Review: No God But One: Allah or Jesus

9780310522553, No God But One: Allah or Jesus? : A Former Muslim Investigates the Evidence for Islam and Christianity, Nabeel Qureshi

Nabeel Qureshi in writing No God But One: Allah or Jesus? has provided a great tool for understanding and witnessing to Muslims.

First off I must commend the author for making it clear from the onset of the book that Christianity and Islam are fundamentally different. In a time when many are making the case that Christianity and Islam worship the same God and agree for the most part agree on the fundamentals the importance of emphasizing the difference between the two cannot be overstated. Qureshi addresses two questions in this work. The first question asks whether Christianity and Islam are all that different, with the answer being yes they are very different. The second question asks whether we can know whether either Christianity or Islam are true.

I believe this book will prove to be a valuable resource for Christians for several reasons. Many Christians are unsure of what they believe and why they believe it. Qureshi addresses clearly the doctrinal and historical fundamental truths of Christianity. Second Christians are often ignorant as to what Islam really believes, having often imbibed television summaries of Islam which are often unhelpful. Third it provides a fairly thorough exploration of the evidences believed to support Christianity and those which Islam claims as its support and demonstrates the weakness of the evidences of Islam.

If you are a Christian seeking to understand what Islam believes so that you can provide an effective witness for Christ I can recommend no better book. An additional bonus is that each chapter is fairly short so that the reading does not become tedious.
