Claiming Abraham

Full Product Description

Many of the Bible's characters and stories are also found in the Qur'an, but there are often differing details or new twists in the Qur'an's retelling of biblical narrative. In this compelling book, seasoned theologian Michael Lodahl explores these fascinating divergences to discover the theological difference they make. Writing from a Christian perspective that is respectful of the Islamic tradition, Lodahl offers an accessible introduction to Muslim theology and to the Qur'an's leading themes to help readers better understand Islam. Lodahl compares and contrasts how the Bible and the Qur'an depict and treat certain characters in common to both religions, including Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. He offers theological reflection on doctrines held in common by Christians and Muslims, such as creation, revelation, and resurrection of the body. Lodahl also explores the Jewish tradition as an important source for understanding the Qur'an.

Claiming Abraham by Michael E. Lodahl was published by Baker in May 2010 and is our 44315th best seller. The ISBN for Claiming Abraham is 9781587432392.
