Not the Same God: Is the Quran's Allah the Lord God of the Bible?

The Qur’an claims that Allah and the God of the Bible is one and the same. It can be politically convenient to hold this view and may appear to promote tolerance. Yet, for true tolerance and effective dialogue, a deeper understanding of one another’s religious claims is imperative. In this book Solomon and Debs draw on Qur’anic scholarship to present a compelling case against this doctrine of 'sameness'. The characteristics of the God of the Bible are far removed from the Allah presented in the Qur’an. The Lord God of the Bible looks for a loving relationship with humankind whom he created in his image; in full revelation of himself, God became man on earth and dwells by his Holy Spirit in the hearts of all who ask him. About the Author Sam Solomon, a former Islamic jurist, was born and raised as a Muslim and trained in Sharia law for 15 years before converting to Christianity. He is a senior lecturer and research co-ordinator, a human rights activist and an advisor to British as well as European Parliamentarians. Sam is the Islamic Affairs Advisor to Christian Concern and author of many thought-provoking books and articles on Christian-Muslim relations. Dr Atif Debs, formerly a university professor and business leader at the forefront of the Energy field was also born and raised as a devout Muslim—but within a moderate context, whereby a form of tolerance to other faiths was the norm. Upon realising that the “truth” is in Biblical Christianity, he has increasingly dedicated the majority of his time to researching and expounding the contrasting relationship between Islam and Biblical Christianity. He is actively engaged in ministry both at home and internationally, in churches as well as theological and educational establishments. For More Information go Here.
