The Concept of God in Judaic, Christian and Islamic Traditions – Representing the Unrepresentable
“[This work] is a masterful, thought-provoking, and insightful study by Zulfiqar Ali Shah of anthropomorphism in the conceptions of God in the Bible and the Qur’an that will be welcomed by scholars and students and all who are interested in the Abrahamic traditions.” – John Esposito, Professor of Islamic Studies, Georgetown University
“This is an extremely important topic and critical to the understanding of Western faiths and the current crisis of disbelief. Idolatry is the great sin of Judaism and Islam, and yet many of the greatest theologians have missed the idolatry of the very conception of God as mental image.” – Sheikh Hamza Yusuf, Founder, Zaytuna College, California
This monumental study examines issues of anthropomorphism in the three Abrahamic Faiths, as viewed through the texts of the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament and the Qur’an.
