Hendrickson Publishers Three Faiths, One God DVD

As seen on Public Television nationwide

A Documentary by Gerald Krell and Meyer Odze

  • Do Jews, Christians and muslims worship the same God?
  • Does the Lord's Prayer appear in the Koran?
  • Do the "five pillars" of Islam have a biblical basis?
  • Do Muslims believe that Jesus died on the cross?
  • How are Jewish law and Islamic law similar?
  • Was Isaac, Ishmael or Jesus God's "beloved son?"
  • How do Muslims view the trinity?
  • How is Ramadan parallel to Yom Kippur and Lent?
  • Do Muslims pray differently from Jews & Christians?
  • Has Islam superceded Judaism and Christianity?
  • What stereotypes does each faith face?

This ground-breaking documentary compares similarities and differences in religious beliefs and practices that Islam has with Christianity and Judaism. It also examines how people of goodwill in the Abrahamic faith communities are coming to terms with historical conflicts that impact their lives today, the crisis of the fundamentalist approach to religious pluralism, and tearing down barriers to understanding and respect.

Every once in a while there's a product on christianbook.com that is not Christian - and this is one of them. Beware! The viewpoint this PBS documentary is that Jews, Muslims and Christians essentially believe the same thing - which is a lie. Christ Jesus took upon Himself the sins of the world - He died for us - and we can be forgiven and born again if we repent of our sins, believe that He is God and that He rose from the dead. Jesus Christ is Lord! Messianic Jews believe this, but Muslims do not believe this, and religious and cultural Jews do not believe this. This DVD focuses on traditions and rituals to deceive its viewers into thinking these religions are all the same. This is simply poor scholarship, with no actual basis in history or theology. Don't be deceived!
