AED 95.00

A pioneering work in the field of Islamic-Christian relations, Jesus of Arabia highlights the connections between the cultural world of Jesus Christ and the Islamic cultural world of the Arabian Gulf. The book takes a look at the bridges between Islam and Christianity and how the two religions mirror each other, despite their differences.

The Reverend Canon Andrew Thompson uses his experience as a priest in the Church of England and his many years living in the Middle East to analyse the often conflicting roles and loyalties concerning family, culture and God. Jesus of Arabia is a timely and incisive work that invites us to consider the contemporary views held of the Middle East and how a figure like Jesus Christ might be received today.
