An essential introduction to the influence of Jesus in contemporary Qur’anic teachings
In Jesus in the Qur'an, written for both Christians and Muslims, for specialists as well as general readers, Parrinder offers a study of Qur'anic teachings about the birth, life, work, death and resurrection of Jesus. Parrinder explores all ninety-three verses in the Qur'an in which Jesus is mentioned, setting them in the context of the work as a whole and drawing parallels with the Christian gospels wherever possible.
Geoffrey Parrinder is Professor Emeritus of the Comparative Study of Religions at the University of London. After his ordination as a Methodist Minister, he spent twenty years teaching in West Africa and studying African religions. He has written many highly successful books that have been translated into twelve languages, and has travelled widely, lecturing on the comparative study of religions in Australia, America, India, Japan and at Oxford.
