About-

Noah's Other Son examines twenty-five familiar figures who play major roles in the Qur'an and in both Old and New Testaments of the Bible, revealing how understanding the characters in these texts can point the present-day Muslim, Jew, and Christian toward a more mature and tolerant concept of religion. Noah's Other Son serves as an introduction to the place of the Qur'an in Muslim and world culture, as well as a tool to help equip all moderate religious people to deal with extremism wherever it may be found.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Brown, Minister of the United Church of Canada, implores the world's believers to understand one another, arguing that 'to judge all Muslims by standards set by Osama bin Laden or Saddam Hussein is as mistaken as to judge Christians by the Crusades or the Ku Klux Klan.' Respectful and moderate in tone, the text offers a sober-minded and refreshing approach to religion. Readers will acquire a mature and tolerant perspective on religion and gain an understanding of the similarities among these three influential faiths."
-- C. Brian Smith, Library Journal

"Even readers well versed in Christianity may be surprised to learn that women who are nameless in the Bible have their records in the Qur'an, and that Noah had a rebellious other son who refused to get on board the ark and thus drowned. A top pick for any serious spirituality collection."
-- Midwest Book Review
