'An honest and scholarly analysis of the Muslim Jesus, the Christian Jesus, and the diverging paths Muslims and Christians chose to follow.'
Anwar Mehammed, head of Islamic Studies, Ethiopian Theological College, Addis Ababa

In his book The Islamic Jesus, Mustafa Akyol claims that Muslims may hail Jesus as the Messiah and the Word of God - but is that really the case? And how should Christians respond when they do?

In this sensitive and nuanced exploration of Muslim beliefs about Jesus, Richard Shumack calls for Muslims and Christians to embrace constructive disagreement as the best way to both religious peace and eternal truth. For although Muslims and Christians both love Jesus. the Jesus of Islam points down a different road to that of Christianity. The Muslim Jesus wants to you to be a better person by walking a road of passionate devotion to God; the Christian Jesus wants you to be a whole new person by joining him on a road to crucifixion and resurrection.

'If you care about Muslim-Christian relations, this book is significant.'
Dr Muhammad Kamal, Asia Institute, University of Melbourne

'Excellent ... strikes the perfect balance between academic rigour and accessibility.'
Dr Peter Riddell, SOAS University of London
