In this careful double exposition of the Bible and Islam, Ida Glaser and Hannah Kay emphasize godly attitudes, loving action and a deep appreciation of God's grace and goodness as essential traits of any Christian. The authors walk the reader through two underlying frameworks necessary to think biblically about Islam. The first is to understand the dynamic of religion in people's lives through Genesis 4-11's account of the world after 'the fall', and hence to understand Bible stories within the religious contexts in which they occurred. The second is at the heart of the book - the idea that Islam inverts the exaltation of Christ above the prophets in the narrative of the transfiguration in Luke 9 and 10. Examining the themes of the land, zeal, law and the cross in these chapters of Luke's Gospel and the Old Testament stories of Moses and Elijah, we are led to better understand the Bible, Islam and God's heart towards Muslims.

. . . a superb and deeply theological analysis of the Bible and the Qur'an. Anwar Al-Azad Vice-Principal, Institute for Classical Languages, Dhaka, Bangladesh This is an extraordinary book . . . [that] looks squarely at how Muslims, in all their remarkable diversity, look at a wide variety of things - events or stances or people that are treated both in the Qur'an and in the Bible . . . Highly recommended. D. A. Carson Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, IL, USA I am thrilled to see this solidly evangelical book which encourages us to think about Islam through the eyes of God and to 'listen to Him' (Luke 9:35). is book has deepened my own Christian belief through this process too. Mohammad Reza Eghtedarian Curate for Liverpool Cathedral and Sepas, UK Thinking Biblically about Islam is long overdue and a timely contribution in the current climate of intense intra-Christian debate on what to make of the Qur'an, Muhammad and whether Muslims and Christians worship the same God, among others. All readers, whatever their theological convictions, will find much to stimulate their thinking in this book. John Azumah The Lausanne Movement's Senior Associate for Islam Professor of World Christianity and Islam, Director of International Programs, Columbia Theological Seminary, USA
