Who is Allah? What makes Him unique? And what does He ask of his followers? In the spirit of his Pulitzer Prize-winning God: A Biography, Jack Miles offers a masterful portrait of the God of Islam, the world’s second largest, fastest-growing, and perhaps most tragically misunderstood religion.
Miles depicts a character less mercurial than Yahweh, less ready to forgive than Christ, and yet emphatically part of their traditions. The God of the Qur’an revises, perfects, and makes whole what had been corrupted or lost from the practices and scriptures of the earlier Abrahamic religions.
Setting passages from the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, and the Qur'an side by side, Miles casts a new and much-needed light on the heart of Islam.
