Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: Wrong

The Ten Commandments are very basic laws which no one - who is concerned with any amount of morality - should ever have reason to be offended by. I'm not saying they should be in every book... I don't find them in a Calculus book, for example.

But regardless of this, I am concerned with what the Quran DOES entail. There are far too many contradicting ideas between the text of Islam and the texts of Judaism and Christianity about who God is, who Mohammad is, and what WE are supposed to do with our time here for both sides to be correct/accurate/true.

Now, Judaism and Christianity are an entirely different conversation; however, for all Christians, Jews, and Muslims, I will simply recommend this book: "More Than A Carpenter," by Josh McDowell.

It's very short... about 125 pages, and it expounds on who Jesus was from multiple perspectives according to texts, history, philosophy, etc.

I almost dare you to read it, but I doubt anyone will anyway.

Regards - B
