The story of Christmas—familiar and heart-warming, a story of hope and peace encapsulated by the birth of the infant Jesus—is also a story that unites two faiths often at odds with one another. Luke and Matthew’s accounts of the Nativity in the Bible find their detailed parallels in Surah 19 and Surah 3 of the Qur’an.
From this starting point, Karl-Josef Kuschel begins to look for Christmas in the Qur’an; a challenge for both Christians and Muslims to engage in a deeper dialogue about the fundamental questions of their faiths. By going back to the word, this detailed analysis of the original texts in both the New Testament and the Qur’an provides a revealing—and timely—new perspective for interreligious dialogue.
