Christianity and Islam are the two largest religions in the world and share a historical traditional connection, with some major theological differences. The two faiths share a common place of origin in the Middle East , and consider themselves to be monotheistic. Christianity is an Abrahamic , monotheistic religion which developed out of Second Temple Judaism in the 1st century CE. It is founded on the life, teachings, death , and resurrection of Jesus Christ , and those who follow it are called Christians. Islam is an Abrahamic , monotheistic religion that developed in the 7th century CE. Islam, which literally means "submission to God", was founded on the teachings of Muhammad as an expression of surrender to the will of God.
In light of the widespread public perception of incompatibility between Islam and Christianity, this book provides a much-needed straightforward comparison of these two great faith traditions from a broad theological perspective. Award-winning scholar John Renard illuminates the similarities as well as the differences between Islam and Christianity through a clear exploration of four major dimensions—historical, creedal, institutional, and ethical and spiritual. Throughout, the book features comparisons between concrete elements such as creedal statements, prayer texts, and writings from major theologians and mystics. It also includes a glossary of technical theological terms. For western readers in particular, this balanced, authoritative work overturns some common stereotypes about Islam, especially those that have emerged in the decade since September 11, Creedal dimensions: faith and the development of theology as a religious discipline 3. Ethical and spiritual dimensions: mapping outward and inward journeys of faith 7.
Analyzing religion isn't just for the pious anymore. Since the World Trade Center towers were blown away in the name of God four years ago, since the journalist Daniel Pearl and numberless others have been murdered by men and women who seem to believe that heaven will reward their actions, Americans have been forced to acknowledge that religious differences kill, even or maybe especially in the 21st century. Some people believe that basic tolerance of others' religions is the answer. Sam Harris, the author of the current best seller "The End of Faith" Norton , recommends abolishing all forms of religion.
Two major theological themes occupy this chapter. First, at the heart of the formation, reception, and history of interpretation of their sacred texts, the Christian and Muslim traditions exhibit several noteworthy similarities as well as important differences. Though both came eventually to revolve around a unique sacred text, the Muslim community grew even as the scripture was being revealed.

Тучный немец, помахавший у него под носом рукой и сказавший на ломаном английском: Проваливай и умри. - С вами все в порядке? - спросила девушка, заметив, что он переменился в лице.
