Understanding Jesus and Muhammad: What the Ancient Texts Says About Them

Bernie Power

$14.99

Paperback

Jesus and Muhammad are arguably the two most influential individuals who have ever lived. Over half of the world today claims to follow them and the religions they founded: Christianity and Islam.

But who were these two men? Where did they come from? What did they do and teach? And what was their vision for the future?

This book answers all these questions, drawing on the earliest ancient documents we have about them.

In the light of the current tensions that exist in the world, the future of civilisation may well depend on how humanity responds to Jesus and Muhammad.

Useful Resource
4 stars By Derek Davey, Aug 10 2017
This book is about 150 pages, very compact in its comparison of Jesus and Muhammad. Bernie a Melbournite, is well experienced in the culture and original documents of Islam, has studied them at doctoral level, and his book is well referenced.  The 22 chapters cover most significant matters of contention. It is a handy reference for anyone entering into a dialogue regarding Christianity and Islam. Small enough to cover the issues quickly, and referenced enough to go deeper where needed.

Authoritative and practical
5 stars By SparkLit, Jul 06 2017
Drawing on his considerable scholarship and experience in Asia and the Middle East, Bernie Power helps us to understand history's two most influential individuals and the tension between the faiths and civilisations they inspired. To real-life encounters and conversations the author brings the texts and doctrines that each faith holds as authoritative. Readers are able to compare the teachings of Jesus and Muhammad on violence, miracles, attitudes to women and the end of the age. This is a practical and concise reference work for Christians eager to engage respectfully with Muslims. (2016 Australian Christian Book of the Year judges)
