The Islamic Jesus: How the King of the Jews Became a Prophet of the Muslims

The book is an interesting and well sourced take that in effect argues that the Quran provides a Jewish Christian take on Jesus. It even tosses in a take (without Joseph) of a virgin birth. Jesus gets rather top billing, down to the final days (if a bit more hazy there)! It ends with the author's liberal/reformist take, the "something for everyone" approach fitting rather well there. Some of the details might be open to debate (and weeds a bit tedious), but it's overall rather fascinating. More of all faiths need to know the details here. Well written.
