Glad News! by Samy Tanagho

Product Details

I did not read the description of this book very well when I asked to review it. I was thinking it was a book that was going to explain how to refute Islam and give me a good background for that.

It does that, in a way, but it is geared to be read by a Muslim. Samy does a very good job of incorporating verses from both the Koran and the Bible and showing how Christianity is superior. It was interesting to me to note how much the Koran approves of the Bible and recommends it, even above their own book.

The book is written is a very simple easy-to-understand format. Like I said, it was very different from what I was expecting, but that was my own fault. I found it a little hard to follow because I know virtually nothing about the Koran, so all the references got a little mind-boggling, but I think for a Muslim well-versed in the Koran, Samy did an very good job of taking the concepts apart piece by piece and explaining Christianity.

One advantage that Samy has too is he learned Arabic, so he has been able to read the Koran in the Arabic language and also read the books of the most important Muslim scholars and commentaries would wrote about the Koran and Islam. He has spent 30 years sharing Christ with Muslims and his wife, Hala, often joins him to share her story of being imprisoned for becoming a Christian.

This is a very good book and I would recommend it if you have a Muslim friend with questions about Christianity.

I received this book from Moody Publishers and was not required to write a positive review.
