The world's three great monotheistic religions have spent most of their historical careers in conflict or competition with each other. And yet in fact they sprung from the same spiritual roots and have been nurtured in the same historical soil. This book--an extraordinarily comprehensive and approachable comparative introduction to these religions--seeks not so much to demonstrate the truth of this thesis as to illustrate it. Frank Peters, one of the world's foremost experts on the monotheistic faiths, takes Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and after briefly tracing the roots of each, places them side by side to show both their similarities and their differences. Volume I, The Peoples of God, tells the story of the foundation and formation of the three monotheistic communities, of their visible, historical presence. Volume II, The Words and Will of God, is devoted to their inner life, the spirit that animates and regulates them. Peters takes us to where these religions live: their scriptures, laws, institutions, and intentions; how each seeks to worship God and achieve salvation; and how they deal with their own (orthodox and heterodox) and with others (the goyim, the pagans, the infidels). Throughout, he measures--but never judges--one religion against the other. The prose is supple, the method rigorous. This is a remarkably cohesive, informative, and accessible narrative reflecting a lifetime of study by a single recognized authority in all three fields. The Monotheists is a magisterial comparison, for students and general readers as well as scholars, of the parties to one of the most troubling issues of today--the fierce, sometimes productive and often destructive, competition among the world's monotheists, the siblings called Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
The Ten Commandments are the basic rules of morality in the three Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The purpose of these commandments is to guide the believers, their families, and their communities toward God's straight path that guarantees one's happiness and success in this life and the Hereafter. While numerous books were published on the Biblical Ten Commandments, unfortunately, very little is known about the Quranic Ten Commandments, and most people do not even know about their existence. The following is a list of these Quranic commandments as depicted and abbreviated from Surah Al An'Am (6:151-153), and a brief statement on the main topics discussed: 1.Do not associate anything with God: Monotheism, or the Oneness of God, as the foundation of the Islamic creed, God's unique and absolute attributes, and the relationship between man and his creator. 2.Be good to your parents: The many aspects of goodness to our parents, dealing with misguided parents, and the problem of parents abused by their own children. 3.Do not kill your children because of poverty: Islamic view on abortion and infanticide in ancient and modern times 4.Do not even come near shameful deeds: The causes and consequences of committing shameful deeds i.e. adultery, fornication, incest, and homosexuality. 5.Do not kill any human soul, except for a just cause: Human life is sacred and must be protected; Islamic view on the termination of human life for committing adultery, apostasy, highway robbery, murder, killing in a just war, suicide, euthanasia, and honor killing. 6.Do not touch the orphan's property, except to improve it: Islam stance on the treatment and legal ruling to protect and support orphans, the weakest elements of the society 7.Give full measure and full weight with equity: Islamic moral values in commercial dealings 8.Speak justly even it concerns a close relative: Islam moral values in achieving justice 9.Fulfill any covenants you made in God's name: Islam moral values in fulfilling commitments and pledges 10.Follow God's straight path, and do not follow other paths: Continuously assess your place on God's straight path, implement improvement plans, and monitor progress Filling a gap in current literature, Dr. Naguib presents the first detailed study in English on each Quranic commandment and its related moral issues in ancient and modern times. The study is prepared in two volumes. The first volume covered an introduction and the first five Quranic Commandments as listed above. The full meaning of each commandment is shown by finding the entire Quran's teachings on that subject, as well as the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions. With extensive research and careful selection of Quranic verses and reliable sources of Prophet Muhammad's traditions, this book will be beneficial to students and teachers of schools and academic institutions, religions comparative studies, Quranic study groups, interfaith group dialogues, as well as any Muslim or non-Muslim who is asking: "Is there anything in the Quran similar to the Ten Commandments in the Bible?.
The Ten Commandments are good, basic and moral laws that will help keep us out of problem with ourselves, family, friends, and neighbors. God knows what is the best for all of us and He simply wants all of us to stay out of problem in order that we may be able to live in peace and harmony with one another. Islam is one of the three Abrahamic faiths beside Judaism and Christianity. Many of the teachings such as worshiping only one God (Monotheism) is similar to other religion such as Judaism and Christianity. It is the religion of Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus, Muhammad (Sm) and all the other messengers mentioned or not mentioned in the Quran, the Muslim's scripture. Islam does accept the status of both Moses and Jesus as prophets, which means that the Commandments are not completely ignored. If we take a look at Ten Commandments of God estimated in Exodus 20. There are many commandments that reapplied in the Quran. There are certain ayats (verses) in the Quran which include ten important commandments given by Allah to mankind, where several command very similar to the Ten Commandments.
Are the Commandments really written in stone? A biblical scholar offers an “engrossing and enlightening guide to one of the world’s great legal codes” (Booklist). In this lively, provocative book, Michael Coogan takes us into the ancient past to examine the Ten Commandments, also known as the Decalogue. How, among all the laws reportedly given on Mount Sinai, did the Ten Commandments become the Ten Commandments? When did that happen? There are several versions of the Decalogue in the Old Testament, so how have different groups determined which is the most authoritative? Why were different versions created? Coogan discusses the meanings the Ten Commandments had for audiences in biblical times and observes that the form of the ten proscriptions and prohibitions was not fixed—as one would expect since they were purported to have come directly from God—nor were the Commandments always strictly observed. In later times as well, Jews and especially Christians ignored and even rejected some of the prohibitions, although the New Testament clearly acknowledges the special status of the Ten Commandments. Today it is plain that some of the values enshrined in the Decalogue are no longer defensible, such as the ownership of slaves and the labeling of women as men’s property. Yet in line with biblical precedents, the author concludes that while a literal observance of the Ten Commandments is misguided, some of their underlying ideals remain valid in a modern context.
Examines issues surrounding the place of the Ten Commandments in American society and their application in secular law, covering such issues as the separation of church and state, capital punishment, and prayer in public schools.
In 1938 the Reverend Henry H. Riggs wrote "Shall We Try Unbeaten Paths in Working for Moslems?" He encouraged the church to help Muslim converts remain inside Islam so that they might not lose their cultural identity. These ideas were soundly denounced by leading missionary scholars of the time: Samuel Zwemer, J. Christy Wilson, and Hendrik Kraemer. In the 1980s Riggs's suggestions bubbled up to the surface with new life in Bangladesh, but the proponents of these views--known as the insider movements (IM)--maintained a low profile. The church did not know what was taking place in Bangladesh until the 1990s when anonymous authors published papers with made-up locations reporting hundreds of thousands of new believers. Today, proponents of IM support their observations of what God is doing among Muslims with eight biblical passages. If the biblical support is real, it behooves you to support missionaries who advocate for IM; but if the biblical evidence is absent, you will have a difficult decision to make. The purpose of this book is help clarify the insider movements' claims and paradigm by simply examining the Scriptures.
