Which God?

Author: Mark Durie

Product code: B506

Many people ask whether Christians and Muslims worship the same God.   In `Which God?` Mark Durie demonstrates that Christians have good reasons to challenge the claim that the God of the Bible is the same deity worshipped by Muslims.

This book compares the God of the Bible with Allah of the Quran and shows that these are different in many respects. They have such different personalities and distinct capacities that they cannot be said to be the same. More than this, the Islamic Jesus (Isa) is different in fundamental respects from Jesus of the Gospels. Durie concludes that the concept of `Abrahamic Religions` is an unhelpful and misleading label for the monotheistic faiths of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. 

This is a new revised edition which includes a Foreword by William J. Murray.
