9780802869081: The Torah, the Gospel, and the Qur'an: Three Books, Two Cities, One Tale

Discussing the Bible and the Qur'an in one breath will surprise some Jews, Christians, and Muslims. But Anton Wessels argues that all three traditions must read the Scriptures together and not against each other. As his book title suggests, the three books, in the end, are actually one tale.

Wessels accepts Muhammad as a prophet and takes the Qur'an seriously as Holy Scripture along with the Old and New Testaments -- without giving up his own Christian convictions. Respectfully reading the Torah, the Gospel, and the Qur'an together, he argues, is of crucial importance: our world often sees these religious books as the cause of conflicts rather than the solution to them.

Review:

Charles Amjad-Ali
-- Luther Seminary
"Only an erudite, excellent, and critical scholar like Anton Wessels could have brought such seemingly disparate elements together in such a brilliant and enlightening way. . . . This coherent tour de force invites us to reevaluate our perspectives on truth, history, revelation, and even the divine. As always, Wessels opens up new vistas. I recommend this timely and pertinent book to anyone interested in a peaceful and just world. It is intellectually stimulating and one of the most hopeful books in our current polarized context."

Heidi Hadsell
-- Hartford Seminary
"A remarkable, helpful resource for reading the Torah, the Gospel, and the Qur’an in relation to each other focused on central questions that arise in each. . . . The reader will learn a lot about Qur’anic and biblical texts and their contexts and will have to rethink some basic assumptions about his or her religious tradition, particularly pertaining to its relationship with the other religious traditions ‘of the book.’ This is just the kind of thought and conversation that we sorely need today in order to build constructive and peaceful relationships across our religious boundaries."
