Product description


"a fascinating and instructive book...Professor Khalidi has brought together, from a vast range of sources..." -- The Daily Telegraph, 19 December 2001

...the Jesus of Muslim penitential and sententious literature assembled by Khalidi is particularly salutary today. -- Aziz Al-Azmeh, author of Muslim Kingship

A remarkable, eye-opening work of deep scholarship, profound religious understanding, and unprecedentedly rich cross-cultural exchange. -- Edward W. Said, author of Reflections on Exile and Other Essays

The combination of sublime moralist and magician is striking, and so is the virtual exclusion of reference to the Crucifixion. -- Frank Kermode, author of Shakespeare's Language

This scholarly book will help all those who seek to resume a fruitful dialogue between Christianity and Islam... -- Church Times, 2001

[The Muslim Jesus] will enrich the present lively dialogue between the two fraternal faiths. -- Harvey Cox, author of The Secular City and Fire From Heaven
