Christianity & Islam - Peace & Humanity - Never has there been more need for Jews, Christians and Muslims to reexamine their own roots and to trace again the common threads which unite them.

They are all children of Abraham, whether physically or spiritually. They are all people of the book. They are all followers of the One God. Judaism, Islam and Christianity are collectively known as "Abrahamic religions" because they trace their history to the covenant God made with Abraham.

This site compares various issues in Christianity and Islam. The resources are mainly the Bible and the Quran. Our goal is to foster understanding between Christians and Muslims.


A Muslim And A Christian In Dialogue
Badru D. Kateregga and David W. Shenk

In their book, Shenk and Kateregga write:

"Christians and Muslims worship the same God. Both give witness that there is One true and only God, the righteous and transcendent Creator of all things in heaven and earth. Furthermore, Christians accept with thankfulness all ninety-nine names of God that Muslims repeat in worship and praise to God. Even the name Allah is affirmed by Christians as a name of God. The Prophet Abraham knew God as El or Elohim, which is a Hebrew form of the Arabic Allah. <...>

"Nevertheless, within our common faith in God, Muslims and Christians experience differences. These differences are rooted in different understandings of God's relationship to people. The Qur'an stresses the revelation of God's commands and His names to humans. In the Bible we perceive God as the One Who reveals Himself to humankind." (pp. 22-23, written by Shenk, the Christian)

"When Christians and Muslims talk about God, they are talking about the same God, although their witnessing concerning God may be rather different. When they speak of God, Allah, Yahweh, or Elohim, they mean the God Who is the only one, the Creator, the loving, the just, the holy, the merciful, the living and eternal, the wise and knowing. Nevertheless, the Christian witness emphasizes the self-disclosure of God (hence the "Trinity"), while in Islam it is the will and guidance of God which is revealed." (p. 94, written by Kateregga, the Muslim)
