Divine Perfection: Christianity and Islam on Sin and Salvation

About the book

Divine Perfection is a thorough and captivating presentation of two great world traditions – Christianity and Islam. In seeking to understand the issues surrounding Divine perfection, sin and salvation, Dr. Osman Latiff looks back in history and unearths the roots of their differences, centred on what the book terms ‘The Adamic conundrum’. The author exposes and corrects numerous objections made by Christian missionaries and apologists, and compassionately reaches out to Christians to take a closer look at their own tradition and that of Islam, boldly confronting centuries of worn-out misrepresentations.

Provocative and thought-provoking, insightful and inspiring, Divine Perfection incorporates clear and accessible analysis of Christian and Islamic theology and philosophical ideas, and documents the scriptural evidence that shines a radiant light on the perfect justice, mercy and love of Allah.
