Overview

From the national best-selling authors of Unveiling Islam

For the world's one billion Muslims, Jesus is a prophet. A highly respected prophet, but one of many throughout history. For Christians, Jesus is more than a prophet. He alone is God incarnate, Lord and Savior. And therein lies the most profound difference between the two faiths.

Based upon the authors' extensive dialogues and debates with skeptical, angry, and interested Muslims; liberal Christians; and mainstream journalists, More than a Prophet answers one hundred and fifty of the most common objections to Jesus and the Christian faith. Raised Sunni Muslim and now professors of Christian history and theology, the Caner brothers provide a unique perspective in presenting the biblical Jesus to follower of Muhammed.

Sympathetic to Muslim concerns yet uncompromising in its portrayal of historic Christian truth, More than a Prophet is an indispensable handbook for Christians who want to share their faith with sensitivity and intellectual honesty, and is a helpful introductory resource for those seeking to understand Jesus.

Emir Fethi Caner (Ph.D., University of Texas at Arlington) is currently Assistant Professor of Church History and Anabaptist Studies at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. Ergun Mehmet Caner (Th.D., University of South Africa) is currently Professor of Theology and Church History at Criswell College, Dallas, Texas. During their years as pastors and now as professors, Ergun and Emir have lectured on apologetics, world religions, and theology across the world and have been interviewed on NPR, CNN, The 700 Club, Billy Graham’s Decision Today Radio, and the BBC, among many others.

The Christian Librarian
More than a Prophet is clearly written and interesting to read. The organizational structure, set around specific questions, makes it useful for accessing specific information. The specific approach, addressing aspects of Christian faith in light of questions and concerns Muslims have, is a fresh and helpful one. This book is recommended for all academic libraries.
