Is your god my god? Is it possible that we all love, pray to, and believe in merely one God? From my extensive experiences with Muslims, I have found them to be some of the kindest, most generous people I have ever met. I remember a day in Pakistan when a lady and I spoke for hours about religion. It was truly enlightening. At the end of our conversation, she stated, “I love your God like my God. We must love the same God!” I cried tears of joy and admiration. Another time, after teaching several women at a university in Yemen, the students came to my apartment before departing to give me flowers as a thank you for honestly talking to and helping each of them. They were all kind, giving, and as curious about my faith as I was about theirs.
My question for a long time has been, “Is the Christian God the same as the Islamic god?” This was one reason for writing this book. Although there are several answers to this question, this book will lead you in a unique direction. While we know both religions share a great deal of common ground, there are also some differences in worldviews. Actually, Christianity and Islam are perhaps two of the most closely linked religions that ever existed. They are many times called “Abrahamic cousins.”
God, who is revealed in Christ, leads us to interact with Muslims in a way that echoes the first prayerful intercession in the Bible: the cry of our mutual father Abraham who pleaded, “O that Ishmael might live in your sight” (Gen. 17:18).
May Muslims who interact with those of us who follow Jesus benefit from meeting us; may they gain a deeper understanding of the Father’s heart of our great and loving Creator God. There is no other God than God.

May this truth bring the world closer together in peace.
