The Genius of Christ
The main portion of this book is a translation of an Arabic work extolling the person and mission of Jesus, whose life and teachings form the foundation of the Christian faith. That its author was a Muslim, and one who wrote several other books in defense of his own faith, may seem strange for Christian readers who know little about Islam. Yet Muslim readers will hardly find this remarkable. In concert with their holy book, the Qur’an, Muslims have consistently regarded Jesus as one of the most esteemed of a long line of prophets. Like most Christians, they believe that he was born of the Virgin Mary, performed many miracles, and most importantly, was called by God to be the bearer of divine revelation to the Jews. This book virtually ignores the Islamic literature about Jesus, and instead draws almost exclusively from the New Testament, especially the four Gospels.
