Listen to any news broadcast today (In the aftermath of September 11,2001) and the message comes through loud and clear: Islam is a religion of violence and behind every Muslim, there lurks a potential terrorist. Islam is a threat to values of the Christian West. They are like oil and water. Clearly, they don’t mix.

 

Oil & Water: Two Faiths One God confronts these popular perceptions head-on. With keen insight and gentle understanding, it explores the differences between Christianity and Islam, as well as the many things these two enduring faith traditions hold in common – including, first and foremost, their belief in and desire to be faithful to the one, true God; their shared roots and scripture (from the Jewish tradition); and the spiritual values of peace and social justice.
