Overview


Until recent times Islam’s holy book has not been widely accessible to the Christian world, and consequently teachings about Jesus have received little attention. In Jesus in the Qur’an, written for both Christians and Muslims, for specialists as well as general readers, Parrinder offers a study of Qur’anic teachings about the birth, life, work, death and resurrection of Jesus. Parrinder explores all ninety-three verses in the Qur’an in which Jesus is mentioned, setting them in the context of the work as a whole and drawing parallels with the Christian gospels, wherever possible.

A very good book to compare the differences and similarities between the two religions. Also offers very good explanations for the key differences between them. All the pertinent verses relating to Jesus are enumerated and the key ones explained very elucidatingly.
