In the wake of the September 11,2001 attacks, worldwide interest in Islam has reached an unprecedented peak. Thousands convert to Islam each year in the US alone, and sales of the Qur'an are very high.

What do Christians need to know about the Qur'an? Fr. Jacques Jomier has written a scholarly yet readable work on the profound differences between Christian scripture and the Islamic sacred texts, differences that are too often glossed over. Topics include:
Islamic teaching on Jesus and Mary; the universal mission of the Muslim; Jews, Christians and Islamic law. This book is a necessity to understand the highly charged religious elements in the Middle East.

"Jomier contrasts the essential Muslim teachings with the Jewish and Christian understandings of themselves. He is both sympathetic and critical. This is an excellent text in which to understand just what Islam means when it talks of Jewish or Christian sources in the light of its own traditions." James Schall, S.J., Georgetown University "Fr. Jomier's work provides crucial insights into the Qur'an. Readers will find themselves in the enviable position of knowing more about Islam's holy book than many Muslims!" -James Aiken, Catholic Answers

About the Author
Jacques Jomier, O.P., a missionary in the Middle East, gained a unique inside view of the Muslim world. He was among the first to provide commentary on the Qur'an.
