Sam Solomon - Islamic Affairs Advisor
In this book Solomon and Debs draw on Qur'anic scholarship to present a compelling case against this doctrine of 'sameness'.
The characteristics of the God of the Bible are far removed from the Allah presented in the Qur'an. The Lord God of the Bible looks for a loving relationship with humankind whom he created in his image; in full revelation of himself, God became man on earth and dwells by his Holy Spirit in the hearts of all who ask him. It can be politically convenient to hold this view and may appear to promote tolerance. Yet, for true tolerance and effective dialogue, a deeper understanding of one another's religious claims is imperative. Author Sam Solomon, a former Islamic jurist, was born and raised as a Muslim and trained in Sharia law for 15 years before converting to Christianity. He is a senior lecturer and research co-ordinator, a human rights activist and an advisor to British as well as European Parliamentarians. Sam is the Islamic Affairs Advisor to Christian Concern and author of many thought-provoking books and articles on Christian-Muslim relations. Co-author Dr Atif Debs, was also born and raised as a devout Muslim. Upon realising that the "truth" is in Biblical Christianity, he has increasingly dedicated the majority of his time to researching and expounding the contrasting relationship between Islam and Biblical Christianity. He is actively engaged in ministry both at home and internationally, in churches as well as theological and educational establishments. Sam Solomon and Atif Debs draw on Qur'anic scholarship to present a clear and compelling case to reject this false identification of Allah with the God of the Bible. Solomon brings his sharp mind and encyclopaedic knowledge of Islamic sources to bear on an increasingly thorny question. Solomon shows us directly from the primary sources how far this is from any faithful representation of either religion.
Islamic Affairs Advisor to Christian Concern Sam is a Christian convert from Islam and a regular speaker around the world on the subject of Islamic fundamentalism.
