The Bible And The Qur'an



Product Description

Fr. Jaques Jomier  -- 

Read by Chris Knufke  with a foreword by Stephen K. Ray

What do Christians need to know about the Qur'an? Today, for the first time in history, there are more Muslims in the world than there are Catholics. Thousands convert to Islam each year in the United States alone and sales of the Qur'an are very high.

In the audio version of this scholarly but readable book by Fr. Jacques Jomier O.P., you’ll discover the profound differences between the Christian Scriptures and the Islamic texts, and what they mean for you.

Essential Understanding
As you listen, you’ll learn the colorful history behind the Qur'an and the essential Muslim understanding of “Muhammad’s universal mission.” You’ll also learn what the Qur'an teaches about the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures.

As Father Jomier contrasts the teachings of Islam with the Jewish and Christian understanding of themselves, you’ll discover for the first time just what Muslims mean when they talk of Jewish or Christian sources in the light of Islamic traditions.

Spiritual and Intellectual Challenge
This remarkable audiobook reveals that the Muslim holy book contains narratives on the lives of some ancient saints and great biblical personages, even Jesus. To the surprise of many, the Qur'an actually speaks highly of the Bible, and even makes appeals to it.

However, the Qur'an also claims that the books of the Bible have been tampered with and Muslims may not read it. Under the scholarly scrutiny of Fr. Jormier, the Qur'an emerges as a powerful work of apologetics that presents a spiritual and intellectual challenge that needs to be understood by today’s Christians more urgently than ever before.

Fascinating and Urgent
The Bible and the Qur'an is an illuminating work by a man who is both a priest and a scholar and has lived in the Islamic world. Here you’ll find the truth about the many areas where Islam and Christianity share common ground and also their radical and irreconcilable differences. A perfect introduction to this fascinating and urgent topic, this book also includes writings from Cardinal Francis Arinze, St. John Paul II, and Ven. Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.
