Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by Tiffany (United States), Nov 2, 2006 at 13:44

I am so grateful to find an intelligent conversation about Islam & Christianity. A number of the posts mention that Allah is the only God and yet the Prophet refers to a number of Old and New Testament characters such as Abraham, Moses, Jesus.

Does Islam consider the Bible the inspired word of Allah? Why did the one true Creator God rename himself? There are a number of names for God in the Old Testament. Do any of them match up with "Allah"?
