This text of this book was originally written for a graduate level course in “Comparative Religion - Islam and Christianity” for Nations University (http://www.nationsu.edu) and later developed further into a textbook published by Viademica Publishers in Berlin, Germany (2006). In the first part, it provides an introduction to Islam - its history, central doctrines, culture and institutions, exegesis and interpretation of Islamic religious texts as well as some basic information on the concept of “Jihad”, often falsely translated as “Holy War”. In its second part, it discusses central comparative issues between Islam and Christianity like Deity of Christ, Trinity, and similar topics and Islamic responses to it. Its main purpose is to enable Christians to engage in an informed and intelligent discussion with Moslems in inter religious dialogue and/or making converts to Christianity. Some additional texts in German at the end of this book complement the main material, written originally in English. This material is still being used in a Church of Christ setting to train pastors and teachers in a Master graduate course level. It may also benefit a non-student audience who desire to know more about Islam and what divides Christianity and Islam in terms of doctrine.
