Three Testaments

Torah, Gospel, and Quran

Edited by Brian Arthur Brown - Foreword by Amir Hussain - Contributions by Laleh Bakhtiar; Marc Zvi Brettler; David Bruce; Henry Carrigan; Ellen Frankel and Nevin Reda

From disagreement over an Islamic Center in New York to clashes between Christians and Muslims in Egypt, tension between the three Abrahamic faiths often runs high. Yet for all their differences, these three traditions—Judaism, Islam, and Christianity—share much in common. Three Testaments brings together for the first time the text of the Torah, the New Testament, and the Quran, so that readers can explore for themselves the connections, as well as the points of departure, between the three faiths.

Notable religion scholars provide accessible introductions to each tradition, and commentary from editor Brian Arthur Brown explores how the three faiths may draw similarities from the ancient Zoroastrian tradition. This powerful book provides a much-needed interfaith perspective on key sacred texts.
