Passages are presented in the order that they occur rather than being arranged in any artificial, chronological order. Selections from Thalabi’s Stories of the Prophets and one passage from Abu al Fida’s Universal History are included as well. After laying out the passages about Jesus, Robson adds traditional stories and then begins addressing the sayings of Jesus. These are arranged according to moral and religious, ascetic, and sayings that come from God to Jesus. This brief study ends with stories connected with Jesus in Islam. Students of the history of Christian-Islamic relations will enjoy this period piece on the subject.
