Promises Fulfilled: Christianity, Islam, and the Bahá'í Faith
An examination of the promises made in both the Bible and the Qur’án concerning the coming of the Promised One.
Promises Fulfilled examines the promises made in both the Bible and the Qur’án concerning the coming of the Promised One, and sheds light on the principal objections that prevent Christians and Muslims from accepting the Bahá'í Faith. The book also discusses some of the verses in the Bible and Qur’án that are the cause of tension between Christians and Muslims. Such verses may appear to differ on the topics of Christ’s crucifixion, His ascension, and the meaning of Sonship.
As Promises Fulfilled demonstrates, however, no contradiction exists between the sacred texts. In addition, this book introduces explanations from the Bahá'í writings that can bridge misunderstandings that have arisen between Muslims and Christians, and demonstrates the shared values between the two religions. Some of the topics covered include the Word of God, the Day of Resurrection and Judgment, salvation, the meaning of life and death, miracles, parables, and the meaning of the phrase “the seal of the Prophets”.
