Not the Same God: Is the Qur’anic Allah the Lord God of the Bible?

Description

The Qur’an claims that Allah and the God of the Bible is one and the same. It can be politically convenient to hold this view and may appear to promote tolerance. Yet, for true tolerance and effective dialogue, a deeper understanding of one another’s religious claims is imperative. In this book Solomon and Debs draw on Qur’anic scholarship to present a compelling case against this doctrine of ‘sameness’. The characteristics of the God of the Bible are far removed from the Allah presented in the Qur’an. The Lord God of the Bible looks for a loving relationship with humankind whom he created in his image; in full revelation of himself, God became man on earth and dwells by his Holy Spirit in the hearts of all who ask him.
