Item description for One God One Message by P. D. Bramsen...
Overview Since 9-11, many books have been written about Muslims and about how to communicate the Bible's message to them. ONE GOD ONE MESSAGE is not about Muslims; it is for Muslims, but not exclusively so. A Christian reader commented, "This book is not just for Muslims and skeptics. It is for marginal Christians and any who want to know what is true! I have been encouraged, challenged, and changed." Intertwining first-hand stories, vital Scripture passages, and contrastive e-mail excerpts from Muslims, ONE GOD ONE MESSAGE challenges truth-seekers everywhere to consider God's consistent message. The Bible's first four chapters are used as a key for unlocking the ultimate mystery in an enchanting and unhurried journey through the world's all-time best seller. The adventure has three parts: I. JOURNEY PREPARATION: Facing the Obstacles (chapters 1-7) II. THE JOURNEY: Discovering the Mystery (chapters 8-26) III. JOURNEY'S END: Reversing the Curse (chapters 27-30) Quotes from other readers: Premed grad in USA: "The e-mails assure the reader that the author is not shying away from difficult topics and questions; they intrigue, frustrate, and propel the reader from chapter to chapter." Muslim in Middle East: "What can I say? Whew! I'm impressed! I really enjoyed the journey my friend. Don't be discouraged if I failed to come out with the same conclusion as yours." Aspiring journalist in Lebanon: "Starting with Genesis reveals a unity in the Bible's message which is very compelling. The way you describe eternity with God is amazing."

Reviews - What do customers think about One God One Message?
From many people in many places... Jan 23, 2008
The following COMMENTS FROM READERS of ONE GOD ONE MESSAGE provide reasons to read it and ideas for sharing it with others. [taken from website: www.one-god-one-message.com]
"One God One Message is a mine of truth. The writing style is unique; It is full of human interest." - William MacDonald (Author, Believer's Bible Commentary + 82 other books)
"An easy read, very informative and worthwhile." - Tommy Bowden (Clemson University Head Football Coach)
"A 'must read' for anyone serious about sharing what they believe, especially with their Muslim friends... It's not a small book, but the pace is well set... The reader familiar with the Bible will be given the chance to rethink and refresh the way they communicate its truths to unbelieving friends." - Uplook Magazine (Jabe Nicholson, Aug-Sept 2007)
"This book is written with the Muslim in mind but it also provides a sound biblical apologetic for any authentic seeker. New believers studying this book will be supremely enriched and spiritually edified. This deserves a global readership." - Dr. T.V. Thomas (Co-Chair, Int'l Network of S. Asian Diaspora Leaders [INSADL])
"This book takes its place with those rare treatises that come across with singular clarity that one cannot easily forget. It will become a part of my arsenal of recommended reading to our constituents." - Don Darling (Executive Director of Smyrna Ministries International)
Premed grad from South Africa: "ONE GOD ONE MESSAGE is a unique book in that it concisely presents the entire message of the Bible without compromising its integrity. The email messages interspersed throughout the book differentiate this book from other books with a similar topic. Actual, very personal emails from those questioning the authority, authenticity and teachings of the Bible are outstanding. This inclusion gives the book its unique personality and assures the reader that the author is not shying away from difficult topics and questions. These emails intrigue and frustrate, while at the same time piquing and spurring on the readers' interest, propelling them from chapter to chapter."
Muslim in Middle East: "What can I say? Whew! I'm impressed! ... I am really learning..."
Christian in Singapore: "I was born a Muslim and received Christ a few years back. I want to say thank you for ONE GOD ONE MESSAGE. NO BOOK OR NO ONE has ever given me a detailed description of God's plan. And you did it in 400 pages!! Over the years, as I read books and listen to sermons, I never had a brighter enlightenment until I read your book."
Wife & mother in America: "The perfect gift."
From Lebanon: "The style is both practical and pleasant. You have a natural gift for analogies. Though digression is a palpable feature of your book, it is a vital pit stop and you succeed in remaining focused. Many parts of the book eventually come together to form a coherent message. Starting with Genesis reveals a unity in the Bible's message which is very compelling. ... Knowing that God had a plan from the very beginning is very important. ... You wrote 'Satan doesn't want you to have a personal relationship with God.' This gives me goose bumps. ... I never knew what the torn veil meant. The symbolism is beautiful. ... Amid the bazaar of ten-thousand religions you claim there are really only two. You may have a point. ... I read your book twice. I really enjoyed it and found it very helpful. The way you described eternity with God is amazing. I would want to be in Heaven already."
From Pakistan: "The language of "one God one message" is very polite... The book is written in simple, clear English. It is easy to understand by average person. The verses and references taking from the Quran are accurate and correct without any manipulation of word or sentences. ...Thank you once again for sending me such an informative book which clears my mind towards some questions about the non-Muslim religion."
From Washington: "I went into a Starbucks this morning where I had an appointment and saw that the man I had never met before at the table next to me was reading One God One Message. He said that it has been a great blessing in clarifying many different Biblical teachings."
African-American mom: "I have just finished reading "One God One Message"... (The length of time I took to read it was more a reflection on my life with a two year old than on the quality of the book.) I found it to be clear, engaging and easy to read, despite the tremendous scope and complexity of the subject matter. I certainly learned a few things and saw others in a different light. It made me eager to seek out Muslims to befriend..."
