If both the New Testament and the Qur'an are divine revelations, then the message in both books should be similar. This book explores concepts of morality, ethics, and faith in order to understand the rationale of God's message. It contrasts verses from the New Testament and the Qur'an to illustrate similarities, without minimizing basic differences. Faith based on proper understanding is moderate and useful, in contrast to faith based on blind devotion and strict interpretation that may lead to wrong conclusions and can be harmful. The basic concepts in the four Gospels are explored and contrasted to the Qur'an. Acts and letters are also discussed and similarities, and differences between the Qur'an and the New Testament is brought in focus. Qur'anic verses must be understood in historical context, and as a total message, since verses complete and complement other verses. This way we can understand that the relationships between Muslims and non-Muslims in the Qur'an is based on kindness and justice and talking to each other in a good way and working together to make life better for everyone. There are many misconceptions about the Qur'an, and this book clarifies that Muslims do not hate non-Muslims and that Islam is compatible with a Western pleural society.
