The Other Prophet

Jesus is considered one of the most important prophets in Islam. In the Qur’an he is called a sign of God, and yet his position in Islam is different from his status in Christianity. The Other Prophet is an unprecedented attempt to investigate the Qur’anic Jesus from both Muslim and Christian perspectives. This book has three principal goals: to chronicle various debates surrounding Jesus in the Qur’an and consider how a detailed analysis might contribute to the productive coexistence of Christians and Muslims today; to demonstrate the great hermeneutic importance of studying Christology for an enhanced understanding of the Qur’an; and, lastly, to show how an examination of the Qur’an for Christians can deepen their faith in Jesus.


In short, "The Other Prophet: Jesus in the Qur'an" by Mouhanad Khorchide and Klaus von Stosch makes an excellent first impression! Happily, the attractive exterior of this "intensive theological analysis of Jesus in the Qur'an" is more than matched by its well-structured, beautifully written, artfully translated contents." —Lucinda Mosher, Journal of Interreligious Studies
