"This book gives a clear analysis of the different perspectives of Christianity and Islam - in particular the way they look at language, scriptures, and the mission of Jesus. The book does not shy away from the problem of radical Islamism. Readers will find it useful in understanding the challenges of the contemporary world."
Peter Costello, Australian Federal Treasurer, 1996 - 2007.

"Christianity Alongside Islam succeeds in digesting a vast amount of information about both Christianity and Islam and presenting it in a way that is very accessible to non-specialist readers. Its readers will be equipped to engage with some of the most pressing issues facing the church and the world in the years ahead."
Professor Peter Riddell, Centre for the Study of Islam and Other Faiths.

"An excellent book for the person who wants to know how to respond to questions about Islam. Is Islam about war, peace, politics or pietism? What does Islam say about Jesus, the Bible, human rights, women? In interweaving these and other themes, John Wilson skillfully presents not just Islam and its similarities and differences with Christianity, but the challenge presented by Islam for Christians to live more Christianly. The teacher in John Wilson cannot resist engaging with the new atheism of Richard Dawkins and this provides an intriguing dimension to 'Christianity Alongside Islam.' Historical stories, easy maps, photographs and ample footnotes for those who want to dig deeper all add to this outstanding book." --John Harrower, Bishop of Tasmania
