This book is a bit of a tough pill to swallow for the Christian reader. Though I wonder how it is for a Muslim in the western world to grapple with the stagmatism and abundant misunderstandings about thier religion. That musing aside, the book is well researched and highly engaging, regardelss of one's personal religious beliefs. The author takes a look at the commonalities between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Although the author does take a close look at the scriptual basis for ...more

I really think this book is a piece of art, research well done by the author, and all the points he make are connecting perfectly.
when you read this book keep your bible next to you just to be sure he's not making things up.
this book compares the three Abrahamic religions and explains some of the contradictions.
I recommend this book for everyone that believes in God and want to be sure about the right faith and the true God.

The casual writing style made the book a little easier to read through. I don't feel people should get offended by anything Brown wrote because he proves his point with MANY quotes and citations. Citing the MANY different sources was impressive and goes to show how much work the author put into researching this topic.

In addition, I liked how Brown introduced the next chapter's topic perfectly in the end of the previous one. One part that I loved in particular was a list (starting on pg. 149) of

It went into a lot of detail about everything. Well researched. I think it is capable of acting as an intellectual proof for the validity of Islam and a proof against Christianity and Judaism.

I have mixed feelings on this book, as both someone who was raised and educated thoroughly as a Christian and who has studied comparative religions in a formal, academic setting. While the entire book is well researched and most of the arguments hold water, I noticed quite a few "facts" that either were blatantly wrong, and parts of the writing style that just did not sit well with me.

There were multiple instances of circular reasoning, and nearly the entire premise of the book is a bit disconce

This book was intimidating but the way it was written wasn't boring. It was pretty cool and had lots of insights into religions and their histories. Kind of earth-shattering, too, at times. And a little tough to swallow. But I couldn't stop until I was done, so it was good.

Like I said, the topics in this book can be difficult, and I know it was difficult for me, but it was worth it.

One of the best books I've read on comparative religion. The author style of writing is very enjoyable and eye-opening. He approaches sensitive ideas and ask questions without confrontation and in a calm respectful manner.
Looking forward to reading his next book : Goded.

A product of Christian-American ancestry dating back to the year 1677, up until his conversion to Islam in April of 1994, Dr. Brown easily could have passed as an example of a man who lived the stereotypical American dream. A graduate from two Ivy League universities with subspecialty training in ophthalmology, Dr. Brown served as a respected ophthalmologist in the U.S. Air Force for a period of ...more
