The Three Abrahamic Testaments
How the Torah, Gospels, and Qur’an Hold the Keys for Healing Our Fears
(Islamic Encounter Series)
Publisher: White Cloud Press
The question remains: Why can’t we all just get along?Violence pours into our lives everyday through the media from around the world and in our neighborhoods. Religion, which should be a source of peace, is often right at the center of this violence. And the three Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are engaged in complex relations of reciprocity and recrimination.
In this volatile climate, a Muslim doctor, Ejaz Naqvi, writes as a champion for seeing the Three Testaments―the Torah, the New Testament, and the Qur’an―as sources of peace for all humanity. A healer by profession, Dr. Naqvi shows how the Three Abrahamic Testaments share major values and beliefs (oneness of God, the golden rule) while not diminishing differences between the three faiths. His message is simple: You don’t have to be wrong for me to be right.
The Quran: With or Against the Bible?
A Topic-by-Topic Review for the Investigative Mind
Too often we are tempted into thinking how wrong other people’s religions and scriptures are, rather than focusing on what’s right about our own. We act like some of our politicians during election campaigns rather than following the teachings of our own holy books. Breaking the trend, author Dr. Ejaz Naqvi provides an objective, and nonpolemical, topic-by-topic review of the two most read books in the world-the Holy Bible and the Holy Quran. The Quran: With or Against the Bible? addresses the key themes of the Quran and answers commonly asked questions in search of finding common ground.
Do the Quran and the Bible send conflicting messages to their followers? Is the “God of the Quran” different from the “God of the Bible”? What is the Quranic view of the prophets, especially Moses and Jesus? What does the Quran teach about interfaith relations? Do the Quran and the Bible promote peace and harmony or do they promote violence? How does the Quran compare to the Bible on important themes like worshipping God, the prophets, human rights, moral values, and fighting for justice and human dignity? Do the Quran and the Bible render women as second-class citizens?
Dispelling major myths, The Quran: With or Against the Bible? systematically analyzes and compares the similarities in the paths of guidance the two scriptures have bestowed upon mankind.
