Description

Christianity, Islam, and the One True God is an enlightening work of interfaith theology by philosopher and author Steven Colborne.

 

Every person of faith wants to have peace with God. But how can we be sure that our chosen religion, rather than the religion of millions of others, is the right way? This is why interfaith dialogue is a critically important subject and why Steven Colborne was motivated to write this full-length book comparing and contrasting the religions of Christianity and Islam.

 

Colborne is best known as a prolific writer in the philosophical theology genre. As well as having authored more than fifteen books, Colborne also runs the popular and award-winning Perfect Chaos philosophy blog. Colborne has been posting regularly on the blog for over 10 years, and his articles on the blog exploring interfaith matters, written between 2020 and 2022, form the basis of the 40 chapters that comprise Christianity, Islam, and the One True God.

 

Some of the key themes of the book include the following: The nature and attributes of God, the Bible and the Qur'an, the person and nature of Jesus Christ, the concept of the Trinity, New Testament textual criticism, the hadith literature in Islam, the alleged crucifixion of Jesus Christ, religious conflict, the day of judgement, divine justice, and philosophical reflections on many other related subjects.

 

Despite the fact that Judaism isn't mentioned in the book's title, many of the articles that comprise the book are relevant to Jewish theology. The book will appeal to adherents of all three of the major Abrahamic religions, as well as to people from any other faith background.

 

Colborne's provocative 2019 book titled God's Grand Game: Divine Sovereignty and the Cosmic Playground has been read many thousands of times and served to establish Colborne as a leading thinker in the field of contemporary philosophical theology. Christianity, Islam, and the One True God builds upon the deeply insightful and original philosophical perspective presented in God's Grand Game, but it is also a standalone work of profound importance.

 

In an age of widespread scepticism concerning matters of faith, Steven Colborne has produced a groundbreaking book, written in clear and accessible language, that will provoke readers to think deeply and differently about interfaith dialogue and all the fundamental questions surrounding our existence. The book is essential reading for anyone interested in philosophy, religion, or spirituality.

PART ONE

DIVINE SOVEREIGNTY

CHAPTER ONE

THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD

In the course of my faith journey, I often find myself asking people if they believe in God. The answers people give can be quite telling.

I’ve heard many people respond, "I believe in something", which to me suggests an openness to the existence of God without an inclination to use the word ‘God’ or associate themselves with a particular religion. Other people, such as those in the Law of Attraction movement, tend to say they believe that ‘the universe‘ is what brings them good or bad fortune, rather than a personal God who is directing all activity in creation.

In my discussions with Christians, when conversation turns to the subject of the existence of God — and I tell them I believe in God — they sometimes respond by asking me, Ah, but which God? The motivation behind their question is that they believe only Christians worship the true God, which many of them say is the triune God of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The way I describe my personal understanding of God is to simply argue that in reality there is only one God, the God who has created all things. I believe in the unity of God, that God is omnipresent and that His being pervades all things. God is the self-existing, all-sufficient one, and everything that has been created was brought into being by Him. He has created every religion, every belief system, every plant and every animal, every planet and every star, and He has existed from eternity past and will exist eternally into the future. He has all knowledge and all power and is in control of everything that happens.

The best way to get to know the One True God is to explore the teachings of the messengers He has sent to every community. According to the Qur’an, no community faces the judgement of God before a messenger has been sent to give warning, and to make clear the way in which we can please God and obey Him. But no one will follow God unless He wills them to — God is sovereign over the unfolding of all events. God guides whoever He wills to guide, and leaves to stray whoever He wills to
