One of the Two Messiahs is Jesus, the other is Isa, the Prophet of Islam. One is the true Messiah, the Son of God, divine in nature, the other, a man and servant of his god. This makes for some very interesting dialogue. The reader will be intrigued to discover their identities according to each religion (Christianity and Islam), but more importantly the significant differences which can be life changing.
Written by Biola University Professor and author, Jeff Morton reflects and reveals the truth about who Jesus the Messiah is. Two world religions cross paths as the author desires to minister to Muslims and Christians alike in this very different and unique way.
The author has woven together a wonderful story that teaches Christians about Islam and reveals to Muslims why Jesus of Nazareth is the true Son of God sent to bring salvation to the world. The author shines light on the darkness, confusions and lack of both knowledge and understanding for the reader. This book is very relevant for today with world tensions rising in the middle east.
