About The Book

Of the many books on Islam, few seek to allay the misperceptions and misconceptions about Islam and Muslims among Christians. Apart from filling this gap, the present work brings into sharper relief the common background of three major world faiths - Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

This book contains four sections: The religious beliefs of Islam explained; the religious duties of Islam explained; answers to some of the questions most frequently asked by non-Muslims about Islam; and Christianity and Islam with focus on the theological differences and concurrence.

This book serves as an introduction to the theology and practice of Islam and attempts to explode some of the false impressions around it.
