Finally, the truth...about Jesus and Muhammad This provocative book presents a factual analysis of the two most influential men of all time-Jesus, the founder of Christianity, with 2 billion adherents, and Muhammad, the founder of Islam, with 1.3 billion followers.

You will discover that both were prophesied over as children, endorsed by their cousins, rejected by their hometowns, and assisted by twelve disciples. With an understanding of their biographies, you are prepared to compare their teachings, including:
  • How they described themselves

  • The healings and miracles they performed

Meet the Author

After earning a Ph.D. in Islamic history, Mark A. Gabriel became convinced that Muhammad did not speak for God. His search for truth led to the love of Jesus Christ, as well as complete rejection from his family and two attempts against his life by political fundamentalists. Now pursuing a Ph.D. in world religion at a Christian university, he speaks and writes about the true nature of Islam with the non-emotional accuracy of an academician. As a reflection of his new life in Christ, he has chosen a Christian name to replace his Islamic name.

    The Truth is finally here on Islam

    I have read this book twice and the author is fully competent to address the ongoing issues, quarrels of Islam and its teaching. I have work and lived in Saudi Arabia for over seven years and the author has answered many of my questions that my Arab friends refuse to comments on. I have also travel through-out the Middle East and read the Quran. Dr. Gabriel had done an excellent job pointing out the comparison of the Jesus and Muhammed. His argument validate that there is no similarity between Muhammed and the Messiah Jesus Christ. A book you must read for youself!!!

    Informative Book for Everybody

    This book is recommended for everybody that wants to learn true Islamic culture and beliefs. The author is a devout former follower of Mohammad and an academic scholar of Islam at a prestigios Al-Azhar University in Cario. Being able to recite Quran and thousands of Hadith in the original language and having the knowledge of Islamic literatures that are not available in the west, he explains the distinct differences between Christ and Muhammad with an honest and imparitial scholarship. This is a must for all people in any religious faith.
