The Trinity Journal
The Trinity Journal is a theological journal published twice each year by the faculty of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Since 1980, the Trinity Journal has served scholarship and the church worldwide by making timely essays and reviews available to libraries, pastors, scholars, missionaries, and interested Christian lay people. Articles deal with classic biblical, historical, and theological issues, many of pastoral importance and most of timeless significance to Christians. Authors are abreast of recent research, yet write not just to fellow scholars but to informed Christians who want to keep their theological basis for ministry fresh and growing.
Christianity and Islam
Questions about relations between Muslims and Christians continue to receive widespread attention in the media and society at large. In particular, the question, “Do Christians and Muslims worship the same God?” has become especially controversial among Christians in the United States. Responses have often been polarizing, with one side insisting the answer must be affirmative and the other vehemently denying this. But the question itself is highly ambiguous and it conflates different issues in an unhelpful manner. Thus, rather than trying to answer directly whether Christians and Muslims worship the same God, it is more helpful to consider similarities and differences in the beliefs of Muslims and Christians, noting both areas of agreement and disagreement.
A collaborative work four TEDS faculty members – Dr. Don Carson, Dean Graham Cole, Dr. Harold Netland, and Dr. Doug Sweeney – “The Message of Islam and the Gospel of Jesus Christ” explores these similarities and differences and provides a concise introduction to an ongoing conversation.