Blogger: "I want to share with everybody an amazing book I have just read. It is called `One God One Message.' It takes you through the entire Bible and portrays its message beautifully... It is mainly designed for monotheists, but all are welcome. I dare say that most if not all Christians would benefit from reading this. Also for those of you that believe in a God but are not sure, this book is a haven for you."
E-mail correspondent: "One God One Message deals with all the obstacles in coming to faith and is designed as a 30-day devotional guide."
Teacher: "I've been reading a chapter a day, and chapter 17 is outstanding!!! May we have your permission to make a couple of photocopies of that chapter to share with Muslim friends?"Minister: "I just read the first 7 chapters (Part I)... I think immediately walking a nonbeliever past a buffet of his/her common prejudices and notions about the Bible is a very good way to keep the reader reading."
Professor: "I'm not a person who flatters, nor do I promote just any book, but this book is so solid... I've never seen anyone use the six days of creation to teach about God's character. Excellent! This book gives an entry-level theological education..."
Facilities Engineer: "One God, One Message is incredible the way it explains the various parts of the Bible as a whole. It is so simple, yet so deep. It is book that I believe everyone should read. I plan to tell as many as I can about it, and point them to your websites."
Real Estate Agent: "This book is not just for Muslims and skeptics. It's for all Christians who need to know why they believe what they believe! Reading through it has touched me profoundly. I have been encouraged, challenged and changed. A must-read for marginal Christians."
Kids' Camp Director: "I finished reading One God - One Message. Honestly, I believe this is a very significant book - and we can thank the Lord for that. I appreciated a number of specific things:
1. Scriptures: I greatly enjoyed how you used specific Scriptures throughout the book to provide the backbone of the individual messages. I felt their application was appropriate, accurate, and with wisdom.
2. Organization: I liked the systematic theology - beginning to end - Genesis to Revelation - to convey a complete spiritual journey to Muslims and others.
3. Grace: Your gracious way of speaking and responding to Muslims was noteworthy. Oh that we would all deal with our unbelieving friends in such a manner, especially those that would actively seek our hurt.
4. Clever: I also noted the way you took advantage of what it says in the Qur'an to support the Biblical messages to Muslims. I certainly learned a ton of things about the Qur'an and Muslims.
5. Personal: It was great the way you used personal emails from Muslims as the springboard for many of the individual messages.
6. Intangible: In some mysterious way, I had a sense of drawing closer to the Lord as I read the book. There have been a few Christian books I have read in which I had this sense. You painted some pictures of theological and Biblical principles that I thought were particularly deep. Most of all, I think the pages of this book went a long way to convey the true and deeper heart of God. This was not just a book about facts. I have read many of those. This book reaches to the deeper part of our souls for God to touch.
7. Multifaceted: This book is not just for Muslims, but for any believer who needs to have their faith strengthened and anyone else who is searching for good answers to tough questions. You documented some systematic support for our faith that I have found no where else - what a great service!

A book with a lot of knowledge and experience behind it. Jul 25, 2007
Update: I recommend that you check out the ROCK printing of this book. See my review there for details.
Those that may be intimidated by this book's nearly 400 pages should not be. It is a very enjoyable book to read. The author has really written three books that could all be read individually or as a unit. The author even provides guidance for readers to determine where in the book they should start. The last 33 pages are end notes which provide information on sources for further study.
While the intended audience for this book is Muslims and Christians, it can be used for other religious groups as well. The concepts and challenges that this book addresses are really universal to any people group that wants to understand the message of the Bible.
This book is more than a survey of the Bible and theology. It also provides a great deal of apologetic material as well. The author is not trying to respond to the "ivory tower scholars", but the "man on the street" who is asking genuine questions.
The author has written this book to appeal to Westerners and non-Westerners alike. He does this in a number of ways. In particular, he relies on a lot of tribal and arabic proverbs that reveal nuggets of truth that can be understood by people of any culture.
I wish that this book had been around when I started my ministry to Muslims a couple of years ago. It would have saved me a lot of time and work. Even after Bible College and a couple of years experience, I still found that I had much to learn from this book.
I recommend this book for those that want to learn more about the Bible's message or who want to learn how to teach the Bible. I also recommend this to those that need an apologetic resource to meet the challenges presented to them by various religious and cultic groups.
A Fantastic Book For Both Muslims And Christians Alike May 27, 2007
The book is an absolutely beautiful explanation of the Christian World-View and Message as it was passed on to us via Jesus and all of the biblical prophets that came before him. Drawing on the authors many years and multiplied thousands of conversations with Muslim friends from all over the world, this book explains why Christianity makes far more sense than anything else that this world has to offer. The book is written in an extremely engaging fashion that draws the reader in and carries you along. Even if you disagree with the conclusions of the author, you will absolutely appreciate his very honest and generous spirit. If you are an open-minded or searching Muslim and wish to learn more about what Christians really believe or if you are a Christian who wishes to better understand your own belief system in the context of an increasingly Muslim world, then this book is the first book that I would read. I have purchased two and plan on buying more to give to my Muslim friends. This book receives my highest recommendation. Five stars hands down.
