Written for both Christians and Muslims, for specialists as well as general readers, this book offers a study of Qur'anic teachings about the birth, life, work, death and resurrection of Jesus. Parrinder explores all ninety-three verses in the Qur'an in which Jesus is mentioned, setting them in the context of the work as a whole and drawing parallels with the Christian gospels, wherever possible.
"A really excellent and objective survey" The Guardian
"His tactfulness of approach is matched by his search for objectivity." Times Literary Supplement
Geoffrey Parrinder was formerly professor in the comparative study of religions at King's College London and a prolific writer, most importantly on African religions.
