The Other Prophet

Jesus in the Qur’an

1st Edition

The Qur’an identifies Jesus as a sign of God, and he holds a place as one of the most important prophets in Islam. Looking at Jesus in Islam also reveals both deep differences from and rich connections to the view of Jesus in Christianity. In The Other Prophet, Mouhanad Khorchide and Klaus von Stosch explore and explain the position of the Qur’anic Jesus, with one scholar working from the Muslim and the other from the Christian theological perspective. Their combined research presents a history of Jesus’ presence in the Qur’an and provides astute observations to deepen the understanding of both Christians and Muslims. Here we find that a common view of Jesus from the Muslim and Christian sides is not only possible, but also expands our understanding of Jesus and his message.

Reviews

"...well-structured, beautifully written [and] artfully translated.... Having committed themselves to comparative theology, [Khorchide and von Stosch's] method has also been empathetic, as they explain: 'we try to feel our way into the other's beliefs and help each other to formulate our respective faith as persuasively as possible.'"
