5.0 out of 5 starsJesus from an Islamic perspectiveSept. 7 2007
By FOX FALL - Published on Amazon.com
Contrary to what most Westerners might believe, the personality of Jesus in Islam is familiar and quite fully developed. He is loved and revered for his "poverty" and detachment from the mundane. The "Sufi" view of Jesus is really the Islamic one, since Sufism is merely Islam practiced from the heart. This collection of stories from various sources presents parables and anecdotes in which Jesus features as the humblest and closest to God of human beings.
