Review: Is the Father of Jesus the God of MuhammAd?

Timothy George, the founding dean of Beeson Divinity School and an executive editor of Christianity Today, has written a helpful book: “Is the Father of Jesus the God of Muhammad?”

Ever since the September 11th terrorist attack on Americans, American Christians have experienced a heightened awareness of the presence and practices of the religion of Islam.

I work in an industry with some of the most overworked, underpaid and underappreciated employees in the world. In fact, I don’t receive a paycheck at all, and my best efforts are often met with complaints and criticism, rather than praise. Some people actually question whether or not I work at all, or whether or not my “so-called work” has value.
