“The prophetic historiography of shared space between the Qur’ān and the Bible has been a widely discussed but seldom fully researched theme in interreligious dialogue between Muslims and Christians. This sympathetic study represents a significant step forward in this research. I heartily recommend it for all serious participants in Islamic-Christian dialogue.”
—Timothy C. Tennent, Asbury Theological Seminary
“The essays in this volume all focus on a concept that is central to both Islam and Christianity—the prophet. The essays set out the notion of the prophet in the Qur’ān and Islam and compare it with that found in the Old and New Testaments. . . . The contributors are a distinguished group of international scholars who combine impressive academic credentials with extensive ministry among Muslims.”
—Harold Netland, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
“Prophets in the Qur’ān and the Bible is a must-read text for any serious Christian who wishes to deepen their understanding of Islam from the gospel perspective, both in academic endeavors and for Christian ministries. This study of comparing the Qur’ānic and biblical prophets elucidates different fundamentals between the two faiths without disregarding their surface similarities. Even earnest Muslims can benefit from this book to be illumined on the purposes of the biblical prophets.”
—C. S. Caleb Kim, Africa International University
