Muslim & Christian Customer Reviews

I was always wondering about the best way to build bridges with Christians and the best way to help them know what the Qur'an says, the way I understand it, a book of peace. Finally this book gives me both of my wishes. It represent the Qur'an in a simple way that is easy to understand and it shows the common ground both Christianity and Islam have. I invite everyone interested to learn more about both Islam and Christianity to read it.

Customer Review - Muhammad 

I had been seeing a lot of references to this book through friends on the Facebook. I finally decided to purchase the book. First, the translation of the Quran is excellent. It is easily understood and the language flows beautifully. Also, I was really appreciative of the references to the Bible. It really does mean a lot to me that my Muslim and Jewish brothers and sisters share so many spiritual concepts and principles. In these times when Islam is in the news every day, it is nice to have this book to shed light instead of just generating heat. I highly recommend this book to anybody who wants to seriously learn about Islam and who wants to draw from the gifts of wisdom that the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) has bestowed upon humanity.

Customer Review - Laura

To my extreme satisfaction I have finally come across an indispensable study that not only exhaustively addressed my burning desire but provides for and represents the Qur'an in a simple way that is easy to understand and shows the common ground that both Christianity and Islam have. I highly encourage everyone interested to learn more about the commonality of Islam and Christianity through this publication.

Customer Review - Khalid 

This work, 'The Quran: A Contemporary Understanding' is unique, timely, and essential. It is timely for perhaps obvious reasons: the news is almost daily filled with examples of conflict between the west and the Muslim world, with inflammatory comments, often rooted in stereotype and misinformation, by Christians and Muslims and Jews.

Customer Review - Kevin

This translation can do much to reverse the suspicion, fear, hatred & violence that is escalating in our world by laying a foundation for mutual understanding based on Jesus’ commands to love our neighbors and to love and pray for our enemies.

As an Evangelical Christian, I was deeply interested in understanding the motivation of the Muslim translator, Dr. Safi Kaskas...

“Through research and the blessing of God,” Dr. Kaskas told me he concluded that “the Qur’an can only be properly understood by reading it alongside the Bible in conversation with others, particularly Christians (‘people of the book’).” This conviction led Safi to collaborate with Dr. David Hungerford, an Evangelical leader, to produce this fresh translation.
