies "Written with sensitivity and beauty." -- Matthew Friedman, Asbury Theological Seminary Religious Studies Review "Renard has a good grasp on what is important, foundational, and formative across a multitude of disciplines in both religious traditions."
