The Islamic Jesus: How the King of the Jews Became a Prophet of the Muslims by Mustafa Akyol
Published in February of this year, The Islamic Jesus explores the bridge which connects Jews and Christians to the followers of Mohammad. Known as one of the most beloved prophets in Islam, Jesus plays an important role in all three Abrahamic faiths. Learn how these three faith traditions intersect, what they share in common, and how the Islamic understanding of Jesus is connected to both Judaism and Christianity.
