Christmas and the Qur'an

Originally published in German in 2008, this comparative study of Mary, Jesus and John the Baptist in the Bible and Qur’an is also the author’s call for continued dialog between Christianity and Islam. It focuses on what the two faiths share, advocating that a love of Jesus and Mary is one such commonality. Kuschel, a Catholic theologian, opens with a comparison of the different Christian gospels, particularly Mathew and Luke, about the birth of Jesus, going on to discuss how the role of Mary is both similar and different in the Bible and Qur’an. Written in simple language, this is an easily accessible and insightful comparison of the two religions, particularly for those familiar with only Christianity or Islam.
