Did you know that Jesus is a prominent figure in Islamic literature? Islam’s Jesus takes a bold look at the highly charged topic of Jesus’s place in Islam, exploring some of the religion’s least understood aspects. Zeki Saritoprak is a scholar of Islamic theology who teaches at an American Catholic university and is heavily engaged in interfaith dialogue. He thoughtfully argues that the shared belief in Jesus presents an excellent opportunity for understanding between Muslims and Christians. Together, they constitute more than half of the world’s population, and such understanding may be a foundation for peace.
