The Muslim Jesus: Sayings and Stories in Islamic Literature

Tarif Khalidi, Author, Tarif Khalidi, Editor Harvard University Press $22.95 (256p) ISBN 978-0-674-00477-1
As a Western religion, Islam gives primacy to the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and considers Jesus to be a holy prophet. In The Muslim Jesus: Sayings and Stories in Islamic Literature, Tarif Khalidi brings together Islamic primary sources about Jesus from the eighth to the 18th centuries. Included are mystical works, historical texts about prophets and saints and, of course, the foundational words about Jesus in the Qur'an. ""As a whole,"" Khalidi explains, these writings ""form the largest body of texts relating to Jesus in any non-Christian literature."" Khalidi pays particular attention to the literary quality of the texts and the role ""the Muslim Jesus"" has played in both Muslim piety and Muslim-Christian relations. ( May)
