The Moslem Christ


American Tract Society 1912

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The Moslem Christ is an essay on the life, character, and teachings of Jesus Christ according to the Qur’an and the Orthodox traditions. Islam is the only of the great non-Christian religions which gives a place to Christ in its book, and yet it is also one of the non-Christian religions which denies His deity. This volume provides a gateway to understanding what Islam teaches about Christ and ends with a chapter on how to preach to Muslims about Christ with this knowledge.

Nicknamed the “Apostle to Islam,” for nearly 40 years Samuel M. Zwemer lived and worked in the Middle East, preaching the Gospel of Jesus and training hundreds of missionaries. Founder and editor of The Moslem World, Zwemer—familiar with the land, language, and people of Islam—provided a window into a growing religion and culture that few Westerners knew. Zwemer’s legacy as one of the finest Christian scholars of Islam is still recognized today.

In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in Arabia: The Cradle of Islam are tagged and appear on mouse-over. What’s more, Scripture references are linked to the wealth of language resources in your Logos library. If you own the English and Arabic Qur’an, you can follow along with Zwemer in his analysis of Islamic doctrine and his studies comparing Islam to Christianity. This makes these texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study.

Praise for the Print Edition

Dr. Zwemer had good qualifications for undertaking this most useful task: a sense of its importance; a thorough knowledge of whatever had been written by any western author on the subject; and a knowledge of Arabic that gave him first-hand access to what Moslem books—the Koran, Hadith, and later legend-spinners—contain thereon.
