Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullah,
My friend/colleague at work is an Anglican Christian (having been an agnostic until his mid 20s]. He is well versed with theology and has an excellent academic background, having done a bachelors and masters at Oxford.
I was thinking of buying him a book for christmas (and no, I don't celebrate it!!) but was torn between the following:
1) Vision of Islam by William Chittick
2) Islam and the Destiny of Man by Gai Eaton
Could somone who has read both give me a recommendation as to which one to go for? Other recommendations are also welcome. I will eventually give him Muhammad: His Life based on Earliest Sources by Martin Lings later on once he knows the basics.
Jazak Allah Khair!
