The Choice Islam and Christianity (Volume 1 & 2) By Ahmed deedat
A collection of Shaykh Ahmad Deedats (RA) most popular series of booklets on Islam and Christianity.
Ahmed Deedat , Debator Extraordinaire and founder of the Islamic Propogation Centre in South Africa, this book of Ahmed Deedat's is a collection of his most popular series of booklets on Islam and Christianity. While produced in an excellent low-key reference quality binding on the outside, the insides however retain the customary Deedat attention-grabbing look with bolds and capitals abounding on each page for emphasis. A truly unique book set from an equally one-of-a-kind persona.
This book examines Jesus as a prophet teaching the Unity of God, and the historical collapse of Christianity as it abandoned his teaching. The author sketches the dramatic picture of the original followers of Jesus who affirmed Unity. What emerges is that "Christianity" is the fiction that replaced their truth. A work that covers the Gospel of Barnabas, the Gospel of Hermes, the Shephard, early and later Unitarian Christians, Jesus in the Gospels and in the Qur'an and Hadith. The author clearly shows the idea of Jesus as part of a Trinity was a Greek Pagan idea adopted by early Christian mission-aries to gain converts among the Greek, and did not become a widely accepted Christian doctrine until after the Council of Nicea in 325 A.D.
About Ahmad Deedat:
Sheikh Ahmed Hoosen Deedat passed away on the morning of Monday 8th August 2005. He was a remarkable individual who was responsible for inspiring so many people to become better, confident and strongerMuslims. He had been bedridden since suffering a double stroke in May 1996, and was also left speechless as a result. He endured suffering with patience and gratitude to Allah and whilst in this state, still continued his efforts to further the cause of Islam. His career in the field of Comparative Religion took him across five continents where he engaged in constructive dialogue with the heads of the Protestant world and even the late Pope John Paul II. His fearless courage, aptitude and determination are just some of the many qualities he leaves behind in his legacy. He was 88 years old and is survived by his wife, son and grandchildren. May Allah (swt) bless his soul, accept his efforts for the cause of da'wah, grant patience to his loved ones and reward him with the highest station in Paradise, Al-Firdaws.
