Summary
When Reza Aslan’s bestseller Zealot came out in 2013, there was criticism that he hadn’t addressed his Muslim faith while writing the origin story of Christianity. In fact, Ross Douthat of The New York Times wrote that “if Aslan had actually written in defense of the Islamic view of Jesus, that would have been something provocative and new.” Mustafa Akyol’s The Islamic Jesus is that book. The Islamic Jesus reveals startling new truths about Islam in the context of the first Jews and the early origins of modern-day Christianity. Both Islam and the first Christians—the Jewish followers of Jesus—didn’t see Jesus as divine but rather as a prophet, and both groups believe that salvation comes directly from good works, and not directly from God. What Akyol seeks to reveal in The Islamic Jesus is how these core beliefs of Judaism emerged in a new religion born in the 7th century: Islam. In a time when Islam is a topic of heated conversation in the Western world, Akyol proposes to explore and expose this extraordinary historical connection between Judaism and Islam—a major mystery largely unexplored by academia. From Jesus’ followers to the Nazarenes and Ebionites to the Qu’ran’s discussion of the life of Jesus, The Islamic Jesus will reveal similarities between religions that today seem so opposite in an effort to explain the Islamic view of Jesus to Western readers
