The two faiths hold much in common, tracing their roots back to a common ancestor. And yet they have always held to something of a ghetto mentality. Mutual ignorance is the price paid for trouble-free co-existence, and for some, perhaps, the price for survival. Prejudice and misunderstanding leads to confrontational debate, where one side tries to ridicule, attack and defeat the other. Political correctness and tolerance simply leads to superficial agreement.
Chawkat Moucarry believes that there is a better way. Ever since he surprised the religious Education teacher by asking if he could attend the Islamic class at high school, he has been wholeheartedly committed to genuine Christian Muslim dialogue. His prayer is that this book will help us to gain a better understanding of each other's faith, as well as our own, and above all a better understanding of the founder of that faith.
Commendations"Written by a Syrian Christian, this book is intended to be read by both Christians and Muslims. Moucarry compares the Bible and the Qur'an, the key doctrines of Christianity and Islam, their beliefs about Jesus and Muhammad and their attitude to the Arab-Israeli conflict. ... provides a helpful analysis of Islamic belief." (LICC magazine
"This is a book about Islam and one I can recommend enthusiastically. If you are interested in Islam, and you should be, and if you want a sound guide to Islam, and you should, then go out and buy Chawkat's 'Faith to Faith'." Christian Herald
