This is not just a candid and thought-provoking review of major topics in both the Bible and the
Quran, but also a much-needed corrective.

The Three Abrahamic Testaments is a unique contribution to interfaith understanding. This book
will become a primary tool for interfaith understanding through scriptural reasoning and
the comparative study of religious text.
Rabbi Firestone. Prof. of Medieval Judaism and Islam, Hebrew Union College, Los Angeles
Open your heart – open your mind – open this book. The Three Abraham Testaments is a college textbook and bestseller rolled into one. Use it like a coffee table book. Start on any page, savor a kernel and set aside the rest for later. Or read until you are so moved that you must pause to digest. The scriptural references and wisdom quotes are stand-alone gems. The ‘Time to Ponder’ and ‘Discussion Points for Dialogue and Healing’ provide ready-made talking points for book groups, classroom settings and conversations over the dinner table.

Dr. Naqvi has created another well presented overview of the Abrahamic traditions by exposing us to a greater view of the Qu’ran and the Islamic tradition.
Rev. William McGarvey, Executive Director, Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County, California
It is more than refreshing to probe a book that does not neutralize or sensationalize the difference found in the Abrahamic religious traditions. The Three Abrahamic Testaments is an important contribution to interfaith dialogue and understanding. It provides an inspiring model for how that dialogue might be engaged in a way that is both informative and healing.
Rev. Thomas P. Bonacci, C.P., Co-founder of The Interfaith Peace Project of Northern California
Once again, Dr. Naqvi separates facts from fiction in this systematic review of the Abrahamic scriptures. As self-interested forces threaten to divide us based on faith, his book is a timely corrective. It debunks the easy accusations that would incriminate religious teachings in the spread of prejudice and hate.
