This paper compares and contrasts Christianity, Judaism and Islam. It describes the history and geography of the religions, as well as their scriptures. The paper specifically looks at the common history of Judaism and Christianity and then compares their similar cultural conditions with that of Islam which is more removed from the other two.
From the Paper:"Also, the sacred scriptures of Islam, known as the Quran, was originally written in Arabic and almost all Muslims believe that it is "fully authentic only in that language" as contrasted with the Holy Bible which has been translated into hundreds of languages. Much like Christianity, Islam is also considered as a missionary religion in which all followers are meant to spread the good word to humankind. Muslims also believe in all of the books of Allah as found in the Quran which includes the sacred writings of Judaism and Christianity. In conclusion, it is rather surprising to find that all three of these religious beliefs have more in common with each other as compared to their differences, such as the belief in one supreme being/God (monotheistic) and the practice of viewing the sacred books of the Holy Bible and the Quran as practically one of the same with the exception of the language used and the source of their origins."
