Say, ‘O People of the Book! come to a word equal between us and you — that we worship none but Allah, and that we associate no partner with Him, and that some of us take not others for Lords beside Allah.’ But if they turn away, then say, ‘Bear witness that we have submitted to God.’ (Al Quran 3:65)
Muslim, Christian and Jew: Finding a Path to Peace Our Faiths Can Share
Book by David Liepert
An honest and wholehearted attempt to fulfill a task that is incumbent upon us all, whatever our faith: to . . . make our traditions speak with compassion and respect to our dangerously polarized world. — Karen Armstrong, New York Times bestselling author of A History of God: The 4,000-Year Quest of Judaism, Christianity and Islam
Faith-based conflict and religious violence threaten our world. This timely, carefully researched, and provocative work challenges the stereotypes and misconceptions that fuel these conflicts to answer the question that lies at the nexus of faith, religion, politics, history, and current events: Can those of different faiths live together in peace?
Drawing on personal experience, history, and scripture, Muslim, Christian, and Jew exposes both the differences and similarities between Christianity, Judaism, and Islam and reveals the surprising truth about what they really teach at their core.
Dr. David Liepert, a prominent North American Muslim, recounts his own journey from Christianity to become a convert of Islam and what he learned in the process. Liepert also candidly explores how and why Islam has gone from being a religion that sustained a vibrant multicultural and multireligious civilization to the one we have today. In the end, he offers hope that Muslims, Christians, and Jews can live together in peace and that the happy ending we all crave might be closer than we think.
This important book is a call to peace — not just for Muslims, Christians, and Jews, but for all of us.
