To Christians, he is the son of an all-loving and all-powerful god. Finally, for the people of the Islamic faith, Jesus is another prophet ...

1,089 wordsThe five books of Pentateuch (Genesis-Deuteronomy), for example, traditionally are ascribed to Moses. But by the eighteenth century, many European scholars noticed problems with that assumption. Not only does Deuteronomy end with an account of Moses' death (a tough assignment for any writer to describe his or her own demise), but the entire Pentateuch shows anomalies of style that are hard to explain if only one author is involved. By the nineteenth century, most scholars agreed that the Pentate...

Comparing Christianity and Islam:
the world's two largest religions
Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are three closely related religions. Because they all revere Abraham and certain other patriarchs mentioned in the Hebrew Scriptures (the Torah), Christian Scriptures (Old and New Testaments) and Qur'an as their spiritual ancestors, they are sometimes called Abrahamic religions.The Baha'i Faith is sometimes also included in this grouping. Christians generally view it as a new, small, world religion, as do Baha'is. Many Muslims view it as an Islamic heresy.
This section of the website contains essays that give a very brief description of similarities and differences between Christianity and Islam. However it is important to realize that there are many different traditions within Islam and many thousands of different traditions within Christianity. Thus, one can precisely compare and contrast only one Christian tradition with one Islamic tradition. To do that thoroughly would require tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of essays -- a task well beyond the resources of this web site.
