Christ in Isalm and Christianity
by John Gilchrist
This booklet is a response to Deedat’s booklet “Christ in Islam”, and it is a comparative study of the Christian and Muslim attitudes to the person of Jesus Christ. The author discussed the following points: Mary in the Qur’an and the Bible, the exclusive title given to Jesus, A consideration of the birth of Jesus, Melechisedec-a type of the Christ to come, Jesus-the Eternal Son of the living God and other items.
Did God Appear in the Flesh?
by Iskander Jadeed
Is it possible that God would incarnate and dwell in a human body? The author of this book explains how Jesus was born from Virgin Mary (was made in the likeness of men), lived here on earth (being found in fashion as a man). He got hungry, thirsty, tired of travelling and even slept on a ship. He was humiliated by human beings although in him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. So Jesus was limited in his human nature, yet filled heaven and earth in his divine nature, united with the Father and the Holy Spirit. This is the mystery of his unique character ("No one knows the Son except the Father" - Matthew 11:27)... and this is a great mystery: "Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He appeared in a body" - 1 Timothy 3:16.
This booklet defends the Christian faith by answering the following questions of Muslims: who is God? Is it possible to know God? What are the tangible evidences of the existence of the Trinity? How would Satan tempt Christ-the God? Is it enough to believe in Jesus as a prophet? What are the evidences of the divinity of Christ?
God is one in the Holy Trinity
by Zachariah Butrus
The author explains the following difficult facts in a simplified and generalized way: the all-gathering unity of God in the Holy Trinity, the testimony of the Qur'an for the unity of the Holy Trinity, the names of the Holy Trinity, the counterfeit trinity, and the shining grace.
The Cross in the Gospel and the Qur'an
by Iskander Jadeed

This booklet is a valuable study about the cross in the Gospel and Quran; does the Quran deny it totally while the Gospel confirms it?

Christianity teaches that Christ was crucified to pay the penalty of the humans’ sins, and that God reconciled the sinful human with himself by saving them with the blood of Christ.

Islam, on the other hand, teaches that Isa the son of Miriam was not crucified and that someone took his place while God raised Isa to Him.

The Crucifixion of Christ: A Fact, not Fiction
by John Gilchrist
Was Jesus really crucified? This is a very important question, because Christianity is founded on the crucifixion of Christ and his resurrection. The Bible, which is considered the source of the Christian faith, assures the fact that Jesus died on the cross. It also shows that Jesus never planned any revolution against the government, or even made any attempt to defend himself when he was arrested, as some may assume to raise doubts about the Christian faith.
The Light of the World
by George Ford

"(Jesus) appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them…When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’ The Pharisees challenged him, ‘Here you are, appearing as your own witness; your testimony is not valid.’

Jesus answered, ‘Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going. You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins.’ ‘Who are you?’ they asked. ‘Just what I have been claiming all along,’ Jesus replied. ‘I have much to say in judgment of you. But he who sent me is reliable, and what I have heard from him I tell the world.’ They did not understand that he was telling them about his Father. So Jesus said, ‘When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am the one I claim to be and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.'"

The distinctive characteristic attributes, as such as: sonship, deity and humanity of Christ. In addition to this, the author discusses the doctrine of the Holy Trinity, the oneness of the three persons of the Trinity and a reply to objections.

Was Christ really Crucified?
by Faris Al-Qayrawani

The crucifixion of Christ is a controversial issue between Christians and Muslims. While Christians consider the cross the main doctrine in their faith, Muslims totally deny that Christ was crucified or even that he died in a natural way. Yet Christians insist that Christ died on the cross to cleanse all humans from their sins.

Muslims use verses from the Qur’an to deny the doctrine of salvation and the need of a savior. On the other hand, Christians believe that there is no salvation without the shedding of blood which took its final form on the cross.

This book reviews the main concepts of the Christian faith, such as the divine incarnation in Christ, his crucifixion that gave salvation to many and took away the sin of the world, and his glorious resurrection that gives the sinner the way out of hell and the chance to have eternal life.
