In addition, Dr. Isbouts compares a number of narratives that all three traditions have in common, including the stories of Abraham, Joseph and Moses; and in the case of the Qur'an, the narratives about Jesus and his mother, Mary. What's more, this second edition includes over 100 maps, photographs and archaeological objects photographed throughout the Middle East.
"From Moses to Muhammad" has received numerous favorable reviews. Prof. Bruce Chilton ("Rabbi Jesus") wrote, "With sweeping narrative and vivid analysis, Jean-Pierre Isbouts shows that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are rooted in common sources of revelation." NYU's Prof. Francis E. Peters ("The Children of Abraham") calls the book "an exciting and scrupulously fair book," and a "trustworthy guide throughout a perennial minefield." And Rabbi David Rosen said that the book "makes a most important contribution to help overcome negative stereotypes."
