PREFACE
 Islam and Christianity are the most widespread religions throughoutour world today. The followers of each exceed one billion in number. Both sides strive to gain more and more followers.
 Both religions have been competing for long centuries in different aspects and different arenas. Unfortunately, however, the followers of each religion know only little about the other religion. That is why it has come to my mind the idea that it will be worthy to try to put the two religion together in one book and give the reader a comparative look at both creeds.
 This book gives answers to these questions: 1. Where do Islam and Christianity Stand With regard to authenticity?
2. What is God according to Christianity and what is God according to Islam?
3. How does each religion look at Jesus?
4. What are the basic creeds of each religion?
5. How does worship differ in both religions?
6. What are the ethical differences between Islam and Christianity?

7. What is law in both religions?
 In brief, this book aims at comparing Islam and Christianity concerning seven areas: authenticity, God, Jesus, creeds, worship, ethics, and law. Knowledge is power, as it is always repeated. To know is better than not to know. This comparative knowledge may help the reader in the way he may find convenient to him. This book may change all your life if you read it carefully and objectively with an open mind and an open heart.

CHAPTER 1 AUTHENTICITY
Gospel Writers:
Matthew is Jesus' disciple. But he wrote his gospel in Hebrew, the original of which is lost for ever. What is available is the translation of that lost original. Thus no one can prove that Matthew's gospel of today is identical with what Matthew wrote, because no original is available.
 Mark is not Jesus' disciple. His is Peter's disciple. Thus Mark's gospel cannot be considered as first-hand narration. Mark did not see what Jesus did, nor did he hear what Jesus said. No one can prove the truth of Mark's reporting about Jesus. Jesus than disciples of disciples. Mark is merely a disciple of a disciple.
 Similarly, Luke is not Jesus' disciple. He never saw or heard him. Luke is not even a disciple of disciple. Luke is a disciple of Paul, who was never a disciple of Jesus. How can we accept Luke's reporting if he never saw or heard Jesus? What authentic value do his reports have when they are merely third-hand reports?

 As for the evangelist John, scholars assert that he is not John the disciple of Jesus. The content of the gospel of John and its wording, as analysis tells, cannot be written by John, the disciple of Jesus. Someone wrote it and attributed it to John the disciple to give it more reliability. Scholars confirm that it was written about 97 A.D., i.e., sixty-four years after Jesus' disappearance. John would be at least eighty-four years old by then, assuming that he was only twenty years at Jesus' disappearance.
 Why should John the disciple wait until he was 84 years to writhe the gospel? Why did he wait 64 years to begin his work? This confirms the conclusion that John's gospel was not written b John the disciple.  What we have, in brief, is four strongly- doubted gospels. Matthew's original manuscript is lost for ever and none can prove the authenticity of the present translated version. Mark's gospel cannot be highly trusted because Mark was not a disciple of Jesus and thus he was not a first-hand reporter. The same defect applies to Luke, and even more clearly, because Luke was a disciple of Paul, who was the disciple of Barnaba, who was a disciple of Jesus. Luke's gospel is third-hand reporting. John's gospel is written by an anonymous writer, and not by John the disciple, whose name was simply used as a cover.  In contrast, the Quran is one version. We do not have different versions of the Quran.
 Which do you chose to be God's pure world: the gospel with its four different contradictory versions and
