Do Christians and Muslims Worship the Same God?

Pope John Paul II affirmed that Christians and Muslims worship the same God when he wrote in 1985: “We Christians joyfully recognize the religious values we have in common with Islam.  Today I would like to repeat what I said to young Muslims some years ago in Casablanca: ‘We believe in the same God, the one God, the living God, the God who created the world and brings his creatures to their perfection.’”
