Overview

Jesus or Muhammad: A Question of Assurance

Two people have radically influenced the world: Jesus and Muhammad. One name invokes some people to love their enemies. The other name invokes some people to hate those who insult that name. However, movements in the West with varying agendas, infatuated with words like "co-exist," "tolerance," and "inclusivism," shove all the key differences between faiths under a rug without any discussion over them. Yet History and Experience tell us that it is good to freely talk about differences in order to understand each other's faith.

Steven Masood examines how followers of Jesus and followers of Muhammad use different dictionaries for the definition of peace, love, grace, and mercy. He delves into the Bible and the Qur'an, investigating how both present the creation and the patriarchs. While the Bible stops with Jesus and his disciples, the Qur'an brings Muhammad on the scene.

Masood deals sensitively with questions like:

• Is the Qur'an the continuation of the Bible?
• Did Jesus promise the coming of Muhammad?
• Is Jesus or Muhammad the "final messenger" with the authority of assurance from God?
• What guidance was promised to Adam, to restore him and his progeny to God?
• If Jews, Christians, and Muslims believe in the same God, why the different messages?

This book contains interesting information concerning what makes both Jesus and Muhammad so special to those who follow what they said. The author briefly outlines the history of the Jewish people and their Scriptures, which is vital since Jesus is Jewish. He also delves a bit into the history of Muhammad and Arab-Jewish relations in Arabia. I like this book because it helps me to understand better why Christians do not consider Muhammad to be the Final Messenger, but rather believe the Holy Spirit continues to give revelations from God to people and bring those who call on Jesus to Him. I also appreciate the study concerning whose teachings lead to assurance of eternal salvation: Jesus' or Muhammad's.
