President, Watchman Fellowship, Inc.
When you see someone who is a Muslim, what is the first thing that pops into your mind? Fear that he might be a radical or even a terrorist? Let’s be honest: how many of us see an opportunity to share the Gospel with him or her? Truth be told many Christians might experience both initial reactions to some extent. Some are even in the category of people who feel nothing because they believe that Christians and Muslims worship the same God.
The relationship and conflict between Biblical Christianity and Islam is a unique one; and there is a systematic attempt to blur the lines between Christianity and Islam, the world’s two largest religions. Yes, there are a few similarities, but the theological contradictions trump all else. There is a type of “spiritual paralysis” for some Christians when the subject of Islam comes up.

James K. Walker, president of Watchman Fellowship, takes you through more than a dozen major similarities and differences between the Jesus of the Bible and the Jesus of the Qur’an. You will learn…
how Islam affirms biblical concepts, even though it diverges from Scripture how the Qur’an promotes a deep respect of Jesus, while not identifying Him as a Savior how to cultivate conversational relationships with Muslims, despite your different beliefs and faith backgrounds
James Walker of Watchman Fellowship has written a brand new book contrasting the “Jesus” in the Quran (another Jesus) with the true Jesus of the Bible. He joins us to draw those distinctions and give some practical advice on how we can share the gospel with Muslims and others who wrongly think both religions worship the same God.
