God, Prophets, Books, Spirits, Predestination (Islamic fatalism), Eschatology (final times) – six words that the Christian will recognize.
Unfortunately a tragedy when the most serious researcher realizes that this is where most theological similarities are misinterpreted. The words may be the same, but the concepts and deep spiritual truths within these concepts are very different.
