Editorial Reviews of "Islam`s Jesus" :
“Saritoprak holds that Christians, Muslims and Jews have to be able to speak about their central and essential theological truths to have a meaningful dialogue.”—Catholic Register
“In a day when other books, such as Reza Aslan’s Zealot, which also attempts to turn a microscope on to Jesus, have stirred such volatile reactions, Saritoprak sets up his book . . . for non-Muslims and Muslims alike to re-discover the revered central figure of the Christian religion as Jesus is understood in Muslim tradition.”—Middle East Media and Book Reviews Online
“An important book [that] deals with one of the most sensitive issues in Christian-Muslim dialogue.”—Journal of Ecumenical Studies
