5.0 out of 5 stars Interest read 3 April 2008
By gnostic
Format:Hardcover
This is an extremely interesting read. Here we have the Muslim understanding of Jesus (upon him peace). He is revered as a Prophet of God without assigning divinity to him because Muslims belief divinity is for God alone.

It contains accounts of Jesuss' (upon him peace) childhood with some eyeopening accounts and stories of miracles. Also there are sections about how Christanity was changed from its monetheistic roots.

Its well worth purchasing with the advice that the updated version with Ahmed thomsons' additions is better because some information is a little dated. Read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Big impact! 28 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I had first heard of the Council of Nicea, in which belief in the Trinity was made Church doctrine, from a (former) Rome-trained priest in Catholic school. This book goes into much more detail, and is an easy read. All history is fascinating, but the history of religion is especially important. After all, religion is supposed to be the guiding force in the life of the adherent. The author really did his homework, and anyone who wishes to deny that just has to get some of the books mentioned in the bibliography. A good book for anyone interested in Jesus, even if they skipped over references to him in the Qur'an.

5.0 out of 5 stars academic excellence and well researched 19 May 2000
By garry stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
after many years of studying christianity, i feel that this book is very accurate and well researched. it is in agreement with nearly all aspects of christian academia and basically sums up the evolution of christianity using well documented facts and easy to follow explanations. as a person who has spent a considerable amount of time in the field of christian and islamic study, i must say that the author has summed so many years of my research in this excellent book. i recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning basic facts about the evolution of christianity and how it affected those who came in contact with it. jazakam Allahu khair brother rahim for your dedication.

4.0 out of 5 stars good historical information regarding Unitarian Christianity 22 May 2003
By Haseeb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I put a lot of care in to my last edit of this review yet it didn't get posted for some strange reason. I will try my best to replicate what I did in the last edit and hope it gets posted this time.
This book consists of 10 chapters which are mostly historical.
Chapter 1, "The Unitarian View and Christianity" argues that based on historical proof that Christianity was from its beginning just as monotheistic as Islam and Judaism. It also gets into how the belief in trinity was merely based on a historical decision in 325 A.D.
"A Historical Account of Jesus" is the title of the second chapter which gets into what Jesus actually looked like and anything else of interest that has been written about him. The chapter quotes The Bible, The Qur'aan and some Hadith.
The next chapter which is on "The Gospel of Barnabas" is a short survey on this Gospel which is said to be the only surviving Gospel written by a disciple of Jesus. Since the Gospel of Banabas contradicts The Qur'aan, I find it a little bit puzzling as to why so many Muslims try to use it in their arguments.
Another book of interest like the Gospel of Banabas is called "The Shepherd of Hermas" which is the topic of Chapter 4. The Shepherd was written between 88 and 97 AD and because of its affirmation of Divine Unity as opposed to trinity, all copies were ordered to be destroyed after the Council of Nicea in 325 AD.
Chapter 5 discusses "Barnabas and the Early Christians". This chapter quotes The Bible extensively and talks about how the earliest followers of Jesus and Barnabas were not much different.
The next chapter titled "Early Unitarians in Christianity" is a compilation of short bios of the earliest Unitarians from 130 A.D. to 336 A.D.
Chapter 7 ("Later Unitarians in Christianity") is in the same format as the previous chapter except that the bios are of Unitarians from 1511 - 1842.
"Christianity Today" basically discusses how destorted the Christianity has become today since the 325 A.D Council of Nicea.
Chapter 8 simply quotes various verses from The Qur'aan were Jesus is mentioned.
The last chapter is called Jesus in Hadith and Muslim traditions, yet not everything in this chapter is from authentic Muslim sources. Although not all of the Hadith mentioned may be strong, some of them are quite interesting and teach valuable lessons.

5.0 out of 5 stars A walk through religious history, facinating 30 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Get the new edition which includes information by Ahmad Thompson (Yellow cover book).
A very interesting book that walks you through religious history and keeps the reader mesmerized at every step. It traces the life of Jesus, his followers, his message and at the end using history relates it back to verses in the Quran. It's amazing how well the puzzle fits! Anyone who wants to know more about Jesus should attempt to trace the historic Jesus and will find history is not what we are taught today. In fact it has systematically been surpressed. So many have been tortured giving up their lives to uphold what they believed was true. No one wants to mention these facts today.
I encourage you to read "The Bible The Quran and Science" by Maurice Bucaille before reading this book. It really helps put the history described here in much better perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book 8 Jan 2000
By K. Azam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is one of the best books I've read on the history of christianity and the evolution of biblical literature. It refers extensively to scholarly research and is fairly unbiased with regard to the history of early christianity, contrary to the suggestion one might get by the title of the book. It could have been better titled as the History of Unitarian Christianity had it not been for the last chapter which quotes references to Jesus from the Islamic Literature. The Book is a must read for all Christians and Muslims alike to uncover the mysterious shroud surrounding the Life of Christ and the history of Christianity.
