In this piece, I hope to clarify some confusion about the discontinuity between Christianity and other religions and try to highlight some ways that Reformed Christians think about this.
More and more, people of other faith traditions are settling in Canada and the United States and becoming our neighbours. As we navigate a changing world and society, we are seeking to integrate witness and dialogue—but how do we best approach interfaith dialogue?
"Word became Book" or "Word became Flesh" are two very important ideas. Both Islam and Christianity speak of something or someone "coming down." We will look at these and compare and contrast them.
Two words, no longer than seven letters long, tell all about Christianity and Islam. Keith Small and Andy Bannister in lectures at BeThinking.org help their audience to see the practical consequences of either the doctrine of Tawhid or the Trinity.
In this short piece, with the help of the scholar Marylyn Waldman, we will look at the story of Joseph in the Bible and the Qur’an to learn how, in spite of a few similarities, the stories are miles apart. Why is this?
With the rise of anti-Muslim bigotry and hate crimes in the U.S., coverage of events like this — where Jews, Christians, and Muslims gather to talk about how they can work together to seek peace — is critically important.
Moderns of the 21st century look at heresy as some kind of outdated and judgmental stance, but as we will show, this idea has consequences among Christian missionaries.
At a recent conference, one of the attendees reported on a trip to a local mosque. There the imam told the group, “As Muslims, we agree with 90% of what you Christians believe, except for the 10% part about who Jesus is.” Is this imam telling the truth?

In an interview concerning his latest book, Answering Jihad, Nabeel Qureshi (a convert to Christianity), details the change of his own thinking from being convinced that his religion was a religion of peace, to thinking otherwise.
Someone said, "Jesus loves everyone and so there are no lost people." Another person said, "I work with members of [name of religion] and they are among some of the nicest people that I know. How dare you say they are in darkness?" What do we do with such statements?
On November 13, ISIS released a statement, celebrating their "holy war" or jihad against France who they call a "Crusader nation." In a very ironic fashion, the statement is a back-handed challenge to the Church as well.
