GETTING JESUS RIGHT: HOW MUSLIMS GET JESUS AND ISLAM WRONG
By Dr. James A. Beverley and Dr. Craig A. Evans
TORONTO - |Christian News Service| -- Is it possible that Muslims are wrong about Jesus and various tenets of Islam? In Getting Jesus Right: How Muslims get Jesus and Islam Wrong the authors answer the question: "Is the famous Muslim writer Reza Aslan mistaken in his portrayal of Jesus of Nazareth and his apologetic for Islam?" Professor James Beverley and Professor Craig Evans take an in-depth look at the most important subjects at the core of the Muslim-Christian divide: the reliability of the New Testament Gospels and the Qur'an, and what we can really know about Jesus and the prophet Muhammad.
Importantly, they also examine the implications of traditional Islamic faith on the status of women, jihad and terrorism. The book contains one of the strongest and widest collections of resources on this subject ever assembled.
Well known author of Understanding Jihad, speaker and associate professor of Religion at Rice University, Dr. David Cook, says "The authors deal with every topic, from ancient manuscripts to terrorism, from Jesus to Muhammad, from the Crusades to colonialism, with accuracy, originality and courage. Getting Jesus Right is a provocative and powerful work."
What others are saying about this book:
"This book is a scholarly and devastating critique of Reza Aslan's views on Jesus and Islam." - Robert Spencer - New York Times bestselling author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad
"Essential reading for anybody who wishes to understand and respond to the Islamic argument about Jesus and Christianity. We are far too quiet and ill-informed; it is time to be equipped and to be able to proclaim truth to all and not just some people. A vital book." - Michael Coren - Columnist, author, public speaker, and radio and television talk show host.
"Professors Beverley and Evans have given us, from a Christian perspective, a learned and wide-ranging analysis of Jesus and Islam." - Tom Holland - Author of In the Shadow of the Sword and Islam: The Untold Story
"As a former Muslim, I know how easy it is to get Jesus wrong, which is why Getting Jesus Right is so important. Scholarly yet readable, Evans and Beverley respectfully challenge us to take an unflinching look at history. And they especially shine when bringing the real Jesus of history into focus. For Christians and non-Christians alike, I enthusiastically recommend Getting Jesus Right." - Abdu Murray - Author of Grand Central Question - Answering the Critical Concerns of the Major Worldviews
